    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.




    MIKmod Tailcap



    The MIKmod Tailcap. This is a BEFORE and AFTER shot.



    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 !

    M I K, I have a couple HA-BK heads with the anodize missing along the edges. Could you use your technique to touch-up the cover the bare aluminum and make the head look newer?

    Just got my E2DL head de-fanged. M I K's work is excellent. For months I had planned to swap bezels with an E1B, but I was afraid to damage potentially two heads. This is so much easier. And easier on the pocket too, both on the material and the little cash I have inside it.

    This my new EDC. It runs on a 3.7V RCR123 and outshines my stock E1B by a good 15 to 20%.

    Thanks M I K !

    why not just buy a KX2C? or are they HA only?
    Very impressive work you've done there!

    Any chance you can turn E2D heads into Exe-BK heads?

    KX2C's are available in black and desert brown.
    And they're single level only.
    And I already have one...

    A de-fanged 2-stage E2DL is the optimal combination, IMO.

    The KX2C is considerably more expensive also.

    Are you using the "Aluminum Black" Dye sold by Birchwood Casey aluminum gun part touch up? This stuff works pretty well for touch up work on anything aluminum if you want to try something else. I wonder what my Ferrich Chloride would do to alum? It makes steel dark grey or black....Will try it on a sample.

    That stuff has been out for a long time. I tried it once and it often acted like water. Sometimes it would be ok, sometimes it would be so-so, and sometimes it wouldn't even do anything. I'm not sure why it was so inconsistent.
