Ion Cosmetic Customization Questions

Hey All,

So I'm in the process of "pimpin' out" my marker and was looking for some help.

I've already used some Tal-Strip (Aircraft Paint Stripper) on Stock Frame to get down to the bare metal. Will be powder coating soon.
I've cut off the webbing, sanded down and made some style cuts into the Stock Body. Will be bondoing and painting soon.

My questions are;

Is it safe to alter the Stock Breech and Firing can? I'd like to re-color them somehow. Can I strip the existing Anno off and get it redone? Would I strip breech inside and out?

Where are the questions?
Edit: good lad.

1. Bondo, or equivalent, they're all identical (polyester resin mixed with a catalyst to harden).
2. It's possible, just don't alter them internally.

Many have done all these cosmetic mods. Check the stickies. Most important tip is take your time, do it right.

Don't strip inside the breech. But you can strip outside the breech just fine.

When you slide the can and breach in and out of the body, it will most likely mess up your expensive anno job over time. Just food for your thought.
