              LOOKS GREAT!!!! How long after anodizing does it take to finish the part(mask,dye,seal)?

                  about 30 minutes for most of my bodies. (one took 2 hours but it was kind of an experiment)

                        I used maskit the other day for a paintball marker and I was sitting there for 2 h peeling the darn stuff off with a dental pic. Did the rubber cement easily peel off?

                          no, what I did was seal it once, then use paint thinner to get rubber cement off (very sticky once its been heated by the way) and then resealed once I had removed the rubber cement

                            The thicker your second coat, the easier it is to remove - I just have to scratch an edge with my fingernail and then it comes right up.

                              How do you, personally, apply the rubber cement? Paint on w/ brush... or just throw it on there...and how thick does the rubber cement coat need to be?
