I saw the following pic in your forum and would like to try to replicate it
With that being said, man I have a million and one questions to ask lol help :-)
I want to take my time and do this right. Ok so here goes...
98c pro act
What I have done so far:
I have completely taken apart my marker
I have cleaned it inside and out with warm water and dish soap to degrease it.
I am in the process of sanding the outside of the marker (what a pain by hand)
What grade sandpaper should I use on the outside? Is there a tool I can use with the dremmel that would make it easier?
Should I put down a primer? If so which one works best?
I am going for the spray paint and tape method. I do not have or have ever used any other method. What type of paint should I use? I hear about
duracoat which would be perfect but I guess it doesn't come in spray cans so that kind of rules that out.
Should I put anything inside my barrel when I paint it or should I carefully tape each little hole so nothing goes in?
I want to paint my hopper as well. this being plastic, do I also sand it? if so what grade?. Do I use a different paint on it? I read somewhere Krylon plastic
paint. Is this a good idea? Also, is there a primer or sealer I should use with it?
For stencils, I am going to use 3m tape, now to create the designs, do I stick them to cardboard, draw out what I want and use an exacto knife to cut em
out? Any suggestions on a material other that cardboard to keep the tape somewhat sticky?
Any advice from the pros would be greatly appreciated.
