    How'd the compressed air can work? Did it spray pretty evenly?

    it worked out pretty well, I would have bought four or five cans of it, i had to break down and buy one of those 1gallon air compressors to finish the job

    the air can lasted longer and more evenly when i sat the bottom of the can in water, it makes the shit inside the can boil but maintains constant pressure until its empty

    kit comes with some wicked laser cut vinyl templates, it is a total whore to do...but results are worth it, if you mess up it is easy to go back and touch up, most difficult part of touching up is changing colors out in the spray gun

    Looks pretty badass man, I was going to do this to my .177 air rifle but I got lazy. I was making all the templates by hand with a roll of blue tape and an exacto knife though :o

    You should write an EDU.

    i'm going to do my mossberg 500 and my spotting scope next, so i will take detailed pics

    it is more to it than just sticking shit on, you have to understand camoflage theory and breaking up hardlines, etc
