I've done a couple of frames in GunKote brushed aluminum and have been pleased with the results. The wife had me "change the color" of cabinet knobs/pulls after she saw what I did with the frames. Still no chipping, no cracking, no wearing thin of the color after 5 years. (and this is on cabinet doors where she keeps drink glasses and plates.)

I use Brownells Baking Lacquer for non-ferrous parts and have always had excellent results. Looks like a factory finish and stands up to normal wear and tear. Apply with an air brush and bake as directed.

Never tried it in the rattle cans though, so I can't comment on that product.

I've had a couple of guns that were done in Gunkote and it appears to be a tough finish...

I have use Brownells Baked on Moly In flat black in a rattle can on a slide and barrel on a "Tariq" 1951 Beretta Bragadier clone made in Iraq. and have had good results.
Sand blast or bead blast first don't polish and spray on 2 thin coats and bake as discribed. Worked great for me.
F.K.

I've been using Brownells GunKote for years. It holds up well, and is easy to reapply when needed.

I have used the VHT engine enamel paint on my AMD 65.
It will take up to 550°F you won't get your guns that hot.

It goes on easy, let dry over night, cure (bake) the next day.
It makes a finish that I can scrub with acetone & it will not come off.(Tryed it)
That means that gun solvents won't touch this finish.

I use a gas smoker to cure the paint.

To cure it only takes 200°F (93°C) for 20 minutes.

I've been curious about somthing...

I have a Facto-Bake car painting place in my town, was wondering if their paint is any different than normal paint?

Is it the baking that gives it the durability??

Can any paint be baked for better durability??

I heartily recommend Cerakote as the most durable finish you can apply. Surface prep and accurate mixing are crucial to get the superior durabilty.

Good question, Big Shrek. I think some coatings are of the slow "air dry" method, while others need high heat to cure.

Maybe a professional car restorer could answer?
