It looks really well done, nice work. I'm the opposite, I prefer my guns to have no visible markings.

I like the look of olive drab color fill on an AR-15.

I'm all for pimping out the "ride". Clearly with that pink body she wasn't going for subdued anyway. Looks good- keep it up.

http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/xd-guns...-write-up.html

its a long thread but there is so much instruction on there that there i no way i could tell you what is going to work the best for you.

You know, my fiancé had done that to a couple of his pistols and was showing them to me last month sometime. Ironically enough, I couldn't appreciate how nice the red color looked against the black gun initially because I was too busy standing there looking at him thinking WTH was he doing with red nail polish in the first place??? lol Was kind of hard getting that mental picture out of my head for a few... <smh>

Filled in the lettering on my glock in with white crayon wax! So far its pretty durable! Turns out white crayons aren't totally worthless...

Nice paint job. I won't do that with mine just in case the need comes up to sell them. There is a local guy trying to sell an XD on Armslist. His price is fair but he did the same thing and is having a hard time selling it. Plus I don't have the eye-hand coordination to make it look that good lol.
