Re: Paint trial.

You need to use a wax and oil remover to prep the surface before you prime it. Have Fun! right:

Re: Paint trial.

dude dont paint it with a spray can... they do bubbles cause they dont mix well.... and sometimes the can doesnt have enough pressure it will be spitting....

i'm not looking for it to be professional job. if you seen the damage that was originally there you'll see why i'm doing it this way and not going all out on it. Plus i got some OEM fairings coming. This is just so i can stunt and use for track days.

waht u talkin about? i never said i painted anything with a spray can. Even though its not the correct way to paint but it works if you want somethign simple and not highquality.

i want to see pics of this car you painted.
