Satined Dv888


#1

I will be doing the rims later too :slight_smile: i did this on a electric drill. Then I used six coats of all purpose polish on each half. Works like a charm!

the pics make the rims look even worse xD

Looks like a mirror in person… pictures make everything look worse IMO haha.

That is one beat up DV888, the side of the rims look good though.

Nice satined Dv888. I think you did a good job, and looks very clean and good looking. Can’t wait to see what the rims are going to look like! :wink:


#4

all the marks were from Q; You can thank him :wink:


#5

I definatley understand why you are satining it, ecause that is VERY dinged up lol. But nice job, looking forward to see the whole thing.


(Q) #6

I told you what you were getting into. I can’t be blamed, although I may steal that back when you get done. :wink: (We both know how that goes)

I’m hard on my throws, what can I say? Gives them personality. A human isn’t human without scars.

Still plays awesome though.


#7

seeing all those dings makes me cringe :-X, my Dv888 has its fair share of them but dang!!!


(Q) #8

Let’s stop bagging on my handiwork. :stuck_out_tongue:


#9

its your yoyo you can do whatever you want to it lol


#10

Dv888s are amazing… I’m not sure how this has no vibe even after I satined it X.x


(yoyo jake) #11

i got plenty of them and im only 13


#12

I dinged mine, like not even that bad and it has a lot of vibe now :(, but it still plays amazingly


(Q) #13

I ding a yoyo in a special way to prevent vibe.


#14

hahaha


(DanielBG) #15

its cool, i want to see the finished version xD


#16

LOL. You’re just lucky that is doesn’t have vibe. :stuck_out_tongue:


#17

I was thinking of doing the same to a dv888, but i was wondering, if you satine one rim only just a little bit more than the other, wouldn’t the yoyo be out of balance???


#18

Yes, the yoyo would be off balance.


#19

Damn, i’ll guess i’ll postpone my satining adventure till mine is really really damaged, it ain’t too bad at this time :slight_smile: and still plays like a charm :d

Anno doesn’t weigh that much… and if you took of a little to much it would be alright. the only way it would be off balance is if you tooK off like half of the rim.
