lol, it was a vs2 body. The dremel engraver is hard to use, it likes to roll off like crazy and mess up everything.


EDIT
I think I have the lightest spyder now. I did the halback, cut down the frame, drilled everywehre that it's not noticable and doesn't effect performance to lighten it, and milled the body.

I'll get a pic of the frame in a minute. I drilled inside where the grips cover. I also drilled on the top of the frame where it connects to the body, Just make sure you don't drill too much.

EDIT

Heres the frame


It was powdercoated because spyder frames can't hold an anno.

Just going to do the front? I don't reccomend doing that to the frame, it is actually very hard to do. Doc tried to anno his frame but it wouldn't take it.

ive never heard of aluminum rusting....it may corrode but not to the scale as rust will aluminum oxide is actually a lot harder than aluminum is

The body will not rust because it's made of aluminum. If you took steel wool to it and used lots of steel wool then it will rust because the wool is steal and the steel fibers will get into the pores of the aluminum changing some properties allowing it to rust. That is why I don't reccomend steel wool on aluminum. If you didn't use steel wool on it than you are ok, it won't rust but it will oxidize and even possibly corrode.
