The ideal solution would be to make one already textured. Resin print the master and make resin castings of that. Actually injection molded castings. :) Yes I know. $$$

Holding your spray can a few inches further than the proper distance and spraying a light coat can give you a sandy texture (the paint partially dries before hitting the object). Might be enough for a similar texture.

Thanks for putting this together, Roy - order is in!

Are those ECO Grips brand new also? I don't remember seeing them before and can't find a post here about them.

Yeah! Brand new. Very precise, injection molded, with adhesive backing so very convenient. Cheaper than the machined grips because these are molded rather than extruded.

I was lucky enough to be able to get a kit pre-launch. It came in yesterday and I have done a dry fit. Here is a shot of the first fit. I have since drilled and tapped the holes (per the amazing instructions and blueprints) and everything is fitting together nicely now. Next week is sanding and priming. I can’t thank Roy enough for putting this kit out there.

Thanks Chris and you're welcome!
Will you be using the real wader's studs?

I think I might. I was thinking I would cut one of the split rivets off for easier installation and then secure with some superglue. I would be nervous trying to spread the rivet inside. My luck I would crack the resin.

It's easy enough to squeeze the split ends together so they form a straight line again. Then you can probably just pop it in. The resin doesn't easily break.

I think you should try to straighten the tongs and have a slight spread to them. Just enough to pressure fit into the hole. I did that with mine on the V2 and did not have to apply an adhesive.

Yeah, but the ends are visible on the real prop. I need it in the splayed position. Leaving one intact allows this to be seen. I hope I explained that so it makes sense.

In any case, the kit is amazing. Even painting the resin ones will look just like the screen used props.
