Lightbulb Concerns about getting a custom anno job on my luxe

I have been thinking about getting my luxe annodized for a while now.

im curious what companies people recommend. like best price, best job/worry free; know what they're doing (dont want it rubbing off quickly)

also, any special things to worry about for it?

do all the magnets need to come out of the body? (i think some companies charge extra for disassembly so i'd like to just do it myself to save $)

i dont know that much about annodizing but can they leave the eye covers in when doing it, so for example if i got a splash it would line up? im guessing not because all the splashes i seen do not line up body to eye covers.

feel free to post photos if you got yours done and be sure to write who did it.

You can try lasermygun. I sent a luxe for anno a while back. If you manage to find the bst thread you can see the work they've done. Its a custom turqouise with a black maxflo if you've seen it. They cover the magnets with a rubbery material so the magnets do not disintegrate. If they do come back washed up you could always replace the magnets with some super glue and magnets from a hardware or hobby store.

Oh, so they put rubber stuff on the magnets, and thats why they can make the eye cover splash pattern match up with the body? If they take the magnets out then it could be done? Or would the eye covers become bonded to the body somehow?

The only way to take the magnets out would be drilling and thats not a very fun process, especially if you mess up. The rubber is kept on so the magnets are sealed then they are peeled off after the anno process.

That's his company's name. They're the main distributor of Vanguard Creeds. He used to be under CSPaintball/Lasermygun before he got the contract to be with Vanguard.

he did it to his PL shocker... which is essentially the same as a luxe minus the magnets.
