    I am wanting to put my WFC Cliffjumper head on a 'bee mold to get a little more inexpensive Cliffy. Problem is, I stink at painting. Anybody want to PM me their price to repaint a RTS 'bee into Cliffjumper? I have a loose one in hand ready to go . . . :)

    You could probably guy Cliffy for less than it would cost for a good radicon to do a quality paint job.

    I'd agree pretty much be about the limit I could make one for - about ~40 and by the time you have paid for postage for you BB to get there you would be better off with the standard cliffjumper.

    Ouch! I figured it would be about half that. Thanks for the advice. Does something like vinyl die work well?

    The thing is, a quality paint job takes time. That's where the customizers cost will be. Something like Cliffjumper would take pretty much and entire day. I couldn't see doing it for under $50. Even that is low for a days work.

    I use vinyl dye and it works great. Best to do the prep work in the directions, and give it at least a week to cure.
