Upping my vibe(everythigmn preety much): opinions

So here's where i start


V1

Excuse the terrible job in MS paint

1) So i will be painting the body, trigger frame: yellow....on krylon's website it is called "Sunbeam". I will apply 3 coats of this and 5 coats of clear coat. Following the steps in another thread on how to paint vibes.

2) I already have the anno'd blue freak back. I will be purchasing a freak tip and getting it anno'd yellow along with the trinity t-lock. Tab will be blue...body of feedneck will be yellow.

3) the ASA will be a BL gear drive most liekly or CP....once again anno'd blue. The bottom cap of the reg( anno'd blue)

4) trigger painted blue

5) yellow macro line purchased from macroline guy

6) The internals will be part of the blackheart combo. The fore grip cover was a joke.

7) if there is some way to paint the rubber grip sweet and the grips i am undecided....any suggestions?

V2(updated)

I was considering painting my vibe. Krylon has Camo color paints and I got all 3 colors tan, olive, and dark green/black. They leave a very smooth flat finish.

And I'm loving the feel of my stock grips so much I can't see myself changing them. I have small hands and the vibe just feels so good in my hands.

I think yellow/blue would look awesome. Post pics for sure when your done.

You can only dye plastics darker, not lighter.

I should have quoted Crunken, that's who I was talking about.

I think you should color it as you wish. Get a good barrel kit (I recommend Deadlywinds), good bolt, BH board, and an on/off. Possibly modify an Ego feedneck.

About the grips, .45 grips work. You can get hybrid ones if you want. Gunna had some on his vibe.

I don't really like hybrid grips. I like the dye sticky grips and the smart parts ones have that same sticky feel to them, so I'm satisfied.

Just curious, why yellow and blue?

Gruntbull is expensive, but does quality work.
