BYRMAN's Plastidip'd Track bike

So finally got around to painting my track bike. be8ytuhy

I decided to use platlstidip after doing alot of reading. It also doesnt require any prep which I liked because Im lazy

Came put pretty good actually for no prep work and only took 3 coats. We did also use some red duplicolor paint for accents. Let me know what u think!?

Also thanks to NEWRIDER for the help. His bike is next....

Did you guys use the can or did you use an actual mix and paint gun? I did my tail piece just for and giggles then pulled it off. Looked good if i would have took the stickers off.

Only thing I noticed was the first time I bumped it with my shoe it scuffed off pretty easy.

Only Colors we found in Houston were Black. We used the aerosol cans, I checked Ace hardware, Lowes, Homedepot, Auto Zone and Oriellys. Their webisite says there are some other colors but no one seemed to have anything other than Black.

People use if for painting their vehicle grills, bumpers and even painting their whole car so it should be durable.
