    Looks good KPB. ARD devices are sold or in a tight spot take a peice of Gorilla tape,cut a rectangle in the middle and stick it to the obj. Should work in all but low light conditions. Very nicely done.

    I looked at a few ARD online and I do have a 3" sun shade. So I'll probably paint that up and it should help.

    Thanks Capo. It's really not to hard just a bit time consuming.

    As far as supplies this is what I used:
    Krylon Camo Green
    Krylon Camo Black
    Krylon Camo Tan
    Krylon Ultra Flat Clear
    A roll on contact paper
    Xacto knife
    Graph paper
    Blue painters tape

    I took everything apart and cleaned it to remove and dirt, grease, or oil. Then taped everything I didn't want painted (trigger assembly, inside of the receiver, scope lenses, ect). After that was all done I sprayed base coat. I left mine the original color of the stock.

    After the base coat dries it's time to get creative. I started cutting out patterns from the graph paper and laying them over the stock. I continued this until I was happy with the design. Remember this will cover the base coat and is what will be seen after the other two colors are applied.

    After I was happy with the first set of templates I cut two pieces of contact paper that were slightly larger then the graph paper. I put the contact paper back to back (this allows you to cut once and have a template for the right and one for the left) and taped it together with a piece of graph paper on top. Once everything was taped together I traced out the template on the graph paper and cut them out using the xacto and a straight edge.

    After getting all the templates cut out apply them to the stock and spray the next color. For me it was tan.

    Once that dried I repeated the above to create and apply templates to the areas I wanted to leave tan. Once the templates were on I sprayed the last color green.

    After I applied the last color and it dried I removed all the templates. At this point I create female templates and add some random color to blend everything together. I think this takes the most time.

    Once I was happy with the design I sprayed it with the Ultra Flat Clear.

    Now you just have to repeat the process for the barrel (if removed), scope, ect. It help if you put the parts back together as you're creating the templates. This helps keep the pattern flowing from stock to the barrel to the optics.

    Wish I had taken pictures of the process but I hope this help explain it some what. Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions. Oh and there are some companies that sell ready cut templates that would save you time. I think most sell for around $20. I went with the graph paper because I had a design/look I was going for and didnít think I could get it using the pre cut stuff.
