Re-doin the 40 cal

Discussion in 'Vintage Topic Archive (Sept - 2009)' started by metalmulishamunky, Feb 7, 2008.

  1. I know, I know, I just barely finished my OD .40 cal but I got some comments on the gun and decided to change it up a little bit. plus my buddy dropped it and it slid across the floor at work and scratched the paint all to hell.

    So i'm going to try and customize it a little more extensively and I'll throw the pics up when I'm done, thanks for all your input guys

    oh i hate to hear that, want to paint mine but i fear scratches to be a problem.
     

  3. well I've heard of an adhesion promoter called "Sand Free" that is supposed to work really well with plastics and polomers, so if this one has a problem i'm going to try that, but for now I'm just using Transtar black primer, its automotive grade, and I've got a friend that used to work at a body shop and he helped me prep it this time around so it should work out great

    I don't have pics yet but I used Charcoal Grey Metallic on my grips and it looks pretty sharp. I have also used Cordova Brown Metallic on some of my guns grips before and they look good. Both are auto paints and I paint them
    with Clear Coat when finished. Will post some pics as soon as the paint is dry.
