    First you lightly sand down the shell.Then you spray primer all over the gun .Later when the primer is dry you paint over the primer with the colors you want.After that paint is dry you lightly spray a clear coat on it.

    Krylon works well, and can easily be obtained at home depot or lowes.

    Rustoleum works well especially the glossy colors because it is so hard to scatch.

    It's alright. I know you post well enough anyways. To me, "meh" describes the bored/laxed feeling better than an emoticon.

    Rustoleum is common, it can be found quite easily. Very high quality, I would definitely recommend.

    The paint is wrinkling because you are putting on too much paint at a time. Only do small bits at a time.

    Thanks but since I use glossy paint which takes a long time to dry so it will be really hard to do this.
