    i think better not...cos the paint they use and the paint u use is of different quality ...u never know wat will happen in the future if u use ur own spray paint and paint

    true, laquer and paint my react and will cause undesirable smurges~ i seen this happen already, if u trying to DIY, check to see if both doesn't react first den try~

    Yup, I agree to that totally!
    and i know Ah Huat of Yeow Motors personally. very nice chap, can talk business.
    He understand bikers situations and usually will not chop people, but then again he has to make a living. His prices are a little on the high side, but that comes with hard work and great attention to details. Resullts: Excellent!

    The first time i went to him was to respray my NSR SP after a disfiguring crash 2 years ago, fairings are cracked and all. He did mended the fairings and did a great job of respraying my SP into the Honda Pons MoviStar paintwork.
    The colour, the paints he used are of good quality too, esp those metallic paints, they really glitter in the sunlight. Those who had seen my SP will definitely agree with me. Unlike other paint shops, Ah Huat really knows his colours and how to make those colours come "alive". That bike of mine was really a head turner.
    But that really come with a price. What was quoted to me was $500, but when i paid was for the repairs and stuff that were damaged in the crash so i was not really sure how much was discounted or how much was absorbed. But it was definitely worth it. It made me love my bike even more.
    Too bad I sold it and don't have any existing photos to show you guys.

    So far i brought 2 friends to his shop for resparying.
    a CBR400RR which he did a really spectacular job of spraying the CAMEL Pramac design. that was a classic.
    next was a Super 4 Ver S, whose owner was so impressed with my SP MOviStar that he pestered me to take him to the shop and did his S4 into a MoviStar as well. Although i personally feel that design don't really work out with a naked bike like S4 but he still went ahead and did it. the wrokmanship was there but the design and the bike look a little mismatched but who's complaining? Nevertheless, a job well done that is.

    As these design i just described consists of more than just 2 colours, the prices were a little very steep. As for the CBR it was nearly $500, and S4 i can't really remember but proportionately cheaper. Those who have the dough and are looking for quality work, you won't regret it. But he took quite some time to finish a job, an average of 2 weeks. that's the downside of it.

    In the end of it all, it depends on yourself and whether if your bike worth it or not. If your're changing bikes in the near future and the paint on ur bike now is presentable, just save the money, that is what i will advise.

    Well, that's it.

    By the way, the Camel Pramac CBR has been sold off and I don't have any existing photos of it.
    My other friend is still riding the S4, but he pasted all kinds of sticker on it so it looks a little different at the first glance. I'll check again if I have any photos of that bike.

    Ciao

    Good Luck guys...
    I hope my experiences with this shop helped you in decide in some ways,
    end of it all you won't regret it.

    Don't bother to bargain much with Ah Huat because his prices are quite fixed, he'll give a little discount but don't bargain too much, because it won't have much effect. Just show him your designs or choose one from his photo albums there and ask him for the price. If the price stated is unsuitable, i suggest you choose another design or just walk out.

    I've wasted too much saliva on him so I'm just telling you this.

    Do post the pics of your newly painted bikes here once you have it, so it can help some of the guys here to make a better choice when choosing a shop to do their paintwork.

    See ya!

    Wah Lau...
    exactly the same paintwork as mine&#33;

    but mine is not done by Yeow motor @ AMK
    and you can already see the inferior quality of workmanship. firstly they did not strip the old paint, because when a bit of my paintwork chipped off here and there, you can actually see the old paint inside. and secondly the new paint starts to have little bubbles appearing, especially at the fuel tank. damn lousy man.

    If i ever have the spare cash and time, i will definitely bring it to Yeow motors and let them do up the bike.

    Lacquer can do DIY mahhh...I everything also DIY
    But if you DIY lacquer, make sure u let the new paintwork dry(ard 2 days). Then apply thinly, use several coatings, if you have buffer, whisk it briskly and lightly over the surface to as not to scratch the paint. But don have confidence then cheapest bet to go JB lorr...

    i noe that bike owner..i wonder?since when was somebody quote 1k for that spraywork...unless u assume that it cost 1k..funny...and the owner AIRBRUSH it onto his bike himself last time...

