I haven't done a WIP thread in a while but I am really excited about this K3GR1 so wanted to go ahead and share what I have done so far.
I decided to keep it simple and just polish the hilt and powder flat black (texture...my favorite powder) pieces here and there to break it up.
I forgot to powder coat the thumb screw but I will need to redo the neck ring anyway (got trash in it) so will do both at the same time tomorrow.
The switches are 12mm AV switches (blue and red) flush mounted and the recharge port is under them.
It will have a CF6 with CEx
batteries will be 2x18650s
LED will be R/rB/G tri-rebel
I am hopefully going to do the install this weekend...or at least start on it.
Here are the pics of the saber after polish and powder (again I have to redo the neck piece and the thumb screw).
