Looking to take off the pain, primer it and then flat black.

wish I had a motard / dual sport, it'll be next








just wet sand it down really good, you don't nessisarily have to go all the way to the primer, just get the entire surface roughed up enuough for the next coat to stick

Well if your bike don't have any scratches or anything to be filled in really you would be able to wetsand with 600 and make sure it is all a frosted color on the clear. Then you should be able to shoot theflat black after that. If you over there off fairmont I am off the beltway close to 225. I am going to help Blitz with his bike doing it flat black. You trying to use real paint or spray can? Hit me up if you want someone to check it out for you.

Did the same to my track bike...only I just wet-sanded the tank. Used primer on the rough spots but spray canned it using the Rustoleum (Universal) cans, and it came out real good. That's the brand I was suggest if rattle caning it.

Of course this was just a track bike and we weren't trying to do a pro job.

You can't tell from my pics, but we fixed to large spots from a low-side. We used bondo, sanded, primed and painted it.

I guess it just depends on how deep the scratches are, we filled in some of little scratches with just primer, sanded and repainted over it.
