I Finished It

So, after a week or two of on and off working on my Ion, I finally got her finished. Let's take a little trip through her transformation...

This is her wearing that ugly costume of webbing. I now pity her for having to have that thing wrapped around her.



I began surgery.


After weeks of tedious surgery of stripping, applying bondo, sanding, applying bondo, sanding, primer/painting, and then finally applying the last coat of high gloss clear coat, she has emerged.





Voila.






The entire time there was a good looking gun underneath.

looks pretty cool. DOwnside is its a little too dark compared to the rest of the gun...just my opinion. thumleft

Soooooooo much better. Very nice work!!! My only suggestion is some type of better, thicker clearcoat or poly coat. It looks awsome as is, but the glare reflection could be better. Very good work!

Yeah, the finish looks gritty, not very flat. Great work though.

I tried not to be too critical, because i know if i did it myself, it wouldnt look half as god. aaargh

Thanks for all the compliments, as this was my first time working with Bondo on this kind of scale. I'm very pleased with the result and it feels even better knowing that I didn't have to fork out $100+ for it.

Nice! 10/10 for the work you did! Cheers

I like that feed neck, I must have.

Not meaning to step in your spotlight but since this an ION post wait till you see the scenario ion the guys at the shop built me. I havent seen it yet but I will post a pic soon I hope.

it's a little rough but it is now one of a kind! if you apply a little thicker coat of clear it will be smoother if you only "mist" it you get a rougher finish. just a little hint, looks great man!

Other than a bolt not really, I don't need a new board.

An ION is almost a shocker. They use some of the same stuff, just the shocker uses almost all metal and the ION has more plastic.

Naw, I meant there's an aftermarket body for the Ion that looks like the body of a Shocker.

I've had both and the internals are considerably different, as well as the board lay out.

One of my friends once told me that they use some of the same internals such as bolt or something like that. Not quite sure.
