Default looking for a outfit that does handgun wraps and etc.

A good friend of mine just bought her first handgun a SA XD9. She's looking to get it decorated with a teal slide and sugar skulls on the rest of the gun just like this picture.



Does anyone know of any outfits that can do this. From what she was saying she doesn't have a budget in mind as she has no idea what it would cost.

Any ideas guys

The slide and barrel are cerakote and should cost around $160 to get it done professionally.

The grip looks to be hydrodipped rather than wrapped or sprayed

No clue.. Some specialty car audio places might be familiar with hydrodip ping and may be open to doing firearm parts.. I would call and ask around your area.. Cerakote is pretty easy to find.

Might want to call cerakote places and ask if they know how to hydrodip also

If she's using this gun for defense, consider the possible implications if she shoots someone and then has to defend the skulls in court.

Here's the film in case you want to try it yourself. It doesnt look too hard to do. I might give it a go just for fun.

I don't think that its as easy as putting decals on those Revell model airplanes we built as kids. Sure the film is only $10.00, but then there is Training $500, Chemical Activator $30, Hydrographic Tank $1,415. You could probably use the kitchen sink for the wash and rinse station and save yourself $1,865.

Something tells me this is not a DYI project.

Idk, looks pretty easy. Full kit is only $70 at http://mydipkit.com - I wouldnt start with a film as detailed as the sugar skulls. But it doesnt really look that hard.

Not sure where you are located but there is a member on this forum that has a shop in Buena Park that does hydro dipping.
