The Jedi are simple minded fools who try to avoid there feeling when feelings are the path of true power. The Sith on the other hand are just as foolish in only using anger to fuel there power. To unlock true power one must utilize all of one's emotions.

Nice nice. I'm going to do this to my Aeon V3. Though do you have to make the paper more flush with the grooves? I might get green colored paper.

Do you know if there is like a more darker wood finish? Having some ideas of what to do to my Aeon V3. For any tips check out my post I did of my custom Aeon V3. Has my old TCSS pommel. I'll take any ideas. =]

Menards had a light wood and a dark wood. The dark looks like a mahogany.

The wraps are no slicker than an aluminum hilt.

Though on my aluminum hilts I like to add grips as I don't spin much.

Does heat/sweat/usage make the paper start to move, exposing any adhesive?

Watched the linked video. In past experiences detailing vehicles and doing window tints i have learned that a clean surface is the best surface. Window tint prewash or an alcohol based cleaner might be a good thing to use on the area you wish to cover. It will remove all of the oils from handling the grip and will make the contact remain for longer. Also to get a closer finish I might use an exacto-knife instead of scissors. The tint wash can be picked up at any auto parts store or even The Home Depot.

Just wanted to chime in after watching him get his hands all over the surface and then tacking on the product.

Thats a very good tip, and not just for contact paper, but any "applied" customization like paint, etc.

I Like the tip, just not the medium, the paper he used looks way to...... idk, cheap?  I would have to find something really epic to put on my saber to custom it like that,  maybe the vid wasn't doing the contact paper justice for me.  anyways thx for the tutorial

I used a stainless steel finish contact paper on one of my "Dark" hilts and it came out ok. You can even whether it by rubbing a paper towel over it.

It's all about the Benjamins, and I don't have many, but ideally, I want a Manticore CE in SY with Obsidian for Emerald, FoC orange.
