Fooling around with Duracoat???

I got some Duracoat the other day and have been painting an old autococker I had... this stuff works great on aluminium and steel, all I've done is scuff and degrease ,it sticks like glue .. was thinking of trying it on some brass... Is there any different prep work ?? I know not much likes brass....
Thanks....

Nice Look

You did a nice job of painting on that sniper. Like the barrel muffler.

Thanks for the compliments guys... the stuff goes on real easy..... there are some others that frequent MCB and SCP that have the real talent...
that's an End Compression barrel, had it for some time since they first came out... it's mainly for scaring the little ones

Im looking to possibly do the same to a few (10) Tippmann .68 Carbines. How much does it cost, where do you get it, is it a bake on finish?, and would I need to sand blast old paint off? Thanks. -Neal

Sand blasting is way to abrasive to use on an aluminum marker body like a 68 Carbine.

You don't have to bake it on, it will dry just a bit slower , I put a space heater in front of the pieces because the base got cold...
OH, word of advice if you use their stick-on camo template's REMEMBER not to leave said heat source on pieces to long, you won't be able to reuse them...

good reading to do....
I bought the stuff from the manufacturer at http://www.lauerweaponry.com/

some of wookie's work at http://tacticalcamo.com/examples.php he frequent's several forum's
evalutions from people http://www.bowhunting.net/artman/pub...DuraCoat.shtml

i had found a place to download the dvd that comes with the kit but can't find it...

All I did with the sniper was scuff it up with some 0000 steel wool, they say it sticks better to anodizing then bare metal... Even stuck to some chrome pieces that I scuffed up....I just did a Maveick I'm restoring and it stuck good all the surfaces on that too...

Thanks! Although, I already have one body sandblasted because it was really nasty looking. Do you think it will still work fine? And BTW, what kind of sprayer did you use?

I had bought one of the complete kits that came with the paint, templates and realllly cheesey airbrushes... but it works... can't say it doesn't it's just cheap... Since I do refrigeration work I have a large nitrogen tank in the van that I adapted down to work the airbrush so I get really good quality air supply.... they sell those little spray bombs to feed it air otherwise

Ok, I thought so. I also have one of those cheap sprayers with a can of propellant. Maybe I could just run with C02 or a air compressor. Thanks
