Coming back for another (hopefully simpler and shorter) project.
Some years ago ( probably 5-6) I bought online one of the Nihilus hilts made by Holocron on Etsy back in the day. The hilt was installed with I do not know precisely what, but the LED in particular does not look good, it seems to be a single red dye.
As for the other TOPIC (shameless plug), I will list the material and items I used to build this saber and where I got them from.
Hilt : Nihilus Saber by Holocron
1" OD Heatsink Module For Single and Tri LED - The Saber Armory
GOTH-3D All-In-One 1.10″ OD Variant 1 FDM ECO Chassis - The Saber Armory
Main LED : Tri Cree XPE-2 LED DR/DR/G - The Saber Armory
Nano doesn’t support an auxiliary switch so that should work great.
I don’t have any experience with doing an RGB with a Nano so your either going to have to get someone else’s input or just read the manual. I’m sure whatever Nano supports will work great.
My two favorite weathering techniques are A-14 also known as aluminum black. The other is just flat black spray paint and sand parts off or using a brush on technique and combination of sandpaper or steel wool.

ARKM: Damn skunk sprayed one of my cats in the face about 20 minutes ago or so. Had to flush my cat's eyes out with water and then bathe him. Stinks to high heaven in here now. Good times.

Nerf Herder: Oh no. Best of luck getting the stink out.

ARKM: YW and thanks. My cat was doing better immediately after washing him. I'm still dealing with odiferous emanations management though. I only got 4 hours of sleep as the smell was just too much. Fortunately Google is my friend in this regard.
