Got your attention
Instead of a sock thread (all thought tube versus pre fit socks is worthy of discussion ladies pm me to discuss) . I picked up a new hjc clsp, and got to it
I just scuffed the original finish (factory gloss black) with 600 grit wet. then tamiya water based desert tan (two coats) tamiya water based nato green and nato brown. Went over it with a heavy coat of humbrol matte kote to protect it all, and bobs your uncle.
P.s. Tits - Just thought I would clear that up
