My latest project 98 Custom

It isn't a full restore, but I am toying around with the idea if repainting my mech LPKed 98 Custom.



I'm thinking a flat black to metallic or hammered green with a gold leaf celtic knot design. Thoughts? Ideas?

After installing one on my eBolt 98, I will definitely be adding a center feed kit to this one as well.

I had previously done some polishing work to the internals.

I used this stuff to strip the old paint.

After stripping:

Next I'll be de-anodizing all the anodized parts including the hpr, LP chamber, feed neck, and drop/ASA.

Are you planning on re-anodizing the parts?

No, I don't have the necessary tools, supplies, etc to anodize. So I will be painting them to match the gun.

Actually I got the parts primed already.
I use self etching primer and I've had a lot of success with it.

I spent the rest of the day filling in the cocking knob hole, since I don't need it for a rear cocking system.

A small preview of the Celtic knot I drew for the gun. Just imagine the metallic green to flat black fade with the knot in good leaf.
