Anybody Try Dura Coat
« on: May 29, 2013, 10:28:53 AM »
Hi

I have seen Dura Coat ads for many years in Gun Magazines but
I never thought of using it on a phone.  It sounds doable.
Well there is one on Ebay.

I'm a little averse to painting vintage phones, mostly due to the tedious prep and procedures and also because I have very limited space to work in, but the DuraCoat looks promising.  I like the fact that it comes in single-use, all-inclusive kits.  I also like his choice of the semi-gloss finish for black, always my favorite.  It says only the metal parts were treated, I wonder what he did to the handset to get it as nice looking.

The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.
