A while ago, I picked up a few of these kits from Addonex - http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/blu-ray-405nm-uv-fluorescence-glow-kit-back-stock-75183.html#post1085462 - and used some of the powder to color-in my old G1 Arctic. It needs to be cleaned up a little and I'm waiting on more materials to finish it, but what do you guys think so far?

Thanks Kart, I was hoping I wouldn't over do it. Now I've got the bug and can't wait for more materials to do some of the other lasers I have sitting around.

P.S. and thx to Addonex for making such an awesome glow kit.

Now it looks like a laser weapon from space :gj:

I love it, it's a very cool laser now :D

Very nicely done, it looks professional :eg:

What did you mix the GITD power with to get it to stay in between the ribs ?

BTW when linking some one to a particular post click on the post number
and it will then take them to the post and not just to the thread the post
is in, see> http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/b...-glow-kit-back-stock-75183-4.html#post1085462

Thanks guys.
I mix up a thick paste from a healthy dose of the powder with a small amount of "Fix It! PRO" which is "UV-sunlight activated".
It's a car paint scratch remover that wont dry until I hit it once or twice with my 405, then it dries in seconds. If I make a mistake I just don't dry it, wipe it away and start again.
Here is a link to the product, but it's much cheaper on e-bay.
Amazon.com: Simoniz S13 Fix it Pro Clear Coat Scratch Repair Pen: Automotive

PS: The green balls in the tip are GITD airsoft pellets, not the powder. The rest of it is permanent as far as I know.

This really looks incredible, and the UV activated stuff you used sounds really nice, I might have to pick up some myself now to experiment with :D +Rep for the awesome mod, and thanks for linking back as well.

Thanks again guys. :thanks:
I plan on doing a couple more lasers this weekend and I'll post pics here when finished.

I don't see a problem with modding your saber if you would like. Shoot me a PM.

Please do tell what you mixed the GITD powder with to get it to stay in between the ribs of the S3...

Wow :eek: I've got to try this! I've been making gitd o-rings and I thought that was cool, but this takes the cake. You should do a tutorial if you have time. I would love to try this out
