Finished Painting!!!!!

I am finally done. It is rough around the edges but it is my first stock. It looks a ton better that the origional grey stock.



This is what my stock is going to look like. I know what to do now to make it look awesome. I am going put another coat of paint and make all look solid. Not to bad though for my first time I think.

Re: Finished Painting!!!!!

Yes sir, I did. It is not as hard as I thought that it would have been. I just got excited and unpatient and now I have to start over with my base coat. Last night I bought some painter tape and taped the whole gun. I then took a stencil knife and cutted the pattern that I wanted out of the tape. This go around I am going to be paitaient and let everything dry real well before I cut my patterns out. It will look good
