Well i finally pickup an 08' Electra and i love it! Its everything you could ask for in a spyder but my idea of complete isn't with out a personal touch;)

I threw on my CCM feedneck, got to represent sundragon:D , BL 360 reg and BL gear drive ASA and polished the striker, other wise nothing has been done and i'm really tempted to strip the anno and polish everything.

Less time consuming and will turn out MUCH better if you have a professional acid wash strip it and do the anodizing at the same time. Otherwise any little imperfection will pop out like a sore thumb. Try Acid Rain anodizing. They're not that expensive and have done good work for me before -

but i'm just really getting the hang of polishing:) i went out and bought some easy off oven cleaner and giving the powertool polish a try. so far its freaking awesome. I tried an extra LPC lying around.

in the future when i have more time and $$ i will do my own anodizing. The first step to a good finish is good prep work and in this case you need to be able to polish to get a good gloss finish.

but the plus is it arrived just in time for paintball tommorrow.

thank you, its nice being able to stand behind my constant recommendation for everyone to get the electra if your considering a spyder as it will fit most needs.

The scratches aren't him. The body was scratched to **** before it was annoed and he cleaned up the scratches to almost an unnoticeable level.

just played with her today! Didn't have any problems other than i put some really cheese paint that would spontaneously break while in the loader. Shot consistent the hole day on the occasion cheap paint break, couple shoots seemed to straighten out the shots and eyes were back to functioning. I used the stock barrel instead of my J&J and it was great and keep fairly clean.

first game- 2v5 my friend scott and i went out first while the other group followed us in the woods shortly after. We call this game Rabbit. If we get shot out were out, but if they get shot out they switch teams. Since the 5 decided to sit on the edge of the woods i yelled for scott to get closer since i was taking the lead. I run to the side further in the woods and take out 3 guys one buy one with out any real effort, while scott gets out and gets a guy out. Now I have 4 more guys on my team that are clueless and then my tanks runs out of air and i'm 10 feet away from the last guy who is lying down facing away from me. I make a dash and tag him out.

2nd game- 4 v 9, once again i'm one the team agaisn't the odds. were start in one corner of the woods and agree that our plan is "to win" and then when the whistle blows we head our own way. while the rest of the guys hit the line of fire from the big team i had conviently crawled through the brush line on the edge of the woods to find myself lined up with the big team. I pop up and fire a couple shots and one confused guy is out while another notices me a little to late while i turn fire and he is out. As i move up i notice a couple of idiots that had grabed various large shield to defend them self. As my team mates keep them distracted i walk up to them and tap them on the shoulder and tell them nicely "your out, now". With Half of the big team gone i continue up the line but i'm spotted but he hasn't figured out if i'm on his team or not, I casually walk my way to the nears tree but right as i get there i take 2 the arm. Shortly after the rest of there team is out and we won again.

The next game somebody decided it was a good idea to take our shirts off an play in the open field, let just say that wasn't the best idea we've had.

The next couple games i EPICly fail and get out by getting chase down by 5 or so people as i find myself the one of the last people in the game. Both were 10 min chases of me and everynow and then i would scare them with 13+ bps which they are far from used to seeing.

Yeah accept yours is a Spyder. Mine was a fully custom FASOR. (Forward Air Spring Operated Return)

I miss that gun. Wish I didn't rip her apart.

i don't miss mine XP, i was just pointing out the the bodies look very similar. I thought about building a fasor but i didn't really want to tackle that project.
