I think it needs some really ugly grips like these:

Default Gold plated 1911 parts

If you're looking for gold plated 1911 parts, check out www.1911goldrush.com. The guy does good work and isn't all bad on price. I used his gold plating service. I sent him my parts and he polished and plated them for $35 per part. I got them back in about 2 weeks. Since the parts came off my gun there was no fitting issues, and my gun looks great.

I do gold, and other, plating.
Gold does not wear well at all because the metal is so soft. While it is beautiful, I don't recommend it because of wear issues.

All it needs is some crazy mother-of-pearl and gold grips that say "El Jefe" or "El Matador" to send it over the top. It shoots well enough and I wanted a .38 Super. It did come in polished stainless and gold as well. I chose this color combo. Cuidado!
Some mexican peso gold plated grips i got for my birthday and any luck on the gold p.s new to the forum

I have gold on my 1911. The sights have gold dots inletted in existing dimples in the front and rear sights. My local jeweler did it while I watched. They are highly visible to my old eyes.
