Can someone help?
I had an old 870 wingmaster I am in the process of painting it 9-2009. It had rust and some pitting. I sanded most of the gun. In order for me to get the worst of it I had to hit it with some 220. I then did the process of sanding it as smooth as possible with lighter grit paper down to very fine scuff pad.
I put a coat of gray primer on, let that dry then finished the primer with its 2nd coat. Heres my question..
When the second coat dried it has somewhat of a rough texture in some spots, almost like I added grits of sand. So I then very very lightly hit the primer with a very fine scuff pad , they came out.
At 530 "today" I put my first coat of khaki tan on. Should if when dry it has small bumps should I scuff lightly again? Is this part of the job? Also after I have all my colors on and if again it is a little bumpy looking do I scuff lightly and then clear?
I "think" I am holding it far enough away and I dont think I am putting to much on ?
Ill start taking pics now. The one thing with this gun is it has a camo remington stock and forearm that are like brand new. The stock has some weird shapes and colors. its kinda like all ran together. I decided not to paint it this time anyway. I am just painting the reciver, barrel and the pump peice.
I have painted things before just not a gun. Barry I am also using the H.S. Camo paint. I got a can of minwax clear polyurethane will that be fine?
The paint job looks great!
Very interesting pattern.
One thing I noticed is that you took it apart when painting it. There's nothing wrong with that, but you need to be sure the paint is not going to affect the operation of you slide & the chambering of a shell from the chamber end of the barrel.
When I paint something I usually keep disassembly to a minimum to protect the internal moving parts.
I didnt want paint on the stock and forend b.c they wre already camo and brand new. I taped some of the parts as ya can see. If theres a problem I can try to take the paint off whatever is giving me the issue. I have not put er togeher yet. How many coats of clear do you usE?
