    New Imports, Body kits and a custom paint job

    Its been awhile since I've started a thread.

    Some of the parts are old some are new, and two from the wishlist fulfilled.

    Lets start with the new imports.

    GX56KG3 (Arrived few days ago)










    This guy is not new. Dyed a Orange king brown as the straps were badly stained from a wearing it underneath a jacket.









    Forgot to put in the keeper in the 2nd bath. Ended up with a lighter shade of brown


    Group shot of all the kings




    I went shopping for some body kits.. Some were utilized, some kept as spares




    Then the swapping frenzy begins

    Before





    After









    Got a little hyper color going on there.. Not to everyone's taste. I'm really impressed with Mr.Cartoon's designs. You don't get to see a decorated keeper every now and then.

    Before




    After









    My most expensive 6900 bezel and strap set to date. But its worth all the stars and stripes.


    My favorite 6900 and most worn

    Before



    After (swapped out the boring face plate, in goes a chromed piece)









    Group shot of the 6900 brothers




    Next up, the candy series (again!!) Stealth lovers, you may want to skip this part.

    GA110 HC-6 Got this off a good friend of mine. Didn't like the color combo. Off goes the yellow straps. Prefer it in pink instead










    GA110FC-2. This guy ran out of bezel and straps due to the various swaps. This combo came from whatever spares I could salvage from the pile. Its starting to grow on me









    GA110HC 2AJF (This was put together for the missus. We missed out on the GA110F-2 playset. She loved that combo so much, I've decided to make a poor man's version for her)










    Finally, a custom paint job for a great buddy.

    Jacko, I hope you will enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoyed painting it for you.

    A tribute to Miguel Ayako Ferrari Frogman.

    Before



    Black font stripped







    After














    Swapped the black bottom cover to the one from the GWF1000 BS. Painted the button arrows and bezel with acrylic paint by toothpick with lots of wet and dry tissues. The White and green font on the bezel represents the Italian Flag with red already on the bezel, and the yellow represents the Ferrari emblem. It might not seem much compared to the original Ayako design, but working with acrylic paints is really messy and tedious. It took me 5 nights to complete the bezel and buttons, but seeing the smile on Jacko's face is worth it. Wear it in good health Bro.

    Thanks for viewing.

    Cheers

    Great mod! I'd love to have that stars and stripes B&B so I can make a lovers' collection with the Ke$ha baby-G.

    Any reason why you chose acrylic over enamel? I tried to use acrylic once but had no success. I'd love to know how you were able to get it to "stick" as I have a couple of colors of acrylic paint that I'd like to use, but after my first attempt I didn't think they'd work. Do you just use water to remove the access?

    In the group shot of the 6900s what is the deep purple one? Is it a custom one or is it stock?

    I think that King Scud posted is probably his only "stock" G!! The 6900 in question looks like a GLX6900 with a change of clothes...

    I prefer acrylic due to the non corrosive nature. I used to dilute enamel with paint thinner which resulted in some peeling on glossy bezels. And working with turpentine and thinners gives me a headache due to the fumes. The strongest liquid used for this mod is Goof Off.

    I use a toothpick to apply and wipe the access off with a wet tissue wrapped around the tooth pick. A few coats of paint is needed to reach the desired vibrancy. Each coat is given a day to cure before the next coating is applied. The excess is removed by water when wet, and Goof off when cured.

    Tsips85 got the answer right.
