My Project 1.5

I recently picked up this custom anodized Luxe 1.5 in a trade in which I feel I got shafted as this marker was not in the condition it was said to be in. Instead of feeling sorry for myself or getting in a pissing match with the guy I traded with(doesn't mean I would recommend buying from him) I decided I would shave this 1.5 down as much as possible and get it recoated to be a solid performer.

Pics of the marker the second I took it out of the USPS package. Direct quote from PMs "mine has some tiny dings that were anno'd over by the person that had it custom anno'd...
shoots great I actually am debating if I want to trade....."

Pitting everywhere, eyes were broken, paint in the breech, feedneck, bolt, can, trigger, grips, etc.

















Mod List:
Pooty Mod Bolt Guide with Rhino Spring
Pooty Flat Faced Bolt
2.0 Board with Jarvis, Robot, Decepticon voice chip
2.0 Regulator with +/- reg collar
2.0 Battery
2.0 Eyes
Stripped eye cover screw holes.....

the guy you traded with really shafted you. that sir is a LUXE 1.0 with the eye covers modded to accept the 1.5 screws. also when you redo the core. pick up a stock bolt and used a factory rebuild kit on the orings.

I have both of those already. 1.5 eye covers should fit right?

from the pictures the PO had the body tapped and the eyecovers modded to accept the 1.5 screws so yes they will work. pending the modification was done properly

I'm thinking of doing a black and orange splash but I really haven't thought about it much. I am trying to focus on getting the body smooth and even for now.

How did you get rid of the power button lights on the back of the grip?

They are still there, the pictures are just deceiving angles.

Updated second post. I have set up for the marker to be polished and anno'd blue with orange splash. Should have it sent out sometime next week once I get my replacement q-lock and eye covers.
