Duracoating help please.
 
Ve never duracoated anything but I'm wanting to start doing guns. I'm just looking for some experienced people to inform me on the do's and don'ts. For example, would it be okay to go over say a mag release or would it wreck it. Also some good YouTube links would be appreciated. Thanks.

Follow directions on the can.
When using the oven in the kitchen, provide the better half a weekend trip.
Have proper ventilation.
Prep work is important.
Do a test piece that you don't mind getting fingerprints on when tempted to touch "see if it is dry".
Several lights coats are better than one heavy coat.

Are you doing it with a spray can or an airbrush. If you are mixing your own store your extra hardner in the fridge it will keep longer. Buy a gallon can of acetone and dip your parts to degrease. If you are going to use the stainless steel color, prime the bare metal with the white color first. I completely disassemble the gun and have not had problems with mag release buttons.

I'm gonna use an airbrush and a compressor. How long does it take to dry?

Okay thanks.

It'll come with a complete set of instructions. You'll be fine. Just make sure you use thin coats as they said.

rjd3282 09-05-2012 11:08 PM

I usually let things set for a week also. You can touch it after a day but it won't stand up to re-assembly. The more patience you have the better it will turn out.
