Custom finishing

I just got a kimber target stainless II. I really wanted the Eclipse look ( but trying to find a 199 in 9mm anyplace was nearly imposable. As soon as I saw one I dumped down a deposit. Anyway I would like to color it in some similar fashion. I have a machine shop, so virtually all tools are at my disposal 24/7. Another board has mentioned cerakote. I like the looks and it seems like thats what is being used on the kimber to begin with. What is the aplication process, is it a 2 part sprayed on finish? Can I coat the gibbs (interlaocking section of slide and base) with it? I would tend to think it has to be masked off. Anybody have some pics of there job?

CeraKote wll work, I prefer GunKote, more forgiving at less than 1/4 the cost. Yes, mask off the dove tail.

But what do I know?
