are you refinishing an already anodized lower or a raw lower?

i've worked with durabake which worked pretty well. it doesnt require a curing agent and works right out of a rattle can. if its a raw lower, i would probably looking into getting it anodized by a local metal refinisher.

duracoat my friend. very easy to use.

I had all the tools already though. shop air compressor, airbrush and inline water filter thingie.

Duracoat is very easy to use and you will get great results the first time and every time. remeber every paint job no matter the type all starts with the prep work.

break it down as far as you want to go, degrease, degrease and degrease again, scuff with red scoth brite, wipe with cleaner/tack cloth and spray away.

here is some of mine:
