    Wink2 Little Sunwayman V10R Titanium Pimpin

    Hello!

    Yesterday i had some time to pimp my Sunwayman V10R Titanium. This is a real keeper,
    build of massive titanium (not like other titanium series lights).

    I heatcolored the bezel and the ring that holds the Clicky in place, i also made a lanyard
    with a titanium bead that was made by a good friend of mine.

    Some pics:








    Thanks for looking!

    Next time clean the titanium part better and heat with a proper clean burning heat source, it will give you way better results.

    What do you mean with cleaning?

    This one was not treatet or something like that, before i heatcolored it. BTW, i am happy with th
    result. I dont like these rainbow-design.

    Well, cleaning is very very important because what you're doing when you heat the titanium is actually oxidising the outer layer by applying heat. Anything that's on there (dust, moisture or fat from your fingers) will contaminate the titanium and make the end-result look 'spotted' or for lack of a better term rusted/rotten because the newly formed layer will be no-where uniform (and its the thickness of the oxide layer that determines the color). When heating with a less than perfect burning flame you will make things even worse, all kinds of ugly carbon deposits will work their way into the oxide layer again making the result worse.

    Don't get me wrong, if the result you got is what you wanted than its mission accomplished of course! But for a clean even color (or rainbow effects as you call it) you need clean proper material and a decent flame. I myself prep with various de-greasers, polish compounds and acids and i use a proper butane burner running on clean gas (invisible, orderless flame without any smoke). Gives great results every time!

    Wow the light is fantastic. I'm not sure I'd put a flame to it. With my luck I would ruin it. I cant even find one for sale on-line. And the lanyard is very cool!!!!! I'm jealous.
    Thanks again for the great pics. Enjoy.

    With the heat to the bezel or retaining ring, there is nothing you can do wrong.

    After all i will give the bezel a new finish, with a better blue and post
    pics again soon.

    Toby, I love the coloring on the bezel and would really like to see the whole light with that finish!

    Maybe I'm alone, but in all seriousness, I like the industrial finish and would love to have my whole V10R look like that.

    i have a Ti v10r on the way and am also interested in anodizing the entire light

    in this video, the guy literally dipped his flashlight in a solution:

    i don't know if that method would work with the v10r

    I might try this on my Quark AA. It's rough as guts already, and will look very "industrial" with heat treatment

    If you can disassemble the light than heat is easier..... all you need is your basic gas-stove (so no chemicals, inverters or whatever).

    I finally got my V10R on Friday and love it. I am amazed at all the different ways to personalize ones light. I still like that Titanium bead on the lanyard any way of getting one?
    Cheers.

    Looks like a XR-E with the reflector painted, I guess there going for an all spot beam but I'm not certain what the end result would look like. Surely the owner is a CPF member so maybe they will see this thread and speak up, btw I really like the heat job you guys did on your V10's and you may have inspired me to do it to one of my Ti Quarks if I can get the head apart.
