So my frame is black which i love but scratched up all over 1388338440567.jpg

and i dont want to pull my bike apart to get it powdercoated this season so i got some rattle cans that leave a pretty good finish 1388338222510.jpg

Started with just the back of the subframe to see how it looks 1388338317538.jpg

Its a little lighter than i thought but i like it a lot so far. Time to tape up the rest of the bike for paint 1388338373694.jpg

I did the same thing to my yzf750r to lazy to drop the motor just covered everything and painted it. Im thinking of using the same paint on my bike keep us updated on how it holds up. Are you clear coating it?

Just finished covering everything up for paint. Just gota prep it real quick and time to paint 1388367190592.jpg 1388367202525.jpg

And i have to drop the motor in the summer anyway since one of my engine bolts doesnt line up from frame to engine so this is just a temp job. I dont think im gona clear coat it. Ive used the paint before (not on a bike or outdoors) and the paint seems pretty durable for a spray can

Just got the first coat kind of hard to see in the pictures but it looks awesome. Has metallic bits in it 1388370235887.jpg 1388370243034.jpg

Finished up for the night. 3 coats on it and letting it sit and dry for the night then pull off the paper and see how it looks. Hoping for the best since what i can see looks pretty good 1388381482453.jpg

From what I can see it looks real good. You can do a pretty good job with a rattle can if you prep right and take your time. Just be careful, most are not real resistant to gas or other chemicals.

I know it sounds dumb but I first used this paint in my bathroom on door knobs and the sink and its pretty durable. It almost seems like its clear coated (Granted its just in a bathroom) but no stains from anything, wipes right off without any paint damage and cleaning products dont effect it at all. If your looking for a quick easy and pretty durable rattle job I would definitely recommend this so far (Thats without any outdoor exposure with it yet)
