Re: Is painting over stainless only for a professional?
Thanks man.... I appreciate it.
First off, I wipe everything down with a grease and oil cutter/remover.
Second, I remove bolt and mask off all areas that I don't want painted. Examples: scope objectives, trigger area, bolt area, crown, scope numbers, etc.
Next, I paint base color and let dry for 24 hours. Then do following layers with same 24 hour cure time.
Last, pull all tape off areas and put bolt back in.
I do regular cleaning for internal parts and exterior just gets a touch up paint job as needed.
I use the Hunters Specialties paint kit. Has four colors and some stencils in it. I personally start with lightest colors and go darker colors progressively.
Hope that helps ya out....
Let me know if you have any more questions.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
