I've had paints flake off of a flexible material (like a plastic cup that bends) but really cannot recall a primer that came off gummy like described. In my mind that points to surface contamination that did not allow the primer to bond and dry.


also, did he scuff the surfaces and use a self etching primer?? after each step, i waited a full 24 hrs before the next coat/step and had no problem after properly scuffing and using self etching primer....

Here is what the boat came out looking like. I was pretty happy with it but it definitley doesnt look as good as these guns. The base coat came out looking exactly like the guns but I think I need more practice with the grass stage.

I've really, really been thinking about doing this to my Jeep. As soon as it starts to rust, I'm going to do it.

Stump,

I know this has been said multiple times, but I just wanted to say thanks for all the info and the play by play. I am going to start on a poke boat soon and this is exactly what I need to see. Hell I wanted to get a stencil and I think this makes me want to do it myself!!!

Thanks Again!!!


assateague: That boat looks awesome, I might have to shoot you a PM if I rrun into some trouble. If thats cool with you.

I do believe I'm going to do this on the Mossy 500C I picked up for $50. That looks downright awesome!

My 3yr old boy probably has more advanced art skills than I do, but I gave it a try anyways. The 870 was in really rough shape, and something had to be done.

This thread was really helpful as I decided to paint mine and my roommate's back up guns today. I decided to leave the reeds off of mine because it doubles as my turkey gun, plus we really don't have that kind of grass here in East Tn. anyways. Here is how mine turned out.

Would really like to see your gun against your MODB gun case, I am pretty sure you matched the pattern on it, lol! Nice job that thing will hunt.

I tried it also. Went from a ugly factory camo to this. I like it. Not very detailed but it breaks up great anywhere but in the trees.
