    I have a potential project pair of Tinfoils that I want to make IH themed. The frames are chrome and I need to make that go away but I'm not sure what's the best way to make that happen. Ultimately I want them a matte grey, carbon or "x-metal" type color. Does anyone have any suggestions, ideas, recommendations or even know any members who do custom work that may be willing to possibly take this on. Thanks everybody
    -P.S. Anyone who does custom work willing to do this PM me with a price and time frame and I'll get back to you after the holidays. Thanks again

    He was my first thought. I'm sure he stays pretty busy but I will message him and ask. Thanks @OakleyFrankFMJ

    Not sure what's it made of... Is it titanium or c5 alloy?

    I can also blast as well. X metal and plasma finish. On titanium at least that is.

    Everything I've read said the frames are stainless steel

    If it's SS then it can be done into dark grey like XM grey. However with the Hollow point hinge I'm not sure if that can be taken apart and reassembled easily. Furthermore iirc the frame has a few bolts holding it together rather than using screws?

    Reckon you're better off just hand-sand the chrome bits and spray paint them yourself

    Thanks. I'll have to check on what's holding them together. It looks like I'm leaning towards the hand sanding and painting myself
