Unread postAuthor: Mihlrad » Fri Jun 23, 2006 7:41 am

I wanted to paint my gun, cause i did a really messy job on the purple primer, what kind of paint would i need to painnt the gun with? Also i imagine i would need some sort of primer as well? IF anyone could direct me to the paints i need that would be great.

yeah, and if they only have fusion in colors you dont want, use fusion as a base coat, and use normal paint over it :wink:

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

I don't think it will matter too much. Your paint might have little runny shapes of blobs under it but it will still stick fine and everything

Lol, you can use PVC cleaner on your gun to clean off the writing\primer stains then shine it with Lacher thinner (sp?)

I think every gun looks much better painted though...

I would definately agree with that. Almost any paint job looks better than ugly white pipe with writing and blue or purple stains all over.

If you paint your gun you don't need to get the primer off, it won't show through your paint. But if you got glue all over that’s a different story.

Just sand it off if your so pissed. Cleaner is meant to clean the pipe, as in get all the crap off it, not the primer. Paint it and your forget about the primer.

Walmart has it, I belive it's $4...

If that's too much, maybe ask a neighbor and use theirs for a base coat and use a cheaper spray paint for the other coats...
