Looks good. Several people have mentioned a new board with eyes, but I don't think its necessary. With a stock board you'll probably never outshoot that hopper anyway, so there's no need for eyes.

Someone mentioned a "paint job". Don't you dare! Painting an aluminum body NEVER works well. It always ends up looking like crap no matter how much time and money you spend on it.

Anno is one thing. Painting an aluminum body is another. Ive seen some paint turnout decent, but even the expensive automotive stuff (that is made for painting metal) will start to bubble, chip, and flake eventually.

Do what you want with this one. Just stating my opinion based on the numerous painted markers Ive seen.

I spray painted mine... It came out ok. Its one of the finalists in the runn off vote for SOTM BTW... It is starting to flake though. I need to get it annoed.

But what you said about not needing eyes is false. It doesnt matter that it wont outshoot the hopper. There can be blowback into the neck, making it so that the ball gets chopped. Wich is all to common with Spyders. Especially with a non o-ring bolt.

I would say, change the trigger frame to a regular E-frame, put in a good T-board, put in eyes, get rid of the drop and put a CP On/Off on it(direct mount), and put an Orange bolt in it.

Thats just my personal preference for what your gun is and the way it is. I am not a fan of ACS bolts... eyes yes.

EDIT

I guess the ACS bolt will work if worn in... but I dont like them still, so going back on that blowback thing, its not going to happen with the ACS bolt. Chopps wont happen I mean.

I just dont like how they function. Thats why when I bought my '03 Fenix in '04 I wanted the older one... the newer one with the ACS bolt was crap.
