    I just painted the stocks on my kids trap guns… It will be a while before they get PFS stocks since I have to buy everything in pairs. The TM1 is House of Kolor, Candy Apple Red over silver with silver sequins. The BT99 is Candy Purple over silver with rainbow sequins. The sequins give them the “Bass Boat Flake” effect. I did the purple BT-99 for my daughter last week, and did the red TM1 yesterday. I had to do "his" and "hers" to be fair.

    I painted their guns since the kids shoot SCTP, AIM and Five Star. At those shoots there are tons of identical BT99's everywhere. Nobody will pick them up off the rack by accident now!

    Sagedog,

    I manage my families Body Shop and I’m using the same PPG automotive paint we use on our cars. It is very durable just like the finish on your car. On those two I sanded them and sealed them sprayed them all silver. For the candy I spray 2 coats of House of Kolor Candy Concentrate in some urethane clearcoat. Then I sprayed another coat of clear with the sequins so they’re not completely buried under the candy and follow it with one more coat of candy. Then I clear it with two more coats of clearcoat and let it sit over night. The next morning I color sand the clear with 800 grit paper because the sequins make the finish rough and orange pealy. Then I put two more coats of clear on it and it’s done. All the clear makes it like glass.

    The first one I did a couple years ago, I found out the hard way the not to bake the stocks with my spraybooth because the wood is porous. When it baked the first one I did a few years ago, I got a couple bubbles in the clear. It was no big deal I just color sanded them out the next day and re-cleared them. We use heat on the cars all the time because it speeds up the cross linking of the iso-cyonates in the clear and makes the clear hard real fast. Since I don’t bake them now, after a few days the finish is very tough. With all the clear, if they get a minor scuff I just color sand and polish and it looks like new again.

    Is the metal on your PFS gold or is that the lighting?
    If so, how'd that get done?

    Very nice looking PFS. Like the wood grained dip.
