    Posted: 06 July 2008 at 3:24am

So Ive been collecting parts and working on this 98 Custom for over a year now.  SRT-4 inspired me to go all out and do it right.  Ive owned countless 98s, but this will be my last one.  Im not sure if I want to call it 100% finished yet, as Ive got some more ideas floating around in my head.  Anyways, Ive kept this project under wraps for the whole build, only a few knew what I had planned for it..it has been hard to keep a secret.

Body Modifications:

Milling-

“TIPPMANN 98 CUSTOM”

Rear Sight

Front Sight

Sight Rail

Front Grip

Velocity Lip

Charcoal Metallic Powdercoat

Polished Internals

Battery In Grip Frame

Velocity Hole Filled

Safety Holes Filled

RT Hole Filled

Depression Below Feedneck Filled

Old Style Trigger Guard Hole Filled

Internals And Upgrades:

JCS Gold Powertube

Orange Howitzer Bolt

V2. NN Style 2 Way Ram W/ Dual Eclipse QEV’s And Lightened Ram Head

Alias Intimidator Solenoid

Low Pressure Kit W/ Ported VA And No Blow Back Valve

Custom Low Pressure Chamber

Palmers Micro Rock LPR- Front Mounted W/ Hose Ran Internally

AKA Sidewinder Regulator W/ Short Top

Scenario Dreams Universal T-Board

25 g. Micro Switch

Red Breakbeam Eyes

Custom Eye Cover

Dye Membrane Pad

Smart Parts Shocker Detents

Rufus Dawg Centerfeed

TechT Fang Trigger OR Rhythm Innovations Trigger

Custom Pro Trigger Guard

Dark Seoul Custom Panel Grips- The Very First Set Created

Stainless Steel Screw Kit

CP Mini Rail

CP Mini ASA

06 Smart Parts Freak Back

12” Stiffi Front

Other:

VLocity-  V.2. Gangstar Chip And Spring, VLocity JR. Wide Mouth Shells

68/3000 HPA Tank W/ Compulsive Paintball Cover

 

Id like to thank a few people that have helped in some way get this project where it is: SRT-4, Macgyver, Firstout, Dark Seoul, and of course Natural Newbie for pioneering extreme 98 Custom modding.

And for all of you Video people out there..I will have one up as soon as I get some more air and paint and have the time to do it.  Im pretty swamped with the summer courses Im enrolled in right now.

Keep an eye out, there will be a collaboration with the Predator II very soon. 

Edit:  July 9, 2008.  More Pictures of internals etc.

A lot of people have been asking for closer up internal shots and how some of the stuff was done, well here are some better pictures so you can see what was done.

Every time I see a "No Tippmanns!" in the trades section for people's B/S/T's, I shall LOL.

And I shall be satisfied.

I think I'll work on my sleeper M98.

Sexy gun. Without a doubt one of the nicest Tippmanns I have ever seen. Nicely done.
