Yes it is a 98 ustom, but its not mine! My friend an I decided he needed to clean his gun, which hadn't been touched with any cleaning item in the history of its life, it was also disgusting on the outside, we striped it down (the first time that had ever happened) and it was awful, filled with paint and dirt... So then my friend got the Idea to reapint it black, and then decided, why not camo? So anyways, we picked up some "camo" spray paint that they had at the local hardware store, and followed Otter's directions on painting... kindof anyways,,,

Anywho, I think it came out pretty good: pics look weird thoguh in this light.

Basically, we stripped the gun apart cleaned it out, then we ligtly sanded it down with 320 grit sandpaper (what we had...) and then sprayed on 3 light coats of plastic model primer (its all we had...), lightly sanded again between each coat, after that we went down to the local hardware store, they happened to have these spray paint can's that were supposed to be camo colors, they also were matte finish and supposed to not need a clear coat finisher, we hung the flatline up from a beam in his garage, and just lay the sides of the body flat and just sprayed on paint, not heavily mind you, just light coats.

It was pretty easy, and because al the spraypaint we had was quick drying, we did it all in ~3 hours including waiting.

Dude, those camo colours arent so bad but one of the most annoying upgrades in paintball I think is the 98 custom FLATLINE!!!!
bar none..:mad:
