    I blast the parts with 120 grit aluminum oxide. I blast metal at 100 psi and polymers at about 60 psi. Next, I degrease everything very thoroughly. I soak metal in acetone for 25-30 minutes. I soak polymer in denatured alcohol. After the soak, I hang the parts to air dry. Then, I bake the parts at 250 for 20-30 minutes. After they cool, it's time to spray. I don't have the link handy, but cerakote has a great "how to" video on YouTube.

    The cerakote web site has some good instructions on that, the most important I think is baking the parts to get rid of oil and residue missed with the denatured alcohol. Aluminum oxide bead blast to get to "metal" to make priming and painting. Some of their coatings do not require priming which they cover in that colour's technical info.
    At least that is what I did when painting my SAIGA. G8 gave me some good tips before that as well.
