    I recently acquired another Silver Bullet, used, and the finish on it left something to be desired. I was looking at cheap options to make this thing look good again and came across Plasti Dip. Plasti Dip is used to add a rubber grip to tools, but some people use it for other things like Plasti Dipping their cars.

    I used the spray can version of the matte black. I took the SB apart and masked off the button. Then I tied a string to the threads on the bottom part and another to an atomizer that I connected to the top. Then I hung them up and sprayed them with about 3 coats. On the last coat for the top section I demasked the button and gave it a light coat.

    I have to say...this turned out a winner so far. Nice matte black finish and grippy rubber feel.

    That looks awesome. I have a white bullet and the finish is coming off around the 510 connector, I may look into a textured type spray.

    I need to send you my SB so you can mod it for me.

    Where can I send?? I'll pay for shipping both ways and maybe we can talk funds??
