    I understand that technically, Madmans aren't considered X Metals but, being that they are made of some of the same materials, can they be refinished and, who would and could do it. Just curious. Might have a project in mind if the price range is right.

    I took a peek at his website. Wasn't too sure if he had a titanium or X Metal colored paint.

    I believed the good doctor posted a picture of a Badman frame being converted to X-Metal color maybe a couple of months ago. That will be a good reference. Have you tried searching the forum for it?

    I looked a little but, I thought it would just be easier to ask. Maybe he'll come across this post.

    Kinda true.
     
  8. I can only assume "some of the same materials" means they have lenses and rubbers. Apart from that they don't share materials with the xmetals of the past.

    Aluminum and O matter rather than titanium. Aluminum anodized would be a cool finish. The plastic hits are easy since paints adhere to the surface well enough. You can call it Radman!
