appreciate it.

im taking my time with it... changing ideas around while its still apart. im tryin to find black eye covers to trade someone, need to get the red LED mod done for the noid, and am rethinking the snatch grip situation.

when i get some time off ill try one more crack at making my own, or im gonna send off the frame to be milled for a snatch grip. if i can find the stock snatch grip thatd be great but im also looking at an olive nxt stock snatch grip, thinking thatd look awesome too. oh, and found some better condition old school RL timmy grips i might get too

Looking good. What I would do is a Gunmetal and rust acid wash with black can/sleeve and barrel.

Kinda makes me want to get a RL now. But I will pass. If I do another project it will be to do a stock NXT in the anodizing I was thinking of doing 5 years ago.

I say make it all chameleony rainbowy (duracoat?), or make it look like gunmetal throughout with rust on all the trim and all the divets anodized to look like rusted rivets.

The rusty shocker sounds dope as balls.

Especially on the complicated milling on the RL

That's basically what the gunmetal w/ rust acid wash would look like. To get that detailed in it, it would have to be an acid wash or a splash technique done carefully by hand with each color. I would go gunmetal as the base color, use black in the creases between the riveted "panels" and then do rust weathered lines comming down from some rivits and panels. I would also do an effect with the panels where most are the same dust texture, but have one or two slightly off on the texture and maybe one full gloss just to make it look like it was battle field repairs with spare parts from another. If you really wanna take it over the top, get some stinger paintball grip pannels to match but have WWII era pin-up girl nose art on the left pannel along with some catchy name. And if gunmetal is not your color, go OD Green for the base color and use gunmetal for the bolt guide, sleeve, can, and barrel.

It's something like this why I want my buddy at PBCustomz to mentor me in anodizing. I would love to start pulling off some anodizing like this. I'm tired of the wrapped markers comming from the factory that they charge an extra $300 for. If it's anodized, it would be so much harder to get an exact match from marker to marker and so it would make each marker unique for the customer.
