I like your grip modification reference page. I linked to it in a recent discussion thread about upgrading to 1911 grips on my discussion forum.

I like that you used a red shop towel as the background for your pistol. The red really brings out the details of the blued pistol.

Since a 22/45 Mark II frame is thicker than a 22/45 Mark III frame, your modified frame ended up wider than a traditional 1911. If it had been a Mark III 22/45 frame, then the overall width would have been much closer to an actual 1911. Commenting on using slim profile grips for the Mark II 22/45 frame was a useful suggestion. Overall, a very nice job!
