Picked up a few PSA Lowers from a Calguns Group Buy a few weeks ago, and decided to do a D.I.Y. color fill on one.

I just used white nail polish I picked up at Target, along with nail polish remover. I was amazed how easy this was to do. :D

Then I figured I'd hit up my CMMG 22 Lower.

Nail Polish belongs on nails. Maybe its just me, but i don't get the whole 'color fill' thing.

To each their own. Not a fan of the color fill thing on guns, BUT since you're doing it, I might as well give some advice. Clean that sucker up with some acetone, homz. Should have done that before it dried because you might have to use some elbow grease now.
I used to repair/restore golf clubs for a living, and to do this exact job we would just spray enamel on with an airbrush then wipe it clean with a chem towel dipped in acetone.

That's not the final product, I cleaned it all up. Just thought Id share.

It's all good, I figured I'd give it a try and see how it turned out.

EDIT: The lower and DROS came out to $80 out the door, no biggie.

Wouldn't do it myself, but wouldn't blast on someone who did. If that's what you like great! BtW, why would you even look at the thread anyways, it's title is clearly marked.

Cool! Now do like I do, go outside the job trailor, grab an apprentice and rip his a*s. You'll feel much better I swear.

well i do get the colorfill thing, its about adding contrast and detail to something that is drab and all one color or shade.makes it look more tricked out,as long as you dont go overboard with it.its just like how a nice wood stock makes a bolt or lever action look sweet. i think your rifle lower looks nice. some guys just want performance out of there stick, others like me want performance and good looks . its all just personal pref. nice work on the colorfill man. ;-)
