    Corpsie,

    How did you cure it? Bake or air dry, and details, please.

    Polane is a good coating. I've painted hundreds of rifle stocks and 3 blazers and a CUCV with it. Its good for stuff that can't handle curing temperatures or won't fit in the oven for which GunKote type products are good. I also coated the gun tub on the Raptor Suburban/minigun project with it. It is a thicker coating, so mags would probably be ok, but I recommend against coating internals with it. SW has industrial stores for which a resale license is required and their home stores which usually only carry house paint.

    With the UV catalyst (still fades in AZ sun), 2 gallons of #69 reducer and a gallon of paint, I can usually get it for just under $100. The sheen of black depends on the amount of reducer, as well as the amount of flattening agent. This green is the ARS "Messherschmit Me262 green/gray" that SW mixes for me. Completely disappears at night.

    (well I guess this board isn't set up for editing link images after they have loaded)

    Air dry. The initial hardening takes like 4 hours. I'm not exactly sure how long because I did it at night. The rest of the curing takes a week, but you are able to handle it within the initial 4 hours of drying. Since I let it sit overnight, I can tell you that after 10 hours it's extremely hard. I hit it against my bench vise and it didn't chip. Hitting it against a surface that dented the metal, however, did cause that single point of impact to chip, but the chip didn't spread.

    Will more reducer cause it to be less shiny?

    If you make up another test run I can make some paint mask on my plotter. The main thing is testing to see if the paint will attack the paint mask. The pattern could be just about anything within reason.

    Take a good side view pic and maybe even a top view of the rifle then draw up the pattern. Or draw up the pattern and send me the pic of the rifle.

    Yeah, like painting a new project. If you've seen the Peel N Spray setup it's basically the same thing. I personally don't have time to mess with finding the paint and trying it out.

    I could do a magazine in a camo pattern if that's the type of test you want me to conduct.

    I'll just need to order some OD green paint to do it though.
