    I'm getting ready to revamp my '94 MIM pbass. Going to paint it Atomic Orange, install EMG-x pickups and going with a black pickguard. I could easily just sell the loaded pickguard or save for a project bass and buy a black pg but im also getting ready to duracoat a pair of 1911 pistols. Duracoat is tough stuff and sticks to plastic. I was just wondering if anyone has tried it before.

    The guns have a parkerized finish that im not fond of. It serves its purpose but its kinda ugly. I was wanting to duracoat them because park...is a good base for duracoat, cerakote, etc

    Duracoat is a gritty, aggressive surface - tough to be sure. Tougher than the skin on your knuckles. Buy a black guard.

    Good point. I was just thinking if I had some left over, I'd give it a try but I think I'll just buy a black pg.
