Busting the forum cherry. SP-1 / to Duracoat or not that is the question!

So for those that dont know me im Wideguy ... I have a sleeping problem... I dont sleep... 15 hrs is a lot of sleep for me, in a week. so i occupy myself with projects. the latest project was for a teammate who wanted to have his SP-1 stand out from the crowd. Together we did an impressive job of getting his baby customized but it lead me to wonder what type of visual enhancements do SP-1 owners like to see out there? and what are their limits? Granted the marker is versitile and is quite "Tactically Sexy" plain out the box but im wondering do players think it to be worth getting a professional quality Duracoat finish ($180 - $200) on a $150 marker? If not what other options have other owners pursued to enhance the little wonder visually?

here are some pics of the completed SP-1 "Hybrid Baller" style.

i see where you coming from as far as investing more money on a marker that cost less than the mod,but keep in mind that when it comes to milsim alot of people do any way ,look at the a-5 a 200.00 marker and alot of players have over 500.00 worth of stuff on it not including the markers price . Im guilty of it . my stock cost me 250.00,lol
any way getting back to the topic. it all boils down to the quailty of the work.im willing to pay top dollor for custom work andf im sure there are others that feel the same way.
what other visual enhancements do you have to offer aside frm custom paintjobs.or are we just talking paint.
if its paint a desert digi cam would look awesome.

on a side note how much would it cost to do that same paintjob on this marker , not painting the regulator,feedneck and asa.



and what would be the turn around on getting it done and back to me.
i dont know if it helps but i can bring it to you any where with in 120 mile radius of NYC.

to take off the stock reg you must remove the tac rail infront of it. once removed you can then use any vertical reg
