    Got my street chrome Slim confiscated on a flight through China. Japan and Korea allow one lighter in carry on bags but none in checked luggage. Apparently China is the opposite...

    My replacements:

    Any recommendations on a good place to get some small crosses or other items to mod the Zippos with?

    Is everyone making these skull lighters or are there sites to purchase? Steel flame is a little out of my price range

    Cohiba007, these types of skull lighters are available from a number of sources, from Amazon to eBay. Just search for skull Zippo, sugar skull Zippo, Day of the Dead Zippo, etc.

    If you're specifically referring to the type of lighter similar to what BrownSugar11 had a pic of in Post #232, lots of people make them or you can make one yourself: once you find a skull design you like (these are available from plenty of online sites: again Amazon and ebay, etsy, SkullJewelry, Northskull, and so on, even Michaels has some), you can solder it on to a plain chrome lighter or brass or whatever (the 'correct way' is to sand the chrome down to the base brass metal first) ... I even have a buddy that just uses Gorilla Glue and swears he's never had a metal 'motif' fall off (that's not my preferred method: solder works for me!). Have fun making your own!

    Haven't had a chance to clean it up, but the brass will polish up nicely!
