"Customized" Letus35 with Extras

Don't know if this is the right forum

I customized my letus35 with a black finish, etched brushed metal logo, silver end cap (this is VERY MUCH needed addition, it keeps stuff from getting inside and on the GG)
Throughly cleaned, no dust on GG, macro, or achromat. It has the canon FD mount.

It also comes with a screenprinted cleaning cloth, and screwdriver if you want to adjust optics or clean the inside.

This is a one of a kind, if you get it new from Quyen (letus35.com) it doesn't have an endcap, black finish with logo etc.

Pictures: (does NOT include the canon FD lense)

I'm asking $300 (paypal preferred)

feel free to leave comments, even if your not interested in buying

Nice job in the logo, looks nice. I like the logo and cloth idea. Maybe Quyen could start shipping them that way. It sure raises it to another level, sort of speaking.
Is it the A version?
By the way, we have a private classifieds section under Community Marketplace.

That would most likely be the right place for it.

Solomon, that really looks good. I was considering dong a similar paintjob on mine, but I ended up just lightly spraying it flat black.

If you don't mind me asking, what are you using for that endcap there?

It's the top to an incense jar. It's not threaded and fits nice and tightly on the lense-mount side.

Yeah it was hard to get a good paint job, I sanded it down, sprayed 4 light coats, then oven baked it, sanded down the inside so no paint flecks would get on GG, and finally reassembled the unit. I also put a brand new peice of velcro on unit and battery pack.

BTW, I'm also 17 :)

I have a few offers on this so far, but the only person who offered $300 can't pay till next month.

I'm going to go down to $275, with free shipping. Any questions: chase7017@comcast.net

Thanks!

It's chemical etching, screenprinted on, then washed off to reveal the bare metal.

I used the same screen to put the logo on the microfiber cloth.

I had to fedex my laptop to Compaq / HP for repair so I haven't had access to email etc..

I shipped adapter today. I didn't know I was shipping to canada till the last minute so I had to open up the "priority mail" packaging (USA only) and buy a new box as well as tape ($6.50). I forgot to include the accessories so I'll try to ship those out this week as well ;S
