    i thought i'd paint my first gen I1 in a happy matt black :)
    i was to laisy to unmount the upper body and masked it which turned out to take double the time as if i unmounted it :) lol

    i will try to post some pics here with tapatalk (if it lets me) as long as i can enjoy the happy black :)
    i need to find (or if someone could give me a hint on how to fix the paint on the body)

    until then i will do try to enjoy the nice "pro" black paint :D

    looks good. One thing you can use in the future is plasti dip. I used it on my I1 and it came out badass! I did a carbon fiber theme. The best thing about the plasti dip is you can peel it off like a sticker if you are un happy with it or want to go a different color route.

    while taking off the mask tape some of the paint also peeled off... :( that is why i said i will enjoy as long as i can lol.
    i will buy new body parts and have them done in a paint shop :) does not cost so much.

    do you have any pics and maybe a part number of the dip you used. another question is how fragile is the paint once applied?
    i do carry it on my "phat pack" and the upper body part is the one snugged in and rubbing on nice soft samsonite material :D lol

    i will have to get it done by a paintshop finishing it with a protecting matt coat i guess...

    :)

    Google "Plasti Dip"... you can find it almost anywhere in lots of cool colors. Its pretty durable as long as you apply it in thick coats. I would imagine if you properly disassemble your I1 and spray it with plasti-dip in multiple coats.... youll be just fine!

    i did find a dealer here and ordered four cans of matt black a little liquifier and a protecting matt coat.

    hope it will turnout well. planing to do 3 coats at least and then the protective coat.
