Shego Build Thread

Im going to start another Shego project, this one more of a throw together. i had a bunch of extra parts laying round and decided to give this a try. This is just a place for me to post a log of everything, and just put my thoughts on paper, bounce ideas off of people and maybe even help others in their builds. and now since, finals are over, i have some free time to devote to some projects.

By no means am i doing this the best way, or even the cleanest. I just enjoy projects, and I felt like this would be a fun one to get my hands dirty on. Please dont take this as an Instructional How-To or anything along those lines please. If the pictures help, awesome, but I am by no means an expert. i just wanted a project to work on, and a gun that i can abuse the piss out off on the field. just for shiggles.

I have been accumulating parts when I can and heres what I have so far.


an ego 5 frame that has been sanded down. its ugly but i got it for cheap so idgaf


SFT body that haas been break beam milled for 3mm eyes. this body originally had a morlock board on it and i like the fade on it.


picked up a virtue board off of amazon for like 20 bucks.


i have an impulse solenoid, that had the impulse connector removed, and replaced with the proper connector to plug into the ego board.

and i had a set of proto eyes sitting in my toolbox. they are 3mm (pure coincidence). so i picked up a set of broken ego eyes off facebook so i could have the molex connector. this will just be moved onti the proto eyes so i have eyes that plug directly into my ego board and it happens to fit my body.

and i have a trigger, va, reg, eigen bolt... all that good stuff. but as far as i know, thats all the shego stuff.

ill be starting this weekend, early next week when i finally have days off from class.

any comments, discussion, questions... please fire away

Koolaid- in the future. Right now I just want to get it shooting and cross it off my to do list lol. Then I have some ideas for milling the body

The frame will be done with a dremel for me. It's 10000x easier with a mill. But imma do it by hand. It isn't going to be hard. And it won't be seen from the outside so it still should look fine.


Also- I'm sure anyone with a mill wouldn't mind helping you out. Cs900 is the god of milling. But he has a waiting list lol I'm on it with my other shego project

Make a video of you modding the frame, for educational purposes. (fail or no fail)

I'll include that in the pictures. Probably headed to lowes in the morning for bits.

Any suggestions?

Let me rephrase that does the impulse solenoid mount directly without any modification

The impulse solenoids mounts directly with no modification. The molex needs to be swapped And I'll update the first post with the part numbers for the molex connector.

There is also a possibility that the spring internal to the solenoid needs to swapped. If I am not mistaken, impulses run off low pressure >100psi and shockers are ~200psi. If your impulse solenoid has the low pressure spring in it, it needs to be swapped out for the high pressure spring. That's the only internal difference between the impulse Parker noid and the shocker Parker noid. This spring can be found inside a shocker Parker noid. Troll bst for a broken shocker noid... They are all over the place.

You can also start with a shocker Parker noid, just desolder the upper board. And solder new wire leads to the posts.

I picked up a 1/8" end mill bit. Pictures coming soon. Just been doing some measuring and mock ups for now. Look for an update with pictures either this weekend or early in the week. Should get either most/all of the work done by then.

some imp noids are lp and some are not. the lp noids have a sticker that says "100psi max"
