So, FINALLY after like 2 months of paying this guy off (sadly, it' was only $200 and it took me that long to do.) I have my Species!

It came in mint condition with the origional stock 2k2 parts as well as the 2k5 Alias frame. The 2k5 doesn't have a board and the 2k2 has the Frenzy. Not sure what version it is, but I'm putting it on my FASOR, so it shouldn't matter too much.

Anyway, here are the pics (sorry for the quality, as I took them on my phone and haven't had time to get real pics yet)

That is how I got it.

This is what it looked like after I got home that night.

I've got to get pics up of the 2k2 frame on the FASOR when I get a chance too. It actually looks a lot better then I expected, and the 2k2 front block and LPR actually match the body nicer then the Alias block and Verdkit.

So, now I need a board, rail, ASA, another reg, another trigger guard and to top it off, I'm going to pick up some red eyes. Once I have all those parts, both my FASOR and Species will be complete. Then I can send the Species body off to be lazered.

Yep. I love local deals. He needed money, and I wanted a Species. Thank God the other deal he had with someone fell through.

What I was planning on doing was to have the bones accented by lazer engraving. I could take a dremel to it as well, but the lazer engraving would be more professional.

What does one of these go for? I'm not looking to spend more then $40 on a board.

I'll try to get some good pics tonight or tomorrow. :)

If you are going to get a new board, look at the Gen 4 Infamous or Empire boards. They are LCD screens with all the features you would need. They can be picked up for around 35$.

OLED boards are more expensive than I would ever think about paying for a board.

I want a board period. I don't even care if it's a stock board. I just want something thats easy to program, has PSP (Even though I hate PSP) and Semi.

This gun will be used in the MXL, AXBL, WXL, and local tourney's if I end up going that route.

I don't care about NXL, Mellenium, PSP 3 or anything like that.

1stGenRex, on PbNation was going to sell me one for my A-Bomb. He told me he has a Predator, Frenzy, and Tadao. I'm sure if you PM him he can work something out

wow, all black looks much better than fade species IMO...

Ace24
08-04-2008, 08:32 PM
Yeah, I have to agree.

Here is what I was planning on doing with the bones:
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y81/TeddyBearFuzz/Paintball%20General/14523201386.jpg

Then was going to get the ram sleeve silver like the bones... but not sure now.

I'm also trying to figure out if lazering will give it the effect I want.

Looks good! Although I think it does kind of need "something". Laser accenting the bones would be very cool/unique. If you did that though, I wouldn't go with a silver ram sleeve... I think an in-between color of the black and lasered silver/raw like gun-metal grey would be better. And if you went that far, gun-metal gray would be a good accent for the trigger, ASA, and front block also.

Either way, incredibly nice pick up!

I was thinking about that actually. Would get the trigger, ASA nob, LPR, band on the reg, and band on the feedneck that color.

I was also suggested to use draniol powder and make a small batch, then rub it over the bones with a q-tip till it gets to the point where I'm happy. It would save me money, I know that.


I just realized I need a wiring harness too... >.<

Which harness, 2k2 or 2k5? The 2k5's crankwalk will have over on IOG. I'd also say pink as an accent colour, real ballers aren't afraid of owning a pink gun. :p

08-05-2008, 12:41 PM
2k5. Yeah, someone brought that to my attention. :)

Also looking at an Infamous board.

I wouldn't laser the bones, somebody already did that:

Is that something you did/had done? I actually don't like how that looks as much... Makes it look too toyish. *shrug* I like how the annoed one looks though. Maybe it's just the raw finish that doesn't look that good.

Sorry Tim. >.<

ted, what if you got the bones laser outlined? but that might make it a little too cartoonish...

Ace24
08-06-2008, 04:28 PM
What I was going to do was to get it done like what Taco just showed... but now seeing it, I don't like it that much. It's too bold. I like the worn through look that the Species I showed above has. I can probably achieve that with the draniol.

No one has said if they recommend me doing that yet though haha.

Ace24
08-06-2008, 04:39 PM
Haha... this is a distant future apperience upgrade. For now, I need:

Battery harness
2k5 Board (Trying for an infamous Tadao)
Eye wire harness
Board wire harness
ASA

The FASOR looks great with this 2k2 frame though. :)
