    Chris, beautify work as usual. About that tri-flupic, is it a flupic that can drive three leds, or are there three flupics?

    Beautiful work Mac! You never cease to amaze me.

    Are those 17mm or 19mm reflectors? What's the dark triangle behind the reflectors in the picture with the glowpoxy?

    Matching up threads is fun isn't it?

    MCR17's

    The triangle is an o-ring used to hold the reflectors together. I could have removed it but it slipped my mind

    I didn't have to match the threads up thank god but it was still a PITA to get done.

    Cool Re: Unique Surefire

    Beatiful!! At last some nice modding of the M3 head

    After heating up the head and unscrewing bezel ring, did you use acetone or anything else to clean the dirty thread lock compound?

    I just use a pick to pick out chuncks of the retaining compound.

    Ken I think it looks cool like a tribal sign or something. It's not even visable in normal use....you just see it well in that picture Oh BTW it's an O-Ring.

    Excellent pics.

    How much light spills out from under the reflector to charge the GID pool?

    That's a sweet pic... you should add it to your avatar.
