Poor Man's Gray Midnight Jack

Post  dan-knee rock on Tue Mar 13, 2012 12:44 am

Well, the title explains it all. I could never justify paying that much for a midnight jack as I purchased one close to retail when it came out and ended up selling it for unforeseen circumstances..so what did I do? Took a NKD jack with QPMNT PAC and turned it into my poor man's version.

NKD Jack
QPMNT PAC
Painted the Jack all black, but left the eyes
Drilled out the helmet eye sockets to show the eyes on the head if I ever use clear lenses
Sewed a gray beanie to match the backpack
I also painted a set on lenses gold for a Midnight gold feel.
Also gave him a Dyed Frozn Parka.

This is dope...I thought about doing this myself, I just have not been able to get my hands on a NKD without breaking the bank...the way things are going I am never going to be able to snatch a Midnight...but yours looks great...would def love to see the gold...

Hey Chase! Thanks for the love man. I actually just took out the Gold eyes and painted them purple now haha. I was thinking about doing a midnight version of the trouble boy or nozzel instead, but was lucky enough to score a JCK. I see that you're in SD, I'm actually trying to move back out there, but I'm in Chula Vista all the time as my future wife lives there haha. Hit me up if you ever need any work or a beanie for your squadt!

I dig it. I especially like the hat. Now you should try and get another one and paint him gloss white. That would be kind of interesting, then you could do spy vs spy. I'm sorry I'm rambling.

No need to apologize lol. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a few more JACKS or any of the other different helmets, but the price has gone up so much. I really want a Gohst or playge doctor helmet to customize, but the only thing I can get for retail are NKD NOZZELS and FROZN NOZZELS
