S&M HD Trans Black. Food from far, far from good. Love the frame, but the Trans black paint makes it look coffee colored: Photo

Original poster should get chrome
He could have searched this topic in the search bar

Now I have to hijack this thread with a. Real question ......

Does anyone have any example of cerakote paint (preferably red) on titanium ?
I’m debating spending allot on some cranks , I’m going to be not stoked if the cranks come out different from the mutiny topload and rest of the bike I’ve got going , if it looks like shit I might be better to go with some black mavericks or rig cranks

The original S&M LTF in gold zinc looks better than translucent, S&M should bring that back

Probably in the minority here, but Ai really wish S&M would do matte colorways

Matte looks sick but it shows scratches really quickly so that’s probably why most companies don’t do matte colorways

Correct, flat finishes get messed up if you look at em funny... Even trying to wipe smudges off, you can easily make that area glossy...

Yes that is to dark for what I am going for. But I do like the color.

Anyone have any laser etching done? Thinking about getting some done but was told under lighter trans colors is don’t show up as good as darker.

Yeah, I know...but I still love the look. Here are pics of a Tallboy that I beat to hell and then powder coated in matte black

I had a trans brown steadfast. It looked rad. But in my experience trans paint chips off really easily. Unless it’s better than it was a few years ago?

Trans colours don't last nearly as long as solid. The ones I've had chipped really easily, Mankind, Fit, Proper just to name a few.

the color looks classy for sure. Unrelated question though. Being that it's a WTP frame, why not throw some Eclat parts on that thing? From what Ive read, they're just as high quality as the stuff from Odyssey.

I'm the same as Pastals. I have a Battleship on and i have a majority of Odyssey parts on it. i prefer Odyssey to Eclat even though Eclat is WTPs sister brand. I just think Odysseys stuff is better and it is all personal preference

That was just about 2 years ago so I wasn’t really all about eclat but I run all eclat parts on a cult frame

I'm an Odyssey fan for life, been a "fan boy" since around 1987.. Back then the argument was which is better a Gyro or rotor... Answer- Gyro
