First off, I am glad to be a new poster on the board.

SO... I am going to paint my bushy patrolmans carbine. I read on another board that rustoleum was a good way to go, however I have to admit that I am a bit nervous about in that it seems to be pretty permanent. Also, reading the can it states that it contains acetone. Acetone is bad for plastic as I recall.

Is Bowflage the preffered way to go?

If I use rustoleum should I prime the plastic parts with plastic primer?

If I ever wanted to take the rustoleum off what would I use?

Anyway thanks for the help.

Bowflage is what most people here use. It can be removed with brake cleaner. Hope this helps.

Bowflage all the way! I always thought anyone who recommended Kyrlon or Ruseoleum was joking.

Krylon. Why would you ever want to take it off? If you change AO you just paint over it. Its a tool, quit babying it.

In rusto\krylon the level of acetone is not high enough to do damage, but, plastic primer would not hurt just an aditional step. Just make sure you are using enamel not latex and give the finish one week to cure.

I used rustoleum flat black to touch up a tiny ding once way back when.......it came right off with CLP so I don't know how it will hold up. It was the enamel!
