    Did this yesterday :)
    [​IMG]
    Stonewashed everything including the liners, standoffs, hardware blah blah the acid etched it for 45min

    I plan to redip it in the Ferric chloride again today to get it to darken up more , but I do have to say I don't thimk its too bad for my first go at this type of thing ;) I also came up with a idea to add glow to the factory scales button trying to decide weather to do some file work on the factory scales to make them look different or just make new scales all together

    Read a few posts, then trial and error, seeing what materials produce different effects.
