Thread: Cerakote pics thread? All lights, brands, and shops... lets see them!

    Buttrock Cerakote pics thread? All lights, brands, and shops... lets see them!

    I have seen a few pics here and there but I cant find a dedicated Cerakote PICS thread. There is the check in thread but that seems to be going the negative way. Anybody HAPPY with their Cerakote jobs? Pics of any light, any brand, and from any shop. Lets see them all in one location.


    Anyway, Ill start. I just got these babies and Im stoked. Turned out great!



    First off, A white cerakoted 6P body with Orange Solarforce bezel and tail, with black coated crenelated bezel. Arent these search and rescue colors from somewhere?





    Oh and then my "Skunky E2DL" with black head and tail with White cerakoted body. Anybody seen a Cerakoted E2DL body yet?





    I also wanted a matching "Skunky 6PDL" with stock head and tail and white cerakoted body.




    And an Orange 2X18650 Solarforce





    My 6PDL head and tail were pretty banged up so I opted to not coat them. I know there has been some issues with the coating coming off of edges so Im hoping with only the body coated and the heads and tails stock, it should be better.

    So come on guys, lets see your Cerakoted beauties!

    I've resisted buying any cerakoted lights on account of the reported issues of durability. But seeing the photos of your lights, I'm tempted to give it a try.

    My SF C2 will be going out on Monday for a 'kote job. But you'll have to wait about 2 weeks to see her all done. I think the result will be quite nice though.

    It's a surprise. But unless I come across one soon, I think I can safely say it will be 1 of 1 in this color on the forums.

    Quoting myself from the C2 addicts thread-

Indoors it's more red, but in sunlight it is a beautiful dark orange. Really nice! Huge thanks to the guy who made this happen.

    Reassembled now with NB SST50, McClicky, polished bezel ring, powered on 17670s. Hope you guys like it.

    She is unique nbp!

    You were right, I've never seen this color Cerakote before! So this "limited edition" is a mix of orange and red?


    Oh btw, what kind of runtime do u get on 17670 with that SST-50?


    PS whoever did that does nice work

    Hey Captain,

    Thanks, glad you like it. I'm pretty sure no one else has this color. If you want the who and what of this job, PM me, I'm not going to post it.

    As far as runtime, I have never run it down completely, but I had originally calculated about 30-35 min runtime at about 550 lm, and Dave confirmed that it's probably pretty accurate. I use high sparingly and just swap cells after a couple uses to keep them healthy. So far it has been a good combo.

    Yeah they did a really nice job, I will see if I can get a clearer shot of the color, not sure why my other pics were so grainy.

    It's a really nice module for this light, I don't think you'll be disappointed at all. NB does nice work, I haven't had an issue with it at all.

    It's called "hidden white" and is a matte finish.

    Thanks - I have done a lot of powder coating and I want to try cerakote. They have 2 white colors, bright white and hidden white. Powder Coat is great, but it is thick and tends to fill in the knurling on the bodies. Cerakote is thinner and is supposed to be more durable ( and expensive )

    I ordered samples from NIC industries of the 2 whites, plus 3 other colors.

    white powder coat

    Now I can see the darkness .

    Great collection of whites! Sorry about your lost 6P, at least you scored a GITD C2, congrats! Thats the one I was waiting on but they sold out before I received notification from the "Insider". Hopefully they will do another run of C2's but in the meantime, I am having a very difficult time not ordering one of the remaining 6P's or the the last Z2 in stock of the GITD flavor!!
    Please post up when you receive your C2!

    Yeah, it was a stroke of luck that I just happened to visit the page. There was only 1 in stock and I just didn't hesitate. I posted night pics of the new GITD C2 in the C2-HA lover thread in General. I'll update here with all four lights in a row. "Kote-lection" I dig it and the the Stormtrooper look...definitely growing on me.
    Cheers!

    BTW, what sort of table or shooting tent are you using to get those fab images? Bit classier than the rug in my home office.

    I ended up breaking down and ordering the last GITD Z2 in stock, resistance was futile, so I will have some more pics to share soon!

    Thanks for the props on my pics! I do a primitive setup on my work bench in my garage. I use the back side of a poster that I curl up 90* to acheive the white background and utilize two seperate flourescent lights to fill in the shadows. Oh, and snap pics with a Canon PowerShot A610. Rated at only 5 mega pixels, it my be time for a new camera! Very rudimentary but if you take enough shots, you are bound to get a decent one. I have about a 15:1 shot ratio, for every 15 pics, I get about 1 keeper! If I remember, when I next have it setup, I'll take a shot of my "setup"!

    Wow. Very impressive, sir. Your technique is punching well above its weight in terms of the results. And the results speak for themselves. If I may be sol bold, it's not the number of shots, but the set up. Nicely done.
