View Full Version : Turning a VS2 into a wood ball gun.

Looking into doing some body shape mods and was thinking of Dura Coating my marker. I live in Washington, Tring to decide on pattern or just a flat black. http://www.houtsenterprises.net/dur_blacks.html
I have a few friends that say it is a great product. I Know this might not be the right spot for it, but who would know woods like the MR fans.

wrong forum. this is an MR2 forum.

I was going to try to help you out regardless of the fact that it is in the wrong section. But seeing as I know nothing about Dura Coating, you posted a URL not a link, I can't. Not because I can't type it in myself, but because it is 6:30 in the morning and having to type it in would frustrate me. Sorry, fix the link and I will help after I get some sleep. Sorry for not putting forth any effort, I haven't slept.

well i guess you could duracoat it, you would likely have to send it into a shop to have it done if you dont know how to do it yourself, but you could just get different shades of krylon camo paint and do what alter 77 did.

Here are some better pics of my MR2. Also...Here are the things you need to do a digi-camo paint scheme. the materials are as follows:

1. Spraypaint - Krylon Camouflage ULTRA FLAT. pick your colors
2. Notecards - I used the note cards used for school presentations
3. Pencil
4. Exacto knife razor blade
5. Digital camouflage pattern example (type "digital camouflage" in google image search)

here are the pics:




HERE are the detailed instructions for making your paint scheme:

1. copy desired digital pattern onto notecards with pencil
2. cut out penciled-in shapes with exacto blade to make a stencil
3. (this is what i did....) throw down a base coat (mine was the khaki color)
4. use stencil and spray color #2 wait to dry before applying next color
5. change the stencil and spray on color # 3

I only used 3 colors, but by all means, use more if you'd like.

There you go! It's basic, but is tedious, and if you're like me, you'll get a whole lot of paint on your hands. good luck, and hit me up if you've got any more questions. thanks for looking!

i plan on doing this to my mr2 in the not too distant future, hope this helps

by the way alter, your gun is sick!

hey, thanks for the input. I'm happy with the way my weapon turned out. man, I feel kinda bad for shooting this guy down right away by saying it was strictly an MR2 forum. I didn't even read his post really. Anyway, if he's thinking about this "duracoat" stuff, he should just choose from some different kinds of krylon paints available. Krylon is good quality rattle-can paint, and they have different kinds of black, like gloss, semi-flat, and flat black. I love the way my MR2 came out with the krylon camo colors. I would just be sure to put on at least 2 layers with the first coat to minimize chipping. But, as darth massacre said with his gun, the paint chips add to the well-"used" look.

Damn...I just checked out the camouflage "duracoat" patterns, and they cost like almost $100.00. Sheeeit! Get some krylon homie!

yeah go with krylon, duracoat is so expensive to send your gun in for! krylon is much cheaper, plus its just more fun doing it yourself cuz then your like, hey man, i did that on my own... man... i rock! Im going to do it to my barrel too with the M16 shroud. its gonna be lossa fun!

02-02-2008, 10:28 PM
im thinkin of using krylon for my mr2 as well as my tippy sl68II, but im afraid of it not stickin' well, would you say it would be worth it on an aluminum body such as the sl68II?

if you guys do decide to do a rattle-can paintjob, i would suggest doing a light sanding so the paint will stick better...
