OK, I finished (mostly) my Rodeo rebuild! The story: I bought a non-working Rodeo on E-bay for $30 (+ shipping). Seller claimed all of the parts were there (they weren't). I tore it apart, figured out what was missing, ordered new parts, thoroughly cleaned everything and tested it with parts from my current Rodeo. Now I've got all the new parts in it, and finished my custom paint job! AND the Mako Storm E-trigger works on dry fire. I've yet to test it with ammo and the new grips aren't drilled to fit properly yet. (Sorry my camera sux!)

Well, I noticed Ace put his Fenix project here, so.......it can be moved if someone's offended by it.

Nice, the paint reminds me of Eddie Van Halen's guitar.

Lol thats hilarious. Again thats a nice paintjob for spray paint. Also is it me or does it looks like only the front is shiny, not the back.

me too! if you try, you could probably make it look almost exactly like it (make thicker white lines, etc.)

That's because my camera sucks and its bad lighting. I used an extra shiny automotive spray paint on it.

eya but by then you could of bought a new spyder and upgraded it for cheaper instead of buying all of those parts

I've only got about $70 in it total. I really could've bought a new one and upgraded it for that? Darn.....

And: I already have a good Rodeo, this one came with an upgraded bolt (which I put on my other Rodeo), it came with the e-trigger, I only had to buy small stuff (springs, pins, screws, etc.), I now have a Rodeo like noone else's, and I got the experience and knowledge gained from tearing it completely down and re-doing it.

Next you should put the One Kit on it. Haha. Or make it LP.
