    Handsome devil!

    The Copper Vein is such a handsome finish.. I'd like to have one but frankly I'm not sure I am sufficiently civilized to pull it off :p

    The picture doesn't capture the color it really looks nice in normal lighting, the RM is so polished it looks more like gold then brass.
    I just got the copper vein door a couple days ago.
    It's my favorite color combo, for now,

    :)

    I noticed that you have to get it in just the right lighting to really get a good picture of the copper vein, it'll either be too shiny or just look dark otherwise. They always look slick in person tho! :)

    Looking awesome! The black wrinkle/copper vein is one of my favorites. I absolutely love mine but it's a Mini 2.1. I may just have to get copper vein doors for my Grand & VV Grand someday just to give them a new look sometimes.

    Can you buy the doors on their own ?

    Man, I just ordered that exact same set-up. That looks sick. I can't wait to receive mine.

    Thanks for posting.

    No need to title the post copycat, I think it looks great and has a unique look. Those colors all meld together very well.

    I also admire the way you setup that photo. It's easy to imagine you having a big satisfying vape after sawing up a tree with a your Stihl or Poulan. ;)

    cheers

    COPY CAT!

    ;)


    I used an old 510 to 510 connector to chuck the RM up in a cordless drill and started with 220 grit to remove the nickel plating.
    Followed by 800 grit wet-n-dry to remove the 220 scratches, then the 2000 grit wet with a little dish soap polished it right up.
    Used some metal polish while still in the drill to finish it to look like gold. :)

    Do y'all think a cape cod polishing cloth would gain this same effect?

    Very nice Stat.

    I used Nevrdull on mine when I first received it and it gave it that shiny gold look. After using it for a while now though, I've resisted the urge to polish it and it's developed a slight patina from handling ( screwing, unscrewing, wick changes) and darkened up slightly and resembles yours. I actually think it matches the copper vein better so I may neglect the polish for another couple weeks and just roll with it.

    cheers

    Never heard of those... looks like I got some googlin to do!

    Yeah after I posted that I noticed some patina already starting to develop.. I may just leave it how Rob sent it.

    Either way it is a handsome addition, imho :)

    You wouldn't know how much the individual doors cost, would you?
