    Painting a carbon fibre stock

    Hey. Iíve a Stug stock that I like but I donít like the carbon fibre look. Can I paint it. Iím sure I can. Anyone got recommendations on how and with what? I do like the flat stone grey finish on my Forbes. Slightly textured for a bit better grip too.

    Know any car painters? If it's a single colour that would be easy, just get some matting base added to dull the finish. 2 pack sticks like shit.

    Thereís a car painting place in Palmy called Spray Factory that also does hydro dipping. Hes done a few gun stocks. Think he charges about $300 for a stock.

    Got my Tikka done here. Cost $120 a few years ago. It's lasting really well. Still looks like the day it was done.

    Barrel and action are Gunkote in matt black. The rifle is actually stainless. Shouldn't have any corrosion issues.
