    I started this project last winter and well with a learning curve and still learning I re-did the paint on my BT99 Project gun. I tore it all down and sent the iron out for a flat black Blueing finish. I saw it looks great and I have to reassemble the whole thing.

    While I was waiting for that,and a few parts to come to replace worn out or broken parts I decided it needed a face lict again. This time instead of doing it with AUTO clear coat its getting the right stuff and am going to have Jim spray the satin clear.

    What are you doing to help the steel look as good as the wood?

    The steel just came back from the shop today and was done in a flat black finish(like a Black parkerize). I am redoing the forend as I dinged it and chipped the paint before I could get the Satin finish on. The stock and comb are being sprayed tonight in my buddys shop. I got the reciever put back together and will be putting the rib on tomorow(sprayed it with flat black enamel after bead blast).

    Will get more pics of it up when all back together!! Gunna call it "Rat Rod" ya know like old school hot rod put together in a garage or shop.

    Naw they are to busy looking at the paint to ask what I shot lol I have to go tune it in Saturday morning.


    The posts for my comb I made on my lathe. The rib on my mill. Paint on my back porch. I have even made the adjustble comb hardware but not on this gun(I didmt make the bases) But did all the rest, Blueing was done at a local scope mount manufacturer and 3 coats of clear satin done at thelocal stock refinisher.

    IMHO--I don't like it. Gunstocks are supposed to be made of good quality hardwood. Not flaming plastic or piss elm, that needs to be painted. That is a great paint job for a "57" Chevy. Can't tell I am a traditionalist can ya?

    Seriously--- it looks good if you like that kind of thing. I just don't care for it.

    The wood on this was horriblely banged up, chunks and gouged up, had been cut down for a youth,glued back together and filled with bondo because the stock was hollowed out and A bondo palm swell to fit my hand. The price I paid for it well decided tohave fun with it. I always wanted a hot rod and well at the prices of hot rods and gas this was cheaper. Plus got me a lil know how on painting. Might do my bike this next winter.

    I do love nice figured wood and drool over high dollar guns(I havea JEG with upgraded wood BUT I wasnt spending on this old BT) Gotta have fun or it aint worth doing.
