Here they are. Thanks folks, for helping me get them posted. I'm a little embarrassed to say that the paint job took me about 40 hours, and still has some blemishes that are driving me nuts. Oh well--It's about 97% better than the old paint.
Yes this is my first attempt at any sort of a paint job. I just read up on the subject beforehand. I used Plasticote paint, and no machines of any kind. Good idea about the chrome decals. Where might I get such things?
lmao what I ment was is that a storage building. like ..the one i am going to keep mine in I gotta pay for cause wher I live motorcycles aren't allowed. in the park. but I gotta pay for a storage space
No I've never been to Betty Ford, although my wife would love it if I did. And Seven, that is the garage that is attached to my apartment. I'm surprised I didn't get shut down when I turned it into a paint shop the last three weekends. It sucks that you have to pay for storage. Better than keeping the bike on the street though. Anyway, thanks for the comments, folks.
Hey Tbrown, you said you used plasikote paint from a can? I tried a simlar paint job years ago and a painter pointed out a hint of brown in the paint. I forgot whcih brand i used, but in fact I could see the brown in the black pigment. It looks like yours is a good deep colored black. I think I might attempt this to redo a fender. Any more details on which paint you used would be appreciated.
I used the black gloss, 1130 or something, and the acrylic clear, 1100 or something. Maybe the numbers are reversed. But at any rate, they are the Plastikote acrylic paints. My only advice is to lay many coats of clear--like 7 or 8--to avoid wearing through the clear during sanding/buffing. I'm far from an expert, but feel free to ask more questions.
