    Here is a tip of a life time if you dont already know it. I try and pick a tip from everyone ive ever known and a friend Gumby taught me this one. Each time you use the spray paint and your done hold it upside down and spray for 2 seconds. It will never get clogged and you will always have a like new pattern. It sends the gas only and blows out the paint from the nozzle.

    I wanted to see how he put in the upgrade kit and how it look like, I was excited when it got to the part where he said "I'm now about to put in the upgrade kit" Then it skipped to the finished part, I guess he didn't have permission to show the kit and how to put it in?

    There's a blue spot in the hole underneath the bottom of the handle/butt end. It's original paint that he kept missing. I kept seeing it on the video, it stuck out so much.

    Hey Adam, it appears that you used glossy paint for the black parts (ammo clip especially). As an alternative, I would've used flat black instead, since it would've looked more natural, while the glossy black looks more new. It would've also worked better with the rub n buff.
