    QUESTION: PAINTING HYPERFIRM

    hey guys, have a hyperfirm blaster i am needing to paint...will the surface pretty much take any paint i use on it? or is there a specific type of paint i should use? or, is there a paint i shouldnt use? was wanting to use Rustoleum spray paint, just want to make sure of anyone else's experience with hyperfirm surfaces before i go for it... thanks!

    also, will a 2 part epoxy/hardener filler work with hyperfirm?

    I always used Krylon Semi-Flat black.
    Just make sure to wipe the whole blaster down with alcohol first, it'll help.

    what are you using the filler for?

    Re: QUESTION: PAINTING HYPERFIRM

    i am redoing the barrel mounts with stormrider's...i like them better...so when i took off the original mounts, i sanded down the glue that was left over, and there are a few notches in the surface...there is also a seam from the mold i was wanting to remove, so i thought some filler might smooth the barrel out...

    i was thinking Krylon as well...do you use the Fusion by Krylon? thanks for the help, brother...

    nevr used the Fusion
    I also used old school Krylon before they changed to garbage.
    gonna be tough to fill seems and stuff since the hyper-firm was some flexibility.
