YOUR A TOWEL
I have a couple of question to ask. I'm looking to repaint (rattle can) my tail section how do i go about doing that? i looked and can't find anything on. :wtf:
wash your tail section good. get off all the bugs and grime. then sand with a 800 ? you dont want to break the factory paint but you want to break the clear coat. sand till it gets dull looking you dont have to go far. then wash again use water and a mild detergent. like dawn dish soap. then lay either your primer or paint and primer paint like krylon. either way lay a coat till its slighty glossy, dont over due it or you cance runs. let it sit 15 or 20 minutes till the glossy dies out and its becomes dullish, then lay another. due this 5 or 6 times. then let it sit for a good while i let it dry in the garage overnight. then take a 1500 wet sand paper and dip the paper and very lighty sand just enough to clean the top coat and remove any dirt and nibs that set in. then wash with soap and water again. i then use a tac rag which is a cloth that is very sticky and porous and it collects dirt. then i lay another 5 or 6. then do the dry overnight and wetsand,clean,tac rag and then clear coat. use as many clear coats as you want just wetsand and clean every 2 or 3. you wetsand so often so when you get done and wash it you dont pull off a piece of dirt that was in the first coat and then your stuck redoing it or using crappy touch up paint that isnt even goin to think about matching your paint. thats how i paint.
Krylon Fusion sucks. Trust me.
I used it on my whole bike, turned out pretty decent for a $12 paint job. Beats the hell out of the .96 walmart house brand.whats wrong with it? ... I haven't actually tried it yet
