    Any of you guys clear coat the hydro dipped grips you can get from Hi Point? Got some wood grain ones and want to give them a note glossy look. Similar to the real wood grips I've been seeing.. Any thought's?

    I though about this too, I was going to get the wood ones from HP and use automotive clear on them. I think they would look sick! I love shiny wood grips.

    I think I'm going the opposite route. Texted Thingmeister this week about getting a set of his Cherry with oil finish for the C9 to give them a "softer" look instead of the shine. Need to order by tomorrow.

    I've thought about it but my hands are small and I couldn't hang onto em. Ended up putting bicycle inner tube strips. (Hogues are OK but add a bit too much thickness.).

    Sounds Good!
    Does THING have a picture of this style?

    I'm not sure. Saw the normal ones and asked if he did any other finishes. I was looking at his Facebook album and there may be some on there.

    Thingmeister has a 40+ page thread in marketplace parts with lots of pics and choices of woods and colors.

    I actually did this today. I polished part of my slide to a brushed look, matches my Joey, and put a couple of coats of gloss clear on my plastic dark wood HP grips. Black Bart did the same, and they look great. Will post pics when I clean and reassemble. Check out Barts 45(?), it looks great.

    This is my C9 with gloss coated plastic HP grips. Does seem to brighten them up a bit. Ain't Thingmeister grips, but will do for now. Probably do the Things on my 45 first. After mag catch and...and... and...SMDH!!!
