Thinnest spray on coating

Good afternoon all. I am looking for the thinnest spray on coating for my SA GI. I want it to look in the metal rather than on...and I'm willing to sacrifice durability a little since this gun will never see a holster or anything other than a pistol rug at the range.

I am thinking Brownells Baking Lacquer so far.

You won't get it with the lacquer. You get this.
Grip. Stance. Hold. Sight Alignment. Trigger control, squeeze/press.

Cerakote can be put on pretty thin I believe.
Two types of people in this world,
those that talk about doing it and the ones who just do it. Are you the former or the latter?

Gun Kote is incredibly thin. You can even spray it on frame rails.

The Brownells baking lacquer is fine for some applications, but is one of the thicker coatings....not what you want.

Either Cerakote or GunKote can be applied very thin.
