yeah so I'm pretty sure that A-5 with the white camo is the nicest paintjob on a gun I have ever seen, you did an amazing job.

I am wanting to paint all of my guns, a 98, A-5 and a Spyder Xtra,

 

My Spyder Xtra is that shiny blue and silver, so i need to sand all on the metal parts of the Spyder to get paint to stick?

Bake for 1 hour at a low temp (like ~100F) Use a thermometer; stick a towel in the door to prop it open. Watch it closely.

Spay clearcoat before you bake.

I just painted my grip and hopper for my a-5. I did it camo style, the tape way and layered it with 5 colors.I think it looks pretty sweet, and i going to do my flatline soon.But note, you have to let the paint set and cure before applying more tape and layering it up. this can easily take up to a day for the paint to be totally dry before you apply anymore tape or paint. I just dont want to commit to my reciever and paint it cause i wouldnt be able to play for a week or so.

when you are painting a 98c, do you actually have to REALLY take the entire gun apart or can you just remove those 6 primary screws, remove the shell and paint that. then flip the gun over and do that side of the gun. or is their a chance of paint getting in the gun and damaging it?

oh and if you are looking for a sweet paintjob, you can get some of that Duplicolor Mirage stuff. they have a limited amound of colors but your gun will be freakin sweet with some of that. i dont want it cuz they dont have a color combination that intrests me but go to duplicolor website and check it out.

A fade job might not work too good with rattle cans, unless you could find some really fine nozzles to put on your cans to help atomize the paint coming out. Also with painting plastic parts you should prep them with a 600-800 grit wet, clean with a automotive plastic prep cleaner, or even denatured alcohol to take off any mold release agents, and then use a plastic adhesion promoter. You can find adhesion promoter in a rattler now, so look at your local auto paint dealer or online at Autobodydepot.com.

Does it work well with spray paint?

I'm just worried about putting the marker back together, and retaping the hoses right.

Fade:
After you've completely prep'd your recievers, paint them completely end to end with the lighter of the two colors.  Once your satisfied and its completely dry use the darker color, start painting one end and as you get to the middle keep pulling the spray can farther away from the recievers, so you get less and less paint on them.   That's it. 

You might want to practice on something first to get the technique down.

I want to do a Pink-Silver spraypaint fade on my 98.

How would I do this with spray paint? I have the spray paint and after I mill everything off with a filer what do I do?

Would you recommend painting the A5 Flatline? I think it has a factory clear coat and I would have to take off a lot of paint.
