Finally got a day off the grad school slam...awesome weather, and had the inspiration! Thanks @MJLSr for the 24k frame! Serialized 1st gen beauty with this awesome bone/light plasma I've showed the difference to my other 24k (x-man clearguarded w/chrome lenses I cut) with a reference shot side by side, right after I received it: Now, I proceeded to be BALLSY and try my hand at frame mods for the first time! The plasma was starting to get those 1st gen dark marks, especially around the nose bombs. I sprayed it with 3 coats all around of matte clear spray I bought from a hardware store, to protect the 24k and stop the plasma from deteriorating. I then proceeded to cut myself violet lenses from oem big taco donors I had. Results: NOT DONE YET! I also cut myself some RUBY lenses for my PB1 rootbeer from big tacos as well. Results: NOT DONE YET! Also began a project R1 straight stem. Decided on SHELL WHITE. I taped off the serial numbers on both the R1 center piece and the Juliet straight stem. Then, Sprayed 3 coats per side each peice (rustoleum). Then, clear matte spray each side 3 coats. Custom cutting ruby lenses for them when done. This isn't finished yet by a long shot, but on it's way. Super excited about everything I accomplished today, I CAN DO IT!
