Just a quick update for those of you following the T-Rex build. She has been busy getting shined up for her big trip to SHOT Show 2019! Some final upgrades have been added over the last few months including a larger exhaust, rebuilt carburetors, and the addition of NITRO! We have also been busy adding last minute touches such as logos, bullets, and one more gun because, you know, why not. What is that new gun you ask? Well, a bright, shiny gold AK of course! This AK was done in our DuraChrome Gold which is being released for 2019. It really looks like gold-plating but you can easily do it at home for a fraction of the cost.
For those of you curious, yes the logos were applied with DuraCoat and yes they were applied over a year after the doors were coated. I know right. How can that be? Will the logos stick? Of course! And no, we did not sand all the little nooks and crannies. We used NoSand Prep Solution. All we did was apply the stencils, spray NoSand, then coat. No problems with adhesion.
If you are lucky enough to be going to SHOT Show 2019, look for the T-Rex in the main lobby. She'll be on full display and make sure to get there early to nab your Limited Edition T-Rex decal and a commemorative SHOT 2019 T-Rex mini poster!
