Can't do it. Impossible to paint a Tippmann. They are paint resistent like T-Fal frying pans.

Oh, you probably wanted a serious answer? Okay....

Yeah you can paint them. I suggest taping the internals first to keep out as much overspray as possible. Regular masking tape works. Get the 2" wide painters tape, leaves no residue and wide enough to cover most all inside with only 1 strip.

If you can take a wire wheel to the exterior first. Remove the old powdercoat. Then primer it. If you can't do that (no wire wheel) then take some sandpaper and only rough up the black of the stock job. It'll make your own primer just like that.

Then proceed to paint as wanted. What design do you want done? Single, fade, camo, digital... what?

Meph I thought you were serious for a minute

Yes, Raleigh I expect to see pics of the fruit of my genius thought train.

Anywho... I've painted Tippmanns before. Here's how I did it:

1. Completely disassemble your gun.
2. Sand off the stock coat.
3. Tape any holes, cocking rod hole, screws, etc.
4. Put on a couple of coats of a good primer.
5. Let the primer dry for the time that is instructed.
6. Apply the new paint in several layers.
7. Let the paint dry. This can be sped up if you put the halves in the oven at 150 degrees or less for a while.
8. Reassemble.

There ya go, it worked fine for me, but I didn't do the oven thing, although I know people that have and it worked fine. Hope this helps!

for more info check the ultimate sticky, there's a thread in there about this. you also wanna be sure to use rustoleum based spraypaint. it worked wonders for my A-5 last year and i had a pretty sharp lookin red to purple fade. there is also no need to sand off the stock coat if you dont want to. just make sure none gets in your internals because that = a pain to sand away and ruins your nice sandpaper.

And check out my thread in the Custom Mods forum. Govinda gave some pretty helpful advice in there.

Yeah I painted my 98 when seal was over at my house and the paint is way more durable now. what we did is used backhoe touch up spray paint but the one thing that is very crucial to your paint job is to let it dry for as long as needed.
