Step one Stripping down for painting

I thought while i waited for the stuff to come down from Action Hobbies i would at least prep the M4 for paint. I started with seperating the upper and lower recivers but popping out the rear body locking pin first, then the front locking pin. Then i removed the motor plate from the pistol grip and removed the motor to get to the two small screws that hold the pistol grip into the gearbox. Then to remove the gearbox the small body pin, mag release catch and hop up had to come out, as dose the stock screw. Then, makeing sure the fire selector is set to semi, i lifted the gearbox out of the lower reciver and also removed the other little body bits includeing the fire selector and fake bolt release catch. To prevent the RIS rkit getting sprayed i removed that from the upper reciver.

Step two Preping for painting

First of i made sure that everything i didnt want sprayed to be masked up with masking tape, these bits include things like the dust cover and delta ring. Then useing a fine grade sand paper, i used 320 grade paper, then i roughed up the surfaces to be painted. Then i degreased all of the surfaces to get rid of all the paint dust that is left behind.

Stay tuned for more......

Thanks

Jack

If you have any hints tips or comment i am open to them :)

Any help would be nice as this is abit of a new one for me

Step Three Painting

The Before shot....

Posted Image

As you can see some parts where from a M4 that has been sprayed a kinda 2 tone OD job so they had to be sprayed as well....

TOP TIP!!

If you carnt find kroylon paint dont worry!!! any acrylic based paint will stick like sh*t

I used a Car branded (Hycote) spray paint and the finnish is.... well judge for your self later on! :)

Now the first thing to understand about arosole spray jobs is to build up the layers very slowly and dont cake it on.... for the first layer of primer (again acrylic) i hardly put a thin layer on... and slowy added layers and then the same with the Matt Black...

Why use primer?? Two reasons my dear children....

1. It grips to the surface alot better then normal paint and leaves a roughish surface perfect for normal paint to cling onto giving it a smoother finnish and alot longer life time

2. When the paint dose eventually start to wear it will leave nice nice two toned weatherd look :D

After this project i might reolise a full guide on how to spray paint (if there isnt one on here already) :)

Now for the beauty shots!! :D

No that beaucse i dont have a hole in the delta ring so that was the only solution was to take the Bolth catch out and use the small hole it left behind to feeed the wired through and i was going to wire it into a a PEQ Box

But what is this read mag thing your talking about?
