    I absolutely love my dripbox 160. In my opinion as a chain vaper, it is the best mod I could have ever asked for. I have gone through a lot of different mods, kits, tanks until I finally pulled the trigger and gave this a chance. I have the black and red version and the paint started to flake off and it was looking rather beat up. I started picking off the paint and then decided to see what I could do. It is far from finished but I am happy with the results. I have also taken it completely apart and I am thinking of taking pictures or a video of the process. What do you think?

    Nice work!

    My black 160 started to flake as well. So I 'spared' it and bought a stainless model.
    I should have grabbed a dremel with a polisher instead!

    Looks good....!

    I love squonkers, not sure how many you have, but try not to let the squonk devil cause you to buy everyone made known to mankind, which happened to me....:cry:

    But I don't regret a single purchase.....:)

    I know this is a little over a year old but any tips for taking it apart? Assuming you sanded it, what grits did you use?

    Nothing tricky about taking it apart, some small phillip screws and some hex I believe. I bought a car paint sand paper kit from autozone for like 5 bucks had the super fine grit wet sand paper. polishing sponge and metal polish. If you can get the paint off without sandpaper you may just be able to polish it to the shine. I did it by hand no tools.
