Default Just coated slide with ceramic engine enamel!!

For $10 at most auto parts stores you can buy ceramic engine paint so i asked " whats the differance?" So i bought a can of low gloss black to do my MPDE coated 19's slide black. Well after prepping and coating it looks awesome already. And it took less than an hour to do and very inexpensive. I will later describe the durability of it since its still curing, but the finish looks awesome imho. Leave comments below with questions if any!ImageUploadedByGlock Forum1479827351.943391.jpg first pic is day one, second is just finishing coatingImageUploadedByGlock Forum1479827412.217742.jpgImageUploadedByGlock Forum1479827431.099419.jpg

It will eventually (like anything else) get worn through BUT it might look cool since it will have the original color coming through.

I personally think the paint will be way more prone to wear than any factory coating.


Post pics when it's assembled.

Well, anyone can spray on a finish. This is a one of a kind custom 'Fire Finish' Process: loan gun to friend, put gun in trunk, get rear ended, burn car to ground. Take gun apart, set in baking soda for a month, clean with white vinegar, replace all springs and plastic parts, function fire, retire to safe.

Nice job !

Great idea and it will probably hold up pretty well . I'm guessing it's high temp and has great wear reststance just due to the fact it was for an engine ?

Very cool and it looks really good !
