Today I decided to try my hands at some simple colorization of my dull, black Sipik 68 clones, which are 3 mode, 300 lm adjustable zoom flashlights. **Be warned-the OG sipiks and some of the clones have the lens glued in. If you want to remove them, you'll have to find a way to loosen the lens. So far I have no tips on how to do this** After results: These lights are pretty awesome. 3 modes-low, high, and flash (deterrent), and the adjustable zoom is the best part. Super bright as well. There's been a ton of reviews-so I'm not going to get into that right now. **This was done by me once, an amateur, with just about no experience modding anything-please do this at your own risk.** So basically this will work with any aluminum flashlight-but just research before you start taking it apart. I would recommend using only these lights for these particular instructions, since other lights may require some extra steps and parts-which will cost you more time and money. The colorization (lightening of the color), I believe, happens with the breakdown of certain elements in the aluminum, if I'm not mistaken-and is very similar to the heat "anodizing" that is done on titanium. The black painted ones seem to have a wider range of coloring, so it may be the paint that is actually reacting with the aluminum, and not just the aluminum itself. I can't really give a proper explanation-I can just tell you it works. The most difficult part of this process, which I can tell you is incredibly easy, is actually disassembly-which takes all of about a minute. You'll need: A light (Sipik 68) One oven Small pair of scissors (I used a LM squirt-any kind should work) Aluminum foil The light breaks down into a few components-mainly the tailcap, just gona call it the lens bezel, zoom bezel, main body, and pill. Keep the boxes and bubblewrap that comes with the lights for safe keeping of the spare parts. Unscrew the tailcap (where you put the battery)-don't have a picture...sorry! You'll find it! It's the part with the clicky. I have faith in you Turn it around Next, just go ahead and unscrew the "lens bezel"-the part with the tactical striking thingy, and it should come right off. Push the lens down, and it will pop out. This should be the next part exposed on the bezel...give the knurled part a twist counterclockwise a bit, then put the scissors in the notches in the pill housing: Carefully turn counterclockwise, and it will unscrew, and pull both parts off It should look like this: Lay all parts flat on aluminum foil and make small (walls). I put mine in the oven on the highest setting for broil (on aluminum foil), about half an hour and ended up with this: I had 2 more in, which I took out at this time^ since I liked the look...but the longer you bake, the lighter the color. Finished results Left 2: 30 minutes high broil, Right 2: about 50 minutes high broil And there you have it! A nice bbq light! like that seller on Amazon should have NOT said. With my EDC: Thanks for looking!
