wha wha wha WHAT?? Oh No He DIDNT (just click it)

so ya, its the time you've all been waiting for. lemme start this by saying you all owe me for taking and uploading this many pics. and, as i have been asked, i have included pics from every steps along the way. but, the if you wanna just skip the the pics, and disreguard everything i have done to get yall a full idea of what i went through, look to the bottom of the post

so here we start. i sold my ion for 100$ in hopes to get this project done quick, as i got my alien from micah mcglocklin, and wanted it to look customish. i'm not going to say how much things costed, for those who i felt should know, i told. I sent Eliapb some ideas, and he gave me a quote. for the milling, i asked for something along these lines (they are sequential)






(click to see better)

after we got the final details banged out, it was to be milled with the body, frame, bottom of cp reg, front block, and feed neck ring all dust black (making it dust black with gloss black accents). while it was with him, i came to the realization that i wanted to be the envy of all paintballers (which i found out is actually partially true today at the tourny, but thats another story)

so, i asked tony (elia) if he could do tattoos, and he couldnt, so i figured i would just go to another guy for the anodizing. i looked around, and found www.precisionpb.com , which after talking with him, i found that he was very professional, had very good work, and was cheaper than the other people. i sent him the following images (sequential, too)





so a little over two weeks after decising all of this with rick (precisionpb), i got the following from tony elia







turns out, his machine glitched up and cut a hole in the body. after many emails with jack, we got a final plan together, which consisted of detachable plates on the sides. this took about two months.

now, it has been close to two and a half, and the gun is in the mail to rick over at precision pb. now, i have the following pics of the gun







when rick got the gun, he called me and left a message on my machine, basically saying that with the hole in the body, my original plan would not work. along with that, the plates had to be anodized, making at a body plus six pieces. tony had sent over the money i had originally paid him for the anodizing, and i just said i want my gun done, and done right. he mentioned something about alien heads, and i told him to go to town. after his vinyl cutter guy was finished, it only took a few days to have it all done. i was sent some pics, and he hooked me up with a great price. i said that i could send the moeny in a few days, and he just said hed send the gun first thing the next morning, and i should send the money when i get a chance

lemme step in to say everybody use precision pb when anodizing, nobody does better

so here are the final pics. i got great responses from rick, tony, jack, and everybody who i have shown thus far, including the tourny today. now i stand on it, missing a power button, a few screws, and the ability to get the plate in the side that has the hole in it, but i have been talking to jack, and the parts he has shouldnt be a problem

so heres what you have been waiting for















i would also like to thank ImageShack for Free Image Hosting, i use them so much, they deserve a little free plug

any response on this would be great, i would love to hear what yall think of it

ill have it around MA all the time, and NPPL Boston, for all those wishen to check it out

thanks to tony, rick, and exit for helpen me out

just meh lil project. however, i think im gunna throw it up on the b/s/t when its done, just to see what people think about it / offer for it. if you see it, dont get worried thinking im gunna sell it, just know its more so testing waters. unless i get an offer over a grand or some insane gun trade, in which i can sell for a remains, or for another ceptor to play around with, then im keepen it.

That's cool, we might go to fox-4 instead if you'd rather play there. I've had a free f4 pass burning a hole in my pocket for a long time.