    1) u dont own that bike so u are not the one paying 1k for it.
    2) even if u noe the new owner of the bike,he oso wont noe cos he nv pay for it..

    point noted?

    Ok first, this is just my own review hoping not to offend anyone or any shops in the bike industry. This comments aren&#39;t based on my own imagination but it&#39;s either I have contacts with the shop (Had my bike sprayed there before) or know the person doing the spray painting job personally. Although I might have some conflicts with one or another, I will not be biased with my comments.

    Wow, this is gonna be long so be prepared. Spray painting your bike is not an easy job&#33;

    First, the base colors. The color already on the bike before new paint is sprayed on it, those colors have to be removed (Or not depending on the person doing the job).

    Second, fiber is added on the fairing if they are broken or cracked to repair it. Dents have to be knocked out.

    Third, paint cement is added to the fairings and have to sand to minimise the layers of cement. (Why? If the person had applied a thick layer of cement and not sand it, the fairing which you get back is gonna be heavy. Try picking up an original fairing and a resprayed fairing of the same bike model, the resprayed one should be slightly heavier, if the cement was not sand, it would be even more heavier.)

    Fourth, after all this is done, paint is being sprayed onto the bike. Those bikes with designs and different colors, linings is being paste onto the fairings or tank to "draw" the designs. Alignment is important depending on the owner. (Imagine you have a Honda wing on your oil tank, would u like your wing on the right to match the left in both size and length or you wouldn&#39;t?) Lastly, the paint is left to dry and stickers are pasted, lacquer is applied either twice or thrice. DO NOT BELIVE THAT ADDING MORE LACQUER IS GOOD FOR THE PAINT. Lacquer is added to protect the paint beneath it and adding the showroom shine. Applying more of it will have a side effect depending on the quality of the paint and lacquer used. (the lacquer does make your paint job nice and shiny, but after prolong period of suntanning, it sorts of acts like a magnifying glass focusing the sun&#39;s ray onto your bike making the color of the paint alittle faded as time goes by.)

    So for all this things done, the price may varies. I&#39;m not saying anyone would do this but it&#39;s like, the more you pay the more heart I put in your bike and bcos I&#39;m asking for a higher price, the quality of my paint and lacquer might or might not be better. The less you pay, the more "Ching Chai" I would do your bike. All spray paint shop has to make a living. Some people has less money and wishes to respray so they go for the less pricey ones. Maybe they have damaged their bike and planning to sell it but have to repsray it before selling so they don&#39;t really look into long terms. But I can&#39;t stand those people whinning and complainig to others when the paint job cracks or fade off. Hey, that&#39;s the price you PAID for. Some simply love their bikes and wishes to have the best for it, they spend more money on it and if the "painters" didn&#39;t do a good job for you, just SHOOT them cos you paid MORE. All shops have a reputation to keep and all of them wants to keep it. Good comments travels slow but complaints are faster than a bullet&#33; Know why you need to spray and how long do you want it to last before choosing a shop. Like we all say, Good things not cheap, Cheap things not good but all of us want something good and cheap&#33; So it comes down to the individual.

    Anyway ride safe and have fun&#33;

    PS: Hope I didn&#39;t offend anyone. Dun SHOOT ME.

    emperor...typical singaporeans are like that one lah...you can&#39;t change their mentalilty.....since everything wan cheap...then cheap loh...got cheap ones why not 100plus 200 can get a single color job liao...why cannot?&#33;..then the paint dun last..COMPLAIN loh....then spend again on YET ANOTHER CHEAP paintjob hoping it will last... ..den as usual the amt of PEANUTS you paid showed its quality again...the cyle repeats itself...then you get guys who are willing to spent more...and last them 4 a couple of yrs...........who is getting the better deal?&#33;

    go figure.............

