Default First try at doing a camo paint job

Hi guys. Well I'm still waiting on my money from the irs so i can put together my first ar ill post pics when that happens they said about 8 more weeks. Anyway the subject of this thread my mossberg 100 atr I figured since I'm waiting and hunting season is a ways away I may as well work on my mossy. I've decided to try a digital camo paint in flat black gray and white. i hope it turns out good. I should have taken a pic before I started taping it up but heres where I'm at now and i'm taking pics as I go.

more pics to come wish me luck

Keep up posted on your progress.

In the mean time, is there a name for the color of that comforter?

Just a question, is there a reason you aren't just removing the action and barrel and shooting the paint on the stock by itself??

Look forward to seeing the end results myself... Have fun getting all of the glue residue off the metal when you pull the tape off though
