If accuracy is your game, then you should do this:
The tube is still undiscovered, although there was a hint that it might be a microphone's casing, but with no direct results. My approach was that they used the Supertrooper/Pre-Pro #1 sling gun barrel (which is a (Tasco or related) hand telescope) but that was a dead end.

The color is somewhere in the range of the right ear's base color:
Thanks Rafal this helps a good bit, i've seen some shots of other shin tool knifes looking like it's a copper type finish with some silver color under it, and would
still be curious to see some of your finished ones.
I don't have shin tools, and the first two from the image are taken from someone's work (sadly I don't remember who was), while the tube is just an image of a steel tube in lack of actual found part.
You nailed that color! Great job!
Looking good brother, I'm going to start a set myself as soon as i get my rods from MojoFett.
Thanks Syper, Mojo does some great stuff indeed, i used two exacto knife grips cut down to size, trying to do as much as i can myself on a budget.
Working on my scratch built squeegee shin tool at the moment, just some paint to put down and it will be finished.
Good job , did you say you've made the shin tools yourself? if so great work
Wasn't sure if the top of the tool should also be painted, but I did it anyway!
And the rest of my shin tools. Now all original parts and how many years did that take!
Nice set bro!! ,looks like a real set of mitchells, are they?
They are, and took a long long time to acquire!
Kurtboy, who make your suit? It looks good.