    p.s:then again you need these "monkeys" to keep the paintshops who provide CHEAP paintjobs alive&#33;....long live "MONKEYS&#33;"

    do a cheap paintjob expect it to last 4ever ah?&#33; can find let me know..even the best engine also need to service regularly lah&#33;&#33;&#33; engine will also break down what makes you think paint wun fade and crack?&#33;

    worst some monkeys even try to spray themselves using spraycan?&#33; D.I.Y....does 2K paint rings a bell? spraycan and 2k is like WAY different class....sure it can give you nice color and "gloss"....but touch yr heart and tell my how many jobs like that lasts?............i&#39;ll be frank of so many my friends did...NONE. some tried to be smart&#33;.....THIN layers...of "LACQUER" for serveral coats then WAH shine sial&#33;..after some time....CRACKS ...as wide as an index finger&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;...mrt lines..pie/ecp/aye/tpe all came out&#33;....some ppl say AIYAH CHIN CHYE CAN LIAO LAH....why dun you CHIN CHYE buy a bike then?&#33;?&#33; no offence but personally i think most of the local riders lack PRIDE in their RIDE .....heres a little info to D.I.Y ENTHUSIAIST.................

    so called clear lacquer on the market DOES NOT serve any protection 4 your paint they are SIMPLY clear paint. true LACQUER OR CLEARCOAT professional call it..pre-mixes thinner and hardener b4 spraying.

    juz like mechanics...you think you know alot D.I.Y fix yr own bike...you thought its was easy...of course taking things off is no problemo man....putting things back is&#33;
    and after trying once or twice...you can 4get about D.I.Y liao.

    ppl dun learn spray painting and acquire the skills for NOTHING&#33;....there is a certain amt of skill and knowledge involed....juz like mechanics.

    some ppl say...wahlau&#33; very easy one mah&#33;&#33; strip the bike paint then lacquer can liao lah....if you have the time DO read wat emperor said. you think its easy why dun i pay you..........?..................okie lah &#036;300 one color paintjob for 1 week....split equally 300 divide by 7days bout 40 over dollars A DAY...you want to work for pay like that? ....for all the above mentioned efforts?.....not much...especially s&#39;poreans. and belive me im being very GENEROUS by giving a 7days dateline AND 300 DOLLARS&#33;&#33;&#33;?

    so next time b4 you send/pay for a paintjob..spare a thought for ppl who went through all the training..etc....b4 you complain about the price. if you think you can&#39;t even afford a decent paintjob then why ride in the 1st place...if you set your mind into riding i think things like paintjobs hold an equal importance as performance as well.....its never complete without a good paintjob...if you are reading this forum at this point of time i assume you are a bike enthusiast or equilvalent...so justify that.

    juz my 2cents. not meant to flame anyone. thank you.

    So clever, not many ppl know about this. The secret is in the paint. The spray can ppl use today was used in the auto industry during the 60&#39;s. Acrylic paint tends break down easily. Today&#39;s auto paint are added with synthetic polymers so that the paint compund is structurally more rigid and durable. Acrylic can also offer the same slick finish if you are skilled but after many years it will degrade slowly. No offence but I&#39;m hardcore DIY. You only do DIY when you learn it from the experts and not from "talk c o c k" friends.

    But I don&#39;t really trust some so called "pro-paint shops" either. Some of them never did do proper sanding nor apply proper techniques after stripping the bike to the bare metal. This caused the some undesirable consequences to the metal surfaces(which they will then cover up with the paint). Besides not many places have draft down spray booth so I might as well go DIY.

    Guys,i had an "ugly" incident with the JB authorities today.Don&#39;t want to talk bout that now,but those JB MBJB farkers scratched my RVF&#39;s new paintwork and refused any responbilities.

    Just want to know any shop in Singapore that do custom airbrush(no stickers).Can recommend me?Actually got frend who recommend a shop in JB that airbrush and price was reasonable but i don&#39;t trust leaving my bike in a "foreign" country for a week or two.

    Give me an address and price quotations if possible.Thanks&#33;
