Thanks to Spanky for hosting it. You can find further information on my newspost on the site itself.
I apologize to everyone for having it down this long. I hope this makes up for it.
The range isn't superb. It's better than stock, that's for sure, but it's not like my PETG'd Nite Finder. I made this for a display piece, so it's main value is cosmetic. I had it on my shelf for a year or so.
By the way, I have several Nite Finders, and I don't need this one. So, it is for sale. PM me if you're interested to make an offer.
Here's what it looked like. Lots of scratches, nicks, paint wear. First, I ripped off the old, sticky electrical tape and sanded off the residue.
First, I cleaned it and gave it a new flat-black paint job. This time I used high-heat paint for better results. After it was all done, I sprayed it with semi-gloss clearcoat (something I didn't do before) to protect the finish.
Here's the final result. It probably needs one more coat of the clearcoat, but I think it's okay for now. I like the feeling of the coating better than the rough texture of spraypaint.
However, my main issue was the whole battery issue. I would charge it, and the icon would immediately tick down into the red. The thing never had a full charge. Too bad, it was a great MP3 player, but I just couldn't take the short battery life.

From my exclusive log-on info on Nintendo's Press Site. Don't try to go there yourself - you need a password. :wink:
Look how small it is...here's a digital photo from E3 at Nintendo's Press Conference.
I don't really see a point in making another Nerf forum. A lot of people do it for their own site, but the fact is that most people go to a message board for information.
If you wanted Nerf info, would you rather come to a board like this with hundreds of knowledgable users or a banner ad-filled one like yours (with three whole registered users!)?
I made the same mistake as well about two or three years ago. Diablo did it too with Open::Nerf. The fact is, the NIC has never really accepted more than two forums.
IR is right, GN sucked balls.
Don't mind OMC, he's good at making those quick little pot-shots.
And, I also remember you being the starter of the "All Purpose Music Topic" with over 200. Buy either way, welcome back.
Yeah, I loved how they turned the cross into a gun.
I think the first episode of season four was great! I mean Passion of the christ 2.(not to be making fun of others religons or anything).....But that would be awesome.
"Let he without sin kick the first ass."
BK, that's a pathetic argument. You're saying that teens shouldn't express opinions simply because they cannot affect the government?
Leave Politics for the adults. There is nothing more frustersating then trying to argue a point that you can do NOTHING about. Sure it's good to be informed. But most of you aren't. Your just arguing to argue, and that's so freakin annoying.
So Shut Up!
I'm sorry, I don't do that "children should be seen but not heard" thing.
Are you implying that my opinion is not relevant because of my age? If so, that's a pretty moronic statement you made. And to add, I'm not in junior high, and I've never been on the debate team. If you don't have a real point to argue besides insulting me with no substantial reason, don't even bother posting in this topic.
Grinch. You're a kid. Any opinion you may have about the Economic and/or Political state of our Nation is irrelevant*. This isn't the Dumbfuck Junior High Debate Team. You are not the Congressional Comittee acting on behalf of the NIC. If you want to have pretentious teenager political debates, find a forum that caters to pretentious teenagers, maybe comrad lobster can help you with that. We grownups have plastic toys to discuss.
Talio, and others - you've got the message wrong. It apparently came off as that I despise Mexicans. In reality, my best friend is Mexican-American. She gladly accepts the fact that she lives in America and has fully assimilated - her entire family speaks English fluently.
Also, keep in mind that I said nothing in my post about illegal immigrants. I guess the topic of Mexicans and illegal immigrants are often linked, but that honestly wasn't the purpose of this topic. I really wanted to express my annoyance at pretending we live in Mexico. Once again, I'm proud to be an American citizen and I don't want to be represented as anything other than that.
EDIT: Oh, and Evil, if I had a vagina, and you knew about it, it would mean you were checking out a fifteen year-old male's reproductive organs. Were you disappointed you didn't find what you sought after? Ass.
These are popping up all over LA. I'm pissed off. I'm proud to be American and I'm proud to live in Los Angeles, California - an American city, not a Mexican one. I honestly think this is treason. That news station has no right to pretend that California is a Mexican city. Yeah, we ripped them off, but we also bought New York City for $24. You don't see the Dutch complaining.
