View Full Version : Final coat for painted stock?
Salvaged a crappy Izzy LB for a "Black Widow" congo project. Sanded stock and sealed cracks. Painted with flat black paint and steel wooled. Now what should I use as a sealer or final coat?

At least 1, if not 2, coats of semi-matte polyurethane. Make sure and
check the label to make sure it's compatible with the paint you used...
it should be.
Or, spray it with Dupli-Color Bed Liner Coating(for pickup beds) from the auto store, which will give you a matte non-slip rubbery finish.
Whether Poly or Bed Liner practice on scrap wood to see what distance is best(usually about 18"-24").
Don't know if this makes a difference, but the stock is wood.

Doesn't matter. Painting a wood stock
is akin to making it into a plastic one for these two finishes.
Just experiment on scrap wood with whatever you decide to use, as spraying too close with Poly will not only cause runs but the excess Poly
negates the semi-matte, as it'll look
as shiny as gloss Poly. The Bed Liner
roughness(tiny bits of rubber) varies by distance too.
