Duracoat (Durabake in parkerize finish)

And here is one more interesting post from J.R.:

I added a few new parts and upgrades and Duracoated my 870. The Duracoat product is affordable and easy to use. I chose to use the Durabake in parkerize finish. I spent about an hour prepping and spraying then baked for 3 hours at 180 degrees fahrenheit. The finished product looks great, I will send an update after my 870 is back in one piece.

    Hello Vitaly,

    All thanks are due to you and your great idea for Rem870.com.

    Just wanted to update the project. I discovered the best way to Duraoat/Durabake is to sand everything with 150 sand paper then clean all parts with a non residual cleaner like brake clean. Put all parts in the oven for 20 minutes at 180 degrees Fahrenheit to heat the metal before paint. Apply several thin coats until all metal is covered and then bake for three hours at 180. remove from oven and inspect for missed spots and touch up if necessary then bake again for one hour at 350 and this will give you a very tough and solid finish.

    Take care, J.R.
