yoyo customizing


has anyone really customized their yoyo i mean like spray paint or other forms of changing its appearance?


Yes, there are at least a few guys on this Forum that have ‘modded’ their Yoyo… I am pretty sure.



Today I heard that spray paint is a pretty bad idea. It didn’t work out well for the guy who told me he tried it on a completely beat throw.


i was just thinking about the idea


Spray paint isn’t the best. Airbrushing is the way to go. Multiple, even coats.


If you want cool paint job, I’ve heard automotive paint is the way to go. Otherwise, powdercoating is also pretty sweet and will be more durable.


Very true, powder coating is a good choice. If you want to go the airbrush route, eggshell finish is very good.


Automobile paint holds up relatively well on plastic, if you can apply it properly. This is a FHZ modified and painted by LukeVader, for the now defunct team of another store. Despite it being 8 years old, the paint has held up very well, outside of the accidental dings. Doesn’t grind well, but looks gorgeous. JHB and a few of the other older members might remember this :slight_smile:


is LV still posting anywhere?

I remember when he made the thread for this thing




Yes, I remember Luke and his mods very well, as well as a number of other great guys. Luke and a number of the others dropped off the scene awhile back. :frowning:


that’s a bummer, he helped me out a ton with various little projects here and there

just saw JP911’s graduated to full-on designs now though which is really cool to see


Yes, Jeffrey is doing well with his work.
