did you need to do any kind of modification to get it to mount, or did it just go into place? Looks nice!

Yes, right above the trigger on the inside of both halves there is a flat pieces(tabs) of the body that sticks out. I had to trim down each piece about an 1/8 to get the halves to close together.....that was it! Took about a minute and only used a pocket knife. I probably got lucky my first try on guessing how much to shave off, because these "tabs" are on there to apply side pressure for a tight fit. ( I would caution anyone doing this to go a little at a time. you don't want to take off to much) The Eclipse is a longer gun in the body, so there is a gap at the back of the Mini between it and the body. You have to turn it upside down to notice. The body fits tight with no play at all, and other than that gap you'd think it was made for the Mini! You can also get the body in black, and they sell on Ebay for $79 with free shipping. I think I paid like $13 for the front grip, but since it is rail mount , you can use any grip that mounts that way. The body will let you use an upgraded barrel without any modification, but I was told the Super Freak barrel does need it. I have a 16 inch Freak barrel on it now(not pictured) for longer shots, and a 14 inch front for close quarters play. If you are one to use stocks and a remote line, the body kit comes with an adapter that accepts all Tippmann 98 mounted stocks. I'm 52 and have been looking for a unique gun to use that is light and easy for these old fingers to shoot more than 1 ball at a time, and I'm pretty pleased with what I've come up with. I got the idea from somebody, so I won't take credit for it, but I sure will show mine off! My son has a silver Mini that we are going to put a black body on, and use the factory silver barrel. That will look sweet!!

Saw this build by you posted on another thread,very cool idea,like your concept of "mildo" to "space d!ld*" conversion,have you considered using a airsoft mag to cover up the Mini forgrip?Would really complete the look.
Have a TM7 myself I like, this would have been a better option as Mini upgrades&parts are more common

Just finished with this last week, so i really haven't looked at any other mods for it. I want to keep it as simple as possible to take apart, so I am stopping as-is for now. I am going to get me a piece of round black foam to stuff up in the space underneath just to fill the whole. Not needed.....just because I want to. With the 16" Freak barrel this thing looks really cool. The guy I got the idea from had an Apex barrel on his. Sweet looking! This thing is so basic right now, and I imagine someone could add sights and all kinds of other things to the rails. I have been wondering how it would look with a Qloader mounted to it...????? I want to keep mine light as possible for the longer scenario games and hikes!! Glad to see how much people like it!!

This is true. I think the front grip looks like a mag anyway.

looks good, what you need to do is get an axe, and custom mil some rails on the sides and in front of the freed neck, that would be pretty expensive but you could sell it for 700 or so if it had a nice anno job!

Tried to fit on an Axe, but it is a little different than the Mini. I'm afraid you would have to modify(cut) the body to get it to fit, and with the Mini, all you have to do is shave down a couple of tabs on the inside and it fits. The great thing about doing this to a Mini is that you can buy a rough on the outside but mechanically sound marker, and dress it up with the kit, and you have an awesome gun!

Saw a guy do this to an Axe. Great way to basically get a TM15 without dropping all the money. Unique and comfy setup for I'd say no more than maybe $300-350.

I have $150 in the Mini...$55 in the carbon fiber tank.....$100 in the Dye Rotor....$79 in the body kit. All Ebay purchases!! It has a 16 inch Freak barrel I got from my boy for Father's Day, and the tank cover from my daughter for my birthday! $384...pretty good guess!! LOL

Make sure to post your pictures of the finished product!!! Makes sure when you trim the 2 tabs on the inside of the body kit to do a little at a time, until you get it down to where the kit fits tight and snug against the marker. I left mine just a hair long and drew it down tight with the screws on the kit.
