If not still a good way to take off a little more weight. Here's pictures of Elia's and DC's for comparison.

Skinny, I think you've mistaken the tray for some removed material there.

Yup, that's exactly what I did. I was wondering why there was no one else concerned that someone took a dremel to a Tarantula body. That explains it.

Just picked up the anodized pieces today and just bolted everything together for some pics. Final assembly is still needed. Dropped this project off in person to Stephen at Caustic Customs last Friday and it was done today.

I can't stop staring at the finish as it is so freaking cool looking. He did black, red, violet and pink. Looks amazing in person. Kind of hard to photograph but in different light different colors pop more.

As comfy as the Eclipse grips are they look out of place. I made some aluminum grips today using a portaband clamped in a vice LOL for the rough cuts and a dremel and sander to finish them off. Im going to have these matched to the body.





Also getting some new jewels made to replace the EGO jewels on the frame.

Picked up my grips on the way to work this afternoon. Forgot my screws at home though so they are just laying on the frame.

Also thanks to robertsr on MCB for making my AKA jewels to replace the EGO jewels in the frame.
