Well a huge THANK YOU to everyone that has supported this project.

I got the newly powder coated pens back this morning and I wanted to share that with you guys and gals. Frankly, they look amazing. The black and green are glossy, and the white is matte.  I was worried that the glossy colors would show fingerprints easily, but they are pretty forgiving on that front. For those that don't know, powder coating is about ten times more durable than regular paint. Kind of overboard, but that is why I love it. These pens are meant to last. Forever. It is a finish that I have only ever seen on one other pen, so you will have a chance to be part of a rare breed.

The new bases are great, and the FINAL REVISION to the project is making the threading 1.5 turns. There has been some concern, and after some deliberation I wanted to add in a little bit more.

So here we are with slightly more than four days left. It looks like I won't be able to update the video, but as a consolation here are a bunch of pictures of the pens!

      It is the final finish.. With time constraints the anodizes and I couldn't do as much testing as I wanted. You are correct it is darker, but the darker shade looks AMAZING next to Apple computers. A slight contrast that looks great.

      Glass Bead blasted model seems to be darker than the Mac Book Pro (or Air) finish. Is that the final finish? Or is the photo doing a good job at showing it?
