    you know you'll need to sandblast the parts first right? i used the Brownells gunkote last week for a 1911 frame. problem was i didnt have a sandblaster to prep the part. tried sanding it with 220a/o it started chipping right away. anyone have good results with different paper?

    I normally slather a phosphate "paint prep" onto it. Ospho is one, and good 'ol Naval Jelly has done good for me in the past. There's another one that others have reported success with, but I can never remember its name.

    hcpookie, thanks!
    o.k. i found ospho phosphate paint prep on a google search.
    i assume your talking about painting with the appliance enamel, & no sanding needed? how long did you let the ospho dry & did you use a wire brush before applying?
    thank you,
    rusty

    I found Ospho at Ace Hardware. Naval Jelly is everywhere, I shop at HD and it is near the paint. IIRC you can get it at paint stores too. Not sure about the other stuff.

    Half my guns are duracoated and I recommend it. Search the forum here and you'll see many posts about it. Definite thumbs-up!

    Question

    Hey i couldn't find Duplicolor 1200 ceramic at AUTOZONE, all i could find was Duplicolor engine enamel 500, but it does not require an oven bake treatment? Should i return it for refund and get the right product or what? Jc
