EGEL v3

well i took this idea from MangoChutney and went from there. 05 ego frame on a G7 fly. still not complete but very close....i cut off the front of the frame and shaved it to match the curvature of the wdp minireg so it flows fairly well and doesnt leave much overhang on the rear. i was tossing around the idea of cutting the rear to resemble the new A1 snatch grip? any other ideas of what i might do would be appreciated. also i dont have the cash to get it anno'd right now so i was wondering what i could do to color the bare aluminum for the time being so it doesnt look so ghetto??? vernier wheel and eye covers are there for cosmetic reasons. it doesnt have vision yet and any ideas on how i could make that work would also be appreciated. anyways here are a few pics of my work.

awesome, idk about the eyes though, see if you can splice and solder the angel eyes onto the ego harness.

niceeeeee, the v3 lives.

it actually matches color pretty well, i really like it. imo id cut the back to slant up the flow with the gun; you dont need that great of a snatch grip.

someone on my thread is asking his friend about drilling ego eye holes, maybe he could help you out for putting ego eyes in/changing the stock eye hole.

looks great, you should cut the tail off and the slant the metal back, but have the drop off levels to have it slant up like how it is on the top of the gun (hard to explain). That would look crazy.

I got bored.

Top is making the frame match the body lines, bottom matches the back line and curves out a little.

couldnt you just put the angle board in it? you may have to dremel the inside of the frame, but you wouldnt have to do nething with the eyes, just put them in.

adger-can you pm me a close up of those so i can see more detail and know how it would look

giant-thought of that but havent had a chance to see if it would work...only problem would be finding a place for the angel battery as it is rather large

looking into borrowing a video cam for some clips

thanks for all the other comments guys
