I'm thinking of having a guy here hydro graphic the yellow plastics. Haven't decided on a design yet but was wondering if anyone else has tried this yet?
It is stronger than paint. This is something that I have been looking into. There are two guys at my wifes work (Sheriffs department) That have been doing smaller items like guns stocks and things of that size. They have recently upgraded their equipment and are expanding their abilities! Definately a good way to go as far as strength and ability to withstand some abuse..It gets an automotive style clear on top. I've heard it is just as strong if not stronger.
i was talking to a guy who painted his commander. he said they had to take a torch and heat up the plastics to bring the mold release agent out before painting it.I was going to get mine done but have heard that the plastics on the Maverick have some sort of a chemical in them that is making the Hydrodip peel on the edges after wahile... My friend just got his done so I am gunna see how good his holds up before I decide to do it. Also I know another guy that got his done and he said the shop that did it heated all of his plastics up before they dipped it which supposedly burns the chemical agent out of them. He said after the heated them up the platsics no longer had the gloss on them and were dull and then prepped them for the dipping. Im no expert on any of this just saying what Ive heard so far.
