Sorry didnt mean to jack the thread Ragman =) In reply to some of the posts.. To do a basic color or fade its not that much,but to customize in the camo it does take skill and time. What happens is if they mess up and start over you lose some aluminum. They have to strip it down and that takes metal off.I had a buddy of mine who owned a paintball store here in town who did very nice high end work,but he has since moved. There are alot of very reputable places still around but nothing local,I have been e-mailing someone who has done work for me before and he said he would have no problem taking care of it,just would like to see the peices need for ano'in to give me best price break down.If you want something put on a reel for cheaper,you can always turn to lazer etching,that is real cheap and they can put anything you like on the side plates,your name,boats name,a picture of you,a picture of my chicks holding the shark,lol anything.Heres an example of etched down on a paintballgun. Below are pics of some custom ano'z I thought were AWESOME!
