I have never seen a VTR patinaed before. Redman Jones from ECF chat created it. He found that there is copper underneath the stainless steel. After he sanded it down with 800 grit sand paper and patinaed it. I don't have a VTR even though I am a big fan of box mods. I do have a Innokin 134. You can see the other mods I have by clicking here. You can get the mod by clicking here for $71.
