The Clark Meltdown really looks the best on a high gloss blued gun as opposed to stainless. The high gloss blue combined with the melted look of the work makes the gun look like it's wet and made of wax that's starting to melt. It's truly an amazing look. I have a friend who had a Colt Commander done like this in high polish blue and it's really one of the few guns that absolutely makes me drool.

I've called Clark's to have the Meltdown done, but they are no longer accepting orders from customers. The only way to get the Meltdown is by buying one of their custom guns. Not cheap though...

Sweet...love to see a CZ in wood. Where did you get those? Been looking for some wooden grips for a 75 Compact.

They are Vandal's Handles. Not sure if he's still making them. Hakan makes some amazing wooden grips, too
