Lock 'n Load Refinish
Posted 27 February 2006 - 11:43 PM
Here's what it looked like. Lots of scratches, nicks, paint wear. First, I ripped off the old, sticky electrical tape and sanded off the residue.
First, I cleaned it and gave it a new flat-black paint job. This time I used high-heat paint for better results. After it was all done, I sprayed it with semi-gloss clearcoat (something I didn't do before) to protect the finish.
Here's the final result. It probably needs one more coat of the clearcoat, but I think it's okay for now. I like the feeling of the coating better than the rough texture of spraypaint.

I guess it proves you can't please everyone all the time.
Great paintjob but i noticed that there are some cracks on the handle where it is a redish color.
...the other day I stumbled upon my old Lock 'N Load, and I forgot how much I loved it. I made a dedication to fix it up, as it was in pretty bad condition cosmetically.
For a blaster that was in bad shape cosmetically, it looks pretty good to me, considering the challenges of patching up older, worn plastic blasters (as I did to my nephew's Expand-a-Blast, using epoxy and filler for the cracked sections).
Aah. Go shoot that Lock n' Load a bit. You might like the feel of it again.
