Ok I was hoping that YourMomma would add a thread or section for custom grip jobs. I decided to start one here.

 

Most of you have seen my first attempt on the Tailgunner.

 

 

Here is my latest effort the SMA Flaming Chili Pepper, and apologies that this isn't a BDS board. I'm learning as I go along and had a few problems along the way so its not what I would call perfect, but I hope you like the results.

 

 

Here is how it came together.

 

 

 

I need more practice with the airbrush, and I must be more patient.

 

OK Bros lets see what you got and lets keep this thread for Grip Jobs Only.

Love it TB!  I dig pepper graphics anyway.  Looks too much like a lot of work to this lazy ass though.

I've never even thought about what brand of grip to use, its just about what's available.

 

Tip: You need a very sharp knife and plenty of fresh blades to get a clean cut. Grip tape can blunt a blade just by looking at it, they don't last long.

I used Mardid Fly paper for the customs I did for the Shogo LB.  It's a breeze to work with, and to apply.

@SK8  I use Madrid Fly paper also.  The other colors besides black are whatever I can get my hands on though.

Here is some pictures of a Long Pig that I did for my friend Rick.

It is all cut grip tape, including eyes, teeth, nostrils.  Mostly colored grip, but clear grip with paint for the bamboo and the snakes belly.
