Backstory first...

Picked up a 1997 Dodge CHEAP two or so years back... Cummins 12 valve...

She was rust free and solid, but ugly... The bed was especially bad...



Had a tube of 3M 5200 open one day (...on another project) and tried something...



Looked WAY BETTER than before... so I tried some more...



Kept going...



The final finish is TOUGH... i.e. "throw a rock" at the truck TOUGH.

Then Grammy clipped a tree with her Deere and shattered the hood... tried another experiment (no UN-stippling this time... just straight build-up) results are SOLID AS A ROCK...



Then I tried on a POS stock off of a CZ550... grip was TERRIBLE before I tried so nothing to lose... came out well. Final pics later (camo).

Just tried the same on a STIPPLED GLOCK lower (G21-3-SF) that I picked up SUPER cheap...

Before...

SUPER GRIP FINISH



and



This is one of my Rowlands (i.e. Comp on the front of the barrel)... The sheen will dull down with use.

Also tried on a bunch of other stocks... they came out well... so tried it on a Stocky's puke green blem last night.





The finish stock will also be camo (more on that later if anyone is interested).

This technique is NOT for a beautiful Mark V, but a solution for guns that hunt/work hard. The texture and grip are very positive to hold. The durability is unprecedented.

Okay I thought that stuff was white as I've helped use it around the windows of a friends boat in Florida? Also how did it come out looking like LineX on the truck, yet then on the hood of the tractor it looks smooth?

Comes in 4 colors... white, black, tan and mahogany...

It is a marine product designed to seal thru-hull fitting on a boat... I used to build boats... it is without a doubt the toughest and strongest "caulk" on the planet.

The rough finish happens with 5200 or 3M 540 or 3M 550 by "pulling" it with your finger tips while it is wet. i.e. stick your finger in it and lift straight back and you get a moon crater type appearance.

It is a hell of a mess to work with, but is wears like iron.

Cash is definitely onto something here. You could probably coat your hand in grease and still maintain a positive grip on whatever is covered in that stuff. I would describe it as soft and yielding like a Nerf ball but strong like a gorilla . Keep up the good work Leonard .

Fixing Grammy's mower deck also...



Making a quasi "plywood type" sheet metal sandwich.

I'll weld some to the new metal.

5200 is 1,000 PSI grip/weld strength...

Sheet metal layers front and back.

New deck from the dealer was $1,800... Used decks (54") are VERY HARD TO FIND).

5200 is about $18 a tube...

540 and 550 (similar product, but not the same) is around $8.

Doing my Dodge 3500 was under $250 in materials, but the labor is VERY SLOW... took me a solid week and the process is a royal PITA.
