    Tikka T3 Stock Paint job

    Did this over a week.
    Came up pretty well.
    Will see how it lasts with a bit of abuse.

    Very nice. I found the whole exercise a very satisfying experience when I did my first one and the finish has been surprisingly robust. Great job.

    Thanks Mate.
    The moment you peel the painters tape off and see the clean lines was certainly a satisfying moment.
    Waiting for the coats to dry sufficiently took some serious self control.

    What product have you used for the fleck effect?
    Looks real good.

    @Moutere Duramax Granite effect

    Entire Process:

    -Light sand 240grit
    -Wipe down with isopropyl (wore gloves from this point on)
    -Taped all the inletting, stud holes etc.
    -3 coats of grey
    -1 coat of duramax granite effect
    -Leave for 7 days to gas out
    -3 coats of matte topcoat

    The reviews of the duramax were shit, but I think people don’t follow the directions accurately and don’t use an appropriate topcoat.
    It leaves a really nice gritty/grippy effect. The duramax also doesn’t spit out any colour. Just the black and white fleck. So what ever base coat you use will be the colour that comes through.

    If you don’t want the fleck effect but just the grippy raised spots, doing the duramax first then your base colour over top would be very effective too.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Thank you, I was very close to going with a brown/green. But I feel like those colours are getting pretty common.

    Great info, thanks for that. I spent ages looking for something to add some texture to mine, from nonskid grit for boats to truck bed liner. Never though about using this underneath a colored top coat. I ended up using a ripped up sponge and dabbing at the last base coat, same with the first clear coat, then a couple more unmolested clears over that. Turned out ok.

    Yea it’s an important step. The duramax product I used said specifically to use some.
    And from what I’ve read the flecks don’t like the water much. The other important factor was time, allowing enough time for things to cure.

    I don’t enjoy following rules at the best of times. But when chemical reactions are in play ie. painting, epoxy, baking, concrete… it’s pretty important to follow the rules.

    Update: I went into the bush for three days.
    Bush bashed pretty hard. Stock got wet & very cold. Paint job held up really well, with no signs of wear.
    Didn’t help shoot a sika though, so there is that….

    I didn’t look into this product at all, but it was the only matte clear I could find in Taupo.
    I was pretty liberal with the application as it sprayed pretty thin.

    I used the same granite effect paint on my stock. Went overboard on the granite effect for more texture then top coat painted over the granite effect followed by a light granite effect for looks and finally several top coats to seal it over. Seems to be lasting well so far.
