Well i couldn't find anybody to buy my ion whole and i really want to anno my dm5 so i decided to part out some of my ion parts to pay for the anno and keep my ion functional long enough until my dm gets back to me. So the first thing that had to go was my element frame (will be posted f/s tomorrow) so i took the virtue pad off and put it on my stock frame but it didn't look to good looping around the frame going into the grips so I modded it...

Ever think of doing that and charging? I know I'd pay for someone to do that for me.

Ashcroft gauges own everything else.

You need 3432 of those packets for 1 bottle of water.

ok...I have no clue what a virtue pad is...what does it do? I understand what you did but why? That might make it so much cooler for me.

the Virtue (membrane pad) is a pad that has an on/off button as well as an eye button. It gets stuck to the back of the frame and it lets you control the gun from the back of the frame...

Now... Muddytaco's mod was done awesomely. I know have that frame and he did a great job. Thanks buddy for the awesome frame.

i might be interested in stock board and eyes for tinkering depending on how cheap you'll let them go. lmk.
