Furniture in a Crimson

Everything else factory finishes..

Should end up looking something like this...

Search for a huge thread on arfcom about rit dying magpul parts. That may be a better/cheaper solution than getting them coated. Go through the whole thread and see what dyes people have used in combination of FDE or FG magpul parts. Rit DIY is about $3 a package at Walmart BTW.

I've seen the Rit threads on arf, and there is a particular shade of red that's close to what I'm thinking of, here:

Second red from the left on the XTM panels. Unfortunately I never did see a recipes for stuff in that photo.

Here are some other ideas I've been kicking around..

I'm still undecided.. that's basically the color palette that appeals to me.. but not sure which one I like best.

I'm not very artistic, so I'm not really sure if any of those would be considered an eyesore.. heh.

I like it, however when you take it out you will draw a lot of attantion to yourself.
Maybe that is what you like is the attention, which I'm not knocking. Im a low key kind of person and Prefer not to draw attention to myself.
THat does look awesome though.
I say go for it.

I don't really like it, but I don't really like too much color in my firearms. I prefer more simple colors (Black, FDE, OD is even a stretch for me).

That being said, I don't really care what anyone else shoots unless I'm trying to buy it. I would pay less for a colorful firearm than a plain one. YMMV.

Not my thing. At all.
I'd take my Cerakote money and extrude it in to ammo instead.

I Don't know how resistant cerakote is to stains... i'm still waiting for my swatches to arrive, when they do I'l gunk 'em up good and see if they clean easily w/o staining.. but ya the white on black is pretty snazzy also.
