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.

 

 

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.

For Cracks, have to go thru the hard way. Putty and sand.

For clear coat scratches i have the simoniz pen to repair the clear coat.

 

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

 

Thanks! Will try it out when i'm free.. :p
