Question Help In Customizing A Penn 706

Does anyone know if there is someone that can customize my Penn 706?
I would like to machine the spool, and the skirt of the reel to look something like a VS, plus give it a nice custom paint job.

Really? Excuse my ignorance but customizing reels is a brand new concept to me after reading this. Alot of people do this?

Yes it is becoming more popular, its sort of like restoring an old reel to brand new condition but give it a twist of your own therefore making it custom, Ive seen penn 706's all chromed out with machined spool and skirt they look sick.

I'm luck in that I have a buddy who's a machinist and will sell his soul for custom pluggage

Sudsy that reel came out really nice, that is something along the lines of what I would like to have done to my reels, but have it painted in another color.
