2D Mag chopped running XPL HI with a MTN DD driver powered by Samsung 30Q Reflector is a modified piece from kaidomain. She’s quite the thrower for her size.

Honorable mention for “unusual” materials goes to wood and cerakote:

Lfatman, those are pretty cool. Are you going for some sort of zombie apocalypse look there?

KawiBoy, I’m lovin’ the stripped large hosts. I think I’m going to strip my S70 now after seeing your lights.

Here’s my F13 I just finished some polishing on. Host is still empty.

Thanks for creating this thread, tim70. After I found out how easy it is to strip and polish, I have to hold myself back from doing it to every light I have.

Man that tailcap is gorgeous…. I just couldn’t do that to my B158 though, the ano is already so nice. My favorite ano I think.

Baking anodizing can change the color of the dye used, usually works best on type I or II. You can either do it in an oven or with a torch but in either case you need to strip it down to metal parts only (no lens, switch, driver, o-rings, or anything else adversely affected by ~450F).

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

Hmm, kewl!

Any way to tell beforehand what the change would be? Is it usually from black to tan? Reminds me of Cerakote, which’d be pretty awesome. Big Smile
