PS Help

If anyone here is good at Photoshop could you paint my upper fairing black? I'm thinking about painting it that color this weekend so I want an idea of how it'll look. It's just primered right now.

buy some spray paint at home depot that says enamel on the can. you can get a high gloss or regular gloss. i think it will look better painted all black.

sorry but i aint got no chop skills though, womp womp.

you are going to need laquer to clean the gun afterwards, paint reducer, one quart of base, one quart of top coat, one coat of clear, and a dust free room. thats before you adjust the gun for the psi/paint ratio.

trust me, its easier to use spray cans unless you know what your doing. either way its a learning experience.

Arturo: Why enamel...??? I'm thinking to paint my bike, but will like to use some kind of vinyl coating that will be easy to remove and keep the original paint. Is that possible...????

i disagree if you have spray paint skills. i know alot of ppl who have spray can jobs and they look better then some ppls paint jobs..,. you cant beat a $30 paint job.

Yeah I think I'm going to either spray or might even have someone paint it. I've been planning on getting part of my car touched up and that's black so I'm gonna go by this guy and see if he can paint both for a pretty good price since he'll already have the black out for everything. We'll see...

Here's a five minute job, but I guess it will give you an idea of what it will look like.

I decided to try it myself and this is what I got (the PS that is) Do you guys think it'll look alright like that? And Dotcom I'll see what this guy says in a bit. If he'll cut us a deal or something. My family knows him and my sis used to work for him and if he can use the same paint on the bike as he does on the car he might be able to do it fairly inexpensive. Otherwise, get ready to come to Mo City, lol. I went and got some bondo for fiberglass also cuz this cheap upper fairing already has some cracks in it and I don't want cracks in the paint so I'll have to figure out how to use that also.

If anyone has experience in that too gimme a shout!
