Need a little help with using DuraCoat
« on: December 13, 2013, 01:03:01 am »
New to changing the color of a rifle, I have read on manny of threads that you need to remove the finish that is on there already, what would I use to do that, or what is recommended to do that?

Also, I plan on buying a CX4 Storm and I was wondering if I would use DuraCoat on the composite or if there is something ells out there.

    You don't always have to remove the finish.  Just make sure you remove oils.  It all depends.  The idea is to have a surface the sura coat can adhere to.

    Make sure you de-grease all the metal parts and that they are clean & dry before you put any new finish on.  I've done a number of different bake on finishes and for best results you should heat up the parts so they are warm to the touch right before application.  I've not used Duracoat but I'm sure it's very similar...just be sure to read the directions a few times and take it slow and work in a well ventilated area as that stuff typically is powerful stuff.

    a heat gun will do wonders to melt the grease out of some of the hard to get areas
