IIRC Wilki didnīt like the color, but tbh Iīm not sure that was him.... I may be getting it mixed up with another warrior that was being reworked..

It was me. I had it repainted with an exploding star gaphic. It was a complete fuckup. No proper prep work, just painted right on top of the finished guitar. The artwork was flaking and bubbling. In six months or less, it would have come off by itself. So I had a shop remove the artwork and the guitar is restored. The only difference between it's condition now and when I bought it, is the black hardware (originally chrome) and a nasty crack on the headstock at the centre screw for the trussrod.

Man, that space paint job looked good in the pictures! Ugh.
At least you've got your guitar back to normal.

Should I put gold hardware on this, is that over-doing it?

I think I would leave it be. So did you recoup any money on that graphic that was f'ed up?

Nope. I've got my EMG's now. Might put them in next week.
