The Some Folks Have All The Luck Affair

Call me a glutton for punishment—or even a perfectionist. So far, my efforts to successfully apply Allumahyde II to Paul and Eric's contemporary U.N.C.L.E. Carbine barrel has proved quite a challenge. With the help of my co-worker John, I'm currently researching various paint manufacturers in the hope of finding a primer that will adhere to both aluminum and titanium.

In the meantime, while I've been choking paint fumes and setting records by seeing just how many times I can paint and then strip the same parts, it's nice to see Paul and Eric hard at work testing their invention—as their latest YouTube video clearly demonstrates.

Enjoy!
