Man! Those look great! Looking at your Collection just reinforces my opinion that raw silver is the best looking finish on a custom light.
Here's some of mine (I've gotten a few more since this photo was taken, but I haven't had time to update it.)... McGizmos
GMan, I saw this photo in another thread - upside down, maybe?? Wow, what an incredible collection! Totally awesome. But I agree (obviously) that raw AL makes the best looking custom light. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Wow! Lot of work but very nice results! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif You also have the satisfaction of knowing these lights well; inside and out! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
Billson, that's gorgeous. I've found that polishing off the machining grooves from the aluminum let's the real beauty of the shine out. Your piece is a fabulous example of this. Very nice. Very nice indeed.
The satisfaction is well worth the agravation of sanding and polishing again and again just to get the result you see. It was all done by hand too as I don't have any power tools.
/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif to Don for coming up with these lights and Wayne for the converters. The Aleph system is perfect for those who don't want their lights to become obsolete in a few months time.
