Tried to Bake my VG-10, Couldn’t get the head to match body and tail. Ended up with hard baked body and tail, stripped and polished the head and 2 rings on the body to blend it a bit.

I have another one… Thumbs Up
Bake & polished will remain as is, I like it. Empty at the moment, but that will change tomorrow. Think this one will go XP-L HI on a FET. Will toy with some triple/quad spacers I have and if I have something I can get to easily work, it will go that route.
Other got an XM-L2 U4 1A on Noctigon and stock driver, bypassed springs.

This is the best looking L6 I have ever seen!
Rat style Smile looks like it was used for 30 years and a little bit rusted and abused. Nice job!

Agreed!

My first try to get a vintage looking light ended like this:

I deanodized the parts with sodium hydroxide and applied oven cleaner after that. Well, the sodium hydroxide completely dissolved the head. Either it was a different alloy or it was just too thin. I will keep on trying.
