    If you are at all like me, avoid cocobolo! After I use it I look like Fat Bastard from Austin Powers, I swell up, my eyes swell closed, and I itch!

    OK,I changed the wrap to orange & black & epoxied it and ground in a little penetrator tip.
    It took a few tries to get the P tip good enough that I was happy with it so I ended up taking off maybe 1/8" of the tip & now it looks a bit like a simi wharnie,but that's ok,I like the look.
    I thought the epoxy would soak in more & is a bit thick,but it gives a good grip so I'm happy with it too.
    Can't wait to get the satin LRK & put some scales on it.

    Looks good, reminds me of the Busse penetrater tips. I would also like a tutorial on wrapping.

    Yep,got the idea for the PT from Bussekins.

    I really don't want to take the wrap off now that it is epoxied on just to show how I did it ,so I'll use a piece of wood or plexiglass or something.I'll have to scrounge something up at work tomorrow & get it posted for y'all.
    I have a little necker from Rick Lowe that came with that style wrap & I just coppied it.

    On a side note,I did have the other wrap coated in clear Plastidip & that stuff is tuff!It wasn't too hard to get off,but it was hard enough that I know it would have lasted a long time.
    That stuff sticks like glue & took some of the HT scale off when I peeled it off!
    It's very grippy too + it comes in colors.(just thought I'd mention it if anyone was curious. )

    Speaking of penetrator tip......
    I just had to do it.
    Even after going through the quarter & with the quarter still stuck on it the tip was able to do small curlies.
    I loves me some JK 01!

    Understand, but Toyota steel would not be a challenge like good old Chevy steel (I know - probably the same stuff - it really was a reference to an old extreme use test of a JK where a fellow stabbed an old Chevy truck hood to test the knife).

    Thanks and best regards -

    Gotcha Andy,sad to say they probably are the same steels now-a-days.I know they are a lot thinner anyhoo.Trucks just don't have the same solid thunk when you close the hood anymore.

    I asked John and he said he could do any you like, I got 1/4 and I think that might be standard.
