I'm pretty happy with the way my BUIS turned out, but i'm not sure what to use to cover the bare metal. i don't know how to use blueing, so i thought about just using flat black spray paint. is this ok? or should i go buy some blueing and learn how to do it?

thanks in advance!

In addition to BC Alumninum Black, Brownell's flat black Alumahyde II also works very well.

1200 degree engine paint from WALMART, degrease the shit out of what ever you apply it to, paint, bake at 550 for three hours.

You cannot use bluing on aluminum. You anodize aluminum. It's very different. It can be done at home but why bother? The BUIS doesn't see the kind of wear necessary to justify it.

I vote for spray paint or some other spray-on surface coating.

+1

Although anodizing at home can be an interesting endeavour
