    Default DIY Painters! Fall in!



    Dear all

    Was recently on a high temptation to do a spray can paint job on a minimalist budget on a unimportant part of my bike -> my mudguard.

    Followed the tutorial here.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MsVW...eature=related

    Hope painters can share the how to's, tips and where to get em.

    I'm lazy, cheap and impatient. I wanted to keep things simple and my expectations wasnt that all too high.
    Ended up really happy with how it turned out. Yeah some uneven spots here and there and oversanding on edges and some parts. hahaha

    Wait for the updates!

    Lessons learned.

    #1 If your are stripping paint and primer etc, can start with a much much coarser sandpaper!
    #2 First layer at 30% coverage. Second layer at 100% coverage for me . Minimal time between coats.
    #3 Will try sanding to a 1000 and another coat of clear the next time around.

    isnt much that can go wrong if you follow the steps. Sanding helps you rid of your screwed up works like drips etc. hehehe

    hi guys. I was curious if rustoleum clear coat is fuel corrosion proof?

    other than the urethane compound spray can, is there any alternatives?

    Most importantly, u dun want too big wind when you do your spray work. Do it in a semi enclosed area.
