    Whoa! I completely missed Aten/Mahmoud/Archie's post. Those bare TnC's are nice, too!

    Did you end up selling that Ostar'ed, splash-ano'ed HyperLux, Don?

    So it's been a couple years now; anyone have some new photos to add to the gallery?

    I'm disappointed that no one has posted a pineapple in this thread.

    This is all I've got so far. It's clear anodized.

    It's mine, and it is aluminum but it's cerakoted, so it doesn't show off the material. Not sure if that qualifies for this thread since technically almost all anno lights are going to be aluminum.
    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    I was actually referring to the raw aluminum one listed by E-J-J ... there's also an aluminum MJP Mega Micro Proto there too -

    As long as it's pretty, it qualifies. The point of this thread is to showcase lights that are made of aluminum but not just purely functional with no regards to appearance.

    I like the look of my old Dragonsub. The fluting makes it really grippy, and it looks good too.. It's a old rugged divelight rated for 300 meter. Used it alot, but it's still pretty, and undestructeble Shown with a md-4 + hound that did end up looking kind of good.

    I always did like the way the Griffin looked. I had one for a while, but I ultimately sold it because I was scared of damaging the bare aluminum.

    Nice collection of strippers, compasillo. Bare aluminum isn't my thing but I can appreciate the attention to detail required to remove anodizing without leaving evidence.

    I had originally planned to post this for my 2,000th post, but I guess it will be lucky #2088 instead

    This torch reflects many of the things I enjoy about CPF, including creativity, craftsmanship, and camaraderie.

    It is a raw aluminum McGizmo PR, on a Leef 18650 C-E tube, with an RPM tail, running a datiLED 3-speed Nichia 219 HiCRI at 1400 mA max, and uses an mdocod internal spacer for electrical continuity.

    This gives me the opportunity to thank several outstanding members of our community - McGizmo, Leef, mdocod, RPM, and especially datiLED - whose collective work all made this torch possible

    I also want to thank my friends here who kindly helped me to acquire all of these parts ... including DaFABRICATA, Cerealand, Light11 ... and nbp (who first convinced me to buy a custom flashlight).

    Well, here it is ...

    Neat Don! Glad to finally see your 'mystery light'. That RPM tail is wicked cool. That is certainly a one of a kind piece there, certainly will serve you well.

    BTW, what was the light I convinced you to buy? I can't recall, having coerced a few members into over the years. A McG, was it not?

    Old thread, I know, but I hadn't seen it until recent updates bumped it to the top. I just had to say that I like this light, and I really like the picture!
    Here is a list of my lights.
