Double colored hoppers

What steps might you go about making your hopper two colors (half/half)

STEP 1: Find friend that wants to buy a loader
STEP 2: convince freind to buy the half of the color that you want
STEP 3: Buy other colored hopper
STEP 4: Take appart hoppers and trade halfs

reapeat as many times as needed for multiple hoppers

No theres got to be another way because the hoppers I've seen, their colors weren't the gems.

I have an old VL2000 that me and a bud traded on....what colors? That's the only way to get a two toned hopper. Or you could paint half...

Talking DropZone still has some of the old colored shells.

I think I have seen Maroon, purple, green, and a pinkish red (I think), maybe blue.

You'd figure with all the tourney players griping 'cause the gems have delays and the fact that gems break so easily... that VL/BE would start making the colored opaque shells again. But in nicer colors. Claret maybe?

if you buy both post BE shells then they will fit. But if you buy one pre BE and one post BE then they will not.
