Looks good. I should be posting my rattle can job this weekend.

The orange peel provides better aerodynamics.....like a golf ball's dimples

Looks okay for a spray bomb, but if you plan on painting with a "automotive" type paint later on, they rattle can crap will be a pita to get off...

Otherwise

Did you go with a flat black and then try and clear it? Looks kind of milky.....but it is a race bike, not in to win a bike show
That's what it looks like in the pictures, but could be wrong......

no, gloss black and then cleared.

i used a triple thick glaze clear which is pretty glossy but the flash on the camera reflected a lot in the pics. looks better in person.

It'll be great after it dries... sometime in 2006


Screw it - rattle-canned battle-axes intimidate the competition! Pretty bikes are for posers


If this doesn't work out wear-wise, and you ever have to rattle-can again, try Krylon Ultra-Flat. It's the only spray-paint I've used that actually holds up (somewhat) to abuse. It dries QUICK. And it gives you that rough cat-tongue like texture that the girlies just love

I used the Krylon Fusion stuff. Its designed for plastics and dries really fast.

Oh - that's cool. I've been wanting to try that! I'm interested to hear how it holds up



(damn I feel white trash... I'm all excited about trying out a new type of spray paint)

Just for the record, I have a good proper paint gun, as well as a ventilated and filtered booth to do work.

I just didn't want to spend $150+ on paint, clear, reducer, hardener, etc. Just not justifyable for only one bike. For $50 more I could have someone else do it and save me the time.

$20 in rattle cans I could justify, after all, I already had two sets of bodywork painted before Daytona--can't swing a third.
