The actual, legit 100mph tape is called "Polyken 231." Easily found with google foo.
Is that also referred to as “Chopper Tape”?

As I retro collector I avoid Cerakote. I tried a bunch of combos but it just just doesn't look correct on retro ARs. I personally use Norrell's Moly Resin as someone noted above.

Not sure if the camera is picking up the differences but here are two examples.

For early stuff like this Colt 601 I used flat gray.

For this M16A1 I used grayish-black, it has a factory Colt upper, but it is one of the darkest factory uppers I own. If you want it a little darker you can mix a little matte black with grayish-black.

It goes on super light with an airbrush you can pickup at any hobby shop. The heat cured version will need to go in the oven.

Looking forward to the finished pictures.
