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.

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.

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 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?

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 plan to do a paintjob on my new 98c, but im not sure whether to go with a metallic white, or some silver to yellow or gold or red fade

one of the best things to use is automotive paint, its relatively cheap and looks great...

i may not be one for the camo paintjob, but still cool use of stencils...

Note: the best way to do a fade is to spray the brightest/shiniest color first, then spray the other color as you move it away from your marker, it turns out great after 3-4 light coats of gloss...

also theres a cool technique i came up with to put pinstripes on your marker, ill test it out first, but you can be sure ill cover it in my paintjob post...

great job wookie!

If you have an airbrush, duracoat is a dandy paint that will last a very long time.

If you are going the spraycan route, use soem brownells alumahyde or krylon fusion. Do the standard cleaning and priming before you apply the paint.

hello i have been thinking about this for a while and i got the extra money to do this now. I was wondering if someone can point me in the direction of a gravity feed airbrush, preferibly one that comes with conpressed air that way i dont have to dig up my air compressor. i dont really want to spend more then $50 on this because im only painting a few guns and a ps3. thanks in advanced. if you live in toronto or the gta (you know who you are) and know of a good store please tell me. i prefer to buy from a store then online

Tape and model paint will be fine.

As for the A5 nameplate, I would take a hair dryer and warm it up. Then carefully remove the nameplate. Paint your gun and glue it back in place.

Hey guys, i really appreciate these guides, i'm in the process of painting a 98 custom as a project of mine.  I found this pretty decent 98 used w/ a 9oz co2, + 2 hoppers for 75 bucks on ebay, and just had to nail it. Currently i'm in the process of sanding, and i should be done by tomarrow.  I'll post pics up on the finished product, just thought i'd say thank you to those who made guides.

E-grip with APE rampage board installed, JCS powertube, JCS rear velocity adjust,JCS Jet click cyclone feed mod, camo graphics kit, freak barrel kit, 4500 psi tank.
