    Default Custom Anodize Mag Run: Which Color?

    Hi all,

    If I can get enough interest for one color I want to do a limited run of custom colored Mag Lites in 2D, 3D, 4D or member supplied lights but I don't know what color so I need your help. These will be stripped and all pieces anodized (type II) together with a custom bezel (two crenelleted styles offered: aggresive or mild), and an XCapeCap tailcap. The finished lights will be offered as incan hosts or MAGLED hosts and maybe with other options TBD later. For now, please tell me which color(s) you'd like to see.

    Orange would be sweet.

    I also think that a yellow or white would also be cool. I don't know if you can even do white. EDIT: White is not possible. I always thought the lime green ones looked cool but I can never find them.

    If you haven't noticed I'm just throwing out whatever colour pops into my head.

    I want a lime green but I would want it bored on the inside and cut down if that is a option.

    Yellow.
    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    Hot Pink!

    Seriously...Is this regular anodizing, and not hard ano (HAIII)?

    Is it limited to 2D and 3D?

    Will it include member-supplied lights?

    I didn't want to mention in the OP but I thought either lime green or orange would be cool. I can easily get 2D, 3D and 4D but member supplied lights would be fine too. Any cut-downs or boring will have to be done before the lights are sent to me.

    The ano will most likely be Type II.

    It says they will come with XCapeCaps. Can we get the original tailcap anodized as well?

    Yes. There might be a small additional cost, but yes.

    That would be nice if we can send in our own light that is already cut down, bored and has fluting or finning.

    Will this be HA or standard anodizing? If it is HA, I am in for just about any color other than white or pink.

    Orange is nice. I have this for a couple years just can't bring myself to cut it up. I personally would like to orange with a black spider web or blue with a yellow pattern, something you have not seen the factory make.

    I didn't know that there were orange Maglites. Scratch that off the list. I'll change my main vote to yellow.

    I'd vote for some sort of multi-color fade; the popularity of the NASCAR Mag (and the lack of popularity for the logo on it) shows plainly how successful a run of these could be. You could even mix it up a bit, do some with red-to-yellow, some with green-to-blue, etc.

    Here is something to play with. Yes its riflescopes not lights but you get the idea... I thought it was fun to mess with, I just did not like the prices.

    Those three seem to be in the lead, or some kind of fade.

    Here is a pretty good range of colors that are "stock" from mag for reference.



    I'd be in for just about any color, but I'd request a 2AA size please.

    How about some of these while you're at it?

    Lime green or a multi-color fade.

    A gold plated one would be unreal but I know I definitely couldn't afford to puchase one. If I recall, it first has to chromed (not a cheap option) and then gold plated. With gold at its high price now, I could see a gold plated 2D Mag costing well over $500. If only a single one was done I could see it costing significantly more. Gold in colour might not be bad.

    I think the yellow-orange fade in the pic above is kinda cool (it is powder coat though?) ... although I prefer a plain yellow.

    Update: In order to keep the price and turnaround time down I'm be doing solid colors (no fades or designs) and it looks like the popular colors are yellow, lime green, and orange. I added a poll to the thread so you can vote on the color. You can vote on more than one color if you would like and I will pick the most popular color for the run. Please only vote if you are seriously considering having a light done.

    If you supply your own light a rough estimate of the cost of anodizing is about $35-40, including shipping, but this may go up or down depending on the number of lights. I will be offering 2D, 3D and 4D lights for an additional cost also.
