    Pic heavy warning....
    The build is done except for the finish and man oh man.
    It's off for finish here is the finish I finally settled on.......

    The process is an electroless-plated coating of a nickel phosphorus alloy with Teflon® particles evenly dispersed throughout the coating, offering optimum performance. With Teflon® particles included as an integral part of the plating deposit, corrosion resistance and wearability are greatly enhanced.

    Plating Thickness Range .000050 up to .001"
    Tolerance ± .000050"
    Hardness prior to baking 45-50 Rc
    Hardness after baking 60-65 Rc
    Coefficient of Friction .05
    Molding Temperature up to 600º F
    Salt Spray Testing (ASTM) 1000 hrs.
    Polish to: SPI A2

    Today's pics are just before being shipped off for finish !!
    So we started with this.....

    GREAT looking heater.
    Also not to be critical, but it looks like where the beavertail meets the frame is ever so off.

    A LITTLE SOMETHING FROM THE BUILDER .....

    It is my pleasure to introduce the FIRST custom gun from the new shop HS Custom, LLC. It's been a long time coming and I appreciate you Wheels for giving me the opportunity to build to date one of the coolest guns ever. Looking forward to 2018!
