600 grit sandpaper and degrease thoughly before shooting the duracoat. The only oven i' ve ever needed was a 100 watt bulb and an old foam cooler for about 12 hrs. I've done over a hundred guns this way at the shop. Let sit for at least a week after final color(camo schemes) and you will need a sand blaster to remove it. Hope this helps:-)

Ps if you are planning on doing a few buy an airbrush with a compresser. Harbor freight sold mine for $50 on sale. Makes the process much simpler...
