Thanks Samtech, I'll look into the Cerakote, the finish looks good to me. I don't think I've ever heard of it and don't know if I can get it locally. As long as the smell goes away once cured, that won't bother me. That reminds me of a friend I have who refinishes furniture, that when referring to urethane and water based finishes he feels that "If it doesn't stink, I don't trust it !!" So, I'm guessing that if it really stinks that bad, It must be good stuff!
