Here is the not so fine
- Fiberglass & Wood:
Filled, Sanded, Painted, Clear Coated
- It is best to have the stock
bedded before sending it to me. On a glue in, do the bedding then send it
for paint. Then glue in after painting. The risk is getting bedding compound
on the paint.
- I don't do air brushing, or
graphic layouts beyond the basic stripes, lettering etc. I can cut vinyl
masks to do lettering.
- Marble finishes without
candy coats available in Silver/White, Gold/Blue, Blue/Pink, Green/Blue,
Red/Red, Lilac/White (Over Black Base/Over White Base). Other colors
available by using candy coats. Candy coats are $25 per color. Most dramatic
marbles occur over dark bases. White base coats just don't show up very well
and I recommend using black.
- Unless otherwise noted
prices include normal prep work on bare base, no paint or varnish. Parting
lines, pinholes, etc. will be filled and sanded. If your stock requires work
other than this I will contact you before work is started.
- Price Adders:
- Strip old Varnish
from wood $35
- Strip old Paint
from wood or fiberglass $35
- Fill Checkering $25
- Usually a maximum of a two
week turn around after I receive the stock. This will change with how many I
have to do. Marble or solids colors are the quickest.
- Due to the nature of custom
painting, all stocks will be different. Patterns and colors will vary and be
one of a kind. Pictures shown on these pages are for reference only.
- Paint will add anywhere from
0.5 to ? ounces
of weight. The more graphics and colors will add even more. Keep this in
mind if you are really close on weight. A "normal" single color
candy job is just at 1 ounce.
- Bedding, Trigger Guard,
Accessory Rail, etc. recesses will be masked off.
- Paint will add up to
.020" thickness . Keep this in mind for bolt handle clearance, barrel
clearance, forearm width etc.
