    Default Toothless E2DL, E1DL, MIKmod tailcaps, and 17670 boring.

    MIKmod Toothless Defender heads and tailcaps.



    Listed here are SureFire E-series modifications I do. All of which I have received 100% customer satisfaction.



    E2DL, E1DL, and FURY DEFENDER DENTAL WORK

    For those people who are not a fan of the pointy teeth on the SureFire DEFENDERS, I machine the teeth down and dye the surfaces. I don't paint them, but rather I use an acid chemical mix to dye them. It is similar to anodizing but there is no electrolysis or heat involved. They look and feel beautiful up close and personal. Only $15 total which includes return shipping.

    E1DL After:







    FURY DEFENDER Before and After



    __________________________________________________ _________________


    17670 BORE SERVICE

    I bore the E-series bodies to fit the 17670 battery. I wrap the body with a protective cover to protect the finish. The 17670 slides right in when I'm finished. Only $15 shipped.


    __________________________________________________ _________________




    THE MIKmod TAILCAP
    I also modify E2D/E2DL and Z68 tailcaps to make ALL SureFire E-series very comfortable in the hand. This mod makes the button much easier to access as it eliminates having to poke your thumb or finger down inside to activate the button. It is amazing how comfortable this tailcap feels and yet it makes for a very firm grip on the light. It makes an excellent tailcap for the E1B also. I have MIKmod tailcaps for sale at $45 each, OR, I can modify your tailcap for only $15 which includes return shipping.

    This is a comparison of the MIKmod cap with the Z57 / Z61.


    The MIKmod Tailcap is excellent for the SureFire E1 series lights as it makes them MUCH easier to hang on to.





    Please use PM for contact and questions.
    Thank You.

    Awezumnezzz!!! I've been wondering if such a thing would be possible. Certainly beats having to transplant the E2DL's guts into an E2D head.


    Do you refinish the whole head, or just the shiny surfaces left after trimming down the teeth.

    Just the cut teeth surfaces. Textured and color dyed to match.

    Very nice work! This would make the E2DL much more EDC-friendly.

    Party Re: Toothless E2DL

    Well folks, I just got my beloved E2DL head back from the "dentist" for a toothless job. Let me tell ya, it looks so factory that I thought MIK just swapped the bezels until I realized that it was still a E2DL bezel, only better. Yes, his work is that good !

    I just received my E2DL head mod back from MIK (turnaround was FAST!). Really lovely work, and eminently affordable. Just enough of a shallow scalloping left so that you should be able to tell if you leave it on when you stand it on its head. I am putting this on an E2E body for a very pocketable edc.
    Merrill is a true gentleman, and a joy to deal with. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

You can just send me an E2DL head, I'll do the Modification, and return ship it back to you with Insurance. If you would like to include 15 bucks to help with shipping and the Modification work, that would be appreciated. If you are a Disabled Veteran, or an LEO, NO CHARGE. Anyone interested in having it done to their head can contact me via Email.



    Here is a link to a thread WITH MORE PICS about the Modification I make to the tailcap also. It makes an excellent tailcap for the E1B.
    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...73#post3124573 (Thank You flip.)

    Pricing of the E2DL tailcap modification is the same as the E2DL head trim. If you want to do the head and tailcap together, I'll give you a discount and do BOTH for only 19.95 total. I also have MIKmod tailcaps for sale at 43.95.

    Can this tailcap mod be done with a Z61? Or does it have to be a defender or Z68?

    1. $30
    2. A Z68.
    3. An E2D/E2DL switch.
    4. A Z61 in like new condition plus $5.

    M I K is a wonderful modder - did business with him (bought from and sold to) years ago, spoke on the phone a few times, and could not have been more happy.

    Great guy and glad to see that his services are still being offered!

    MIK,

    Just got my Surefire E1D LED head MIK to get some dental work done. All I have to say is WOW! The turnaround for this was less than a week and the work he did is amazing. For anyone wanting dental work on their lights should definitely consider his services.

    My phone is acting weird and can't upload any pictures, but take my word for it. You won't be disappointed!
