New Paint Job - From Concept to Finished Bike

First off I want to thank everyone that voted on what scheme I should use, it was fun to see what direction peoples opinions fall. I debated on just adding this to the end of the last thread but decided this would be a better way to show it off

Here is the concept I went with. Next post will be the finished bike.

Yeah me too, but it is required by CMRA. I held off on the front plate until I get my new clear bubble. I will paint it on then, should only take me an hour and it isolated to one piece. May even take the lazy mans route and hire a pinstripper to just lay it down.

I am with you though, I didn't want the yellow plate but got to have it till I get out of rookie status in CMRA, actually I am not sure when you can go to white background plates. I am pretty sure it is after your out of Novice.

Not bad for a rookie painting in his garage huh? Well it has some flaws but I can live with them.

Thanks though, now if I could just get faster I need more seat time at the track, thinking about a race school this pre-season. I don't know, still thinking about it.

Rent a paint gun and a compressor, or buy one from a shop. Paint in a can is pretty good but actual automotive two stage paint is the shiz. If you lived in Austin I would hook you up

Either way, spend more time prepping than you do painting! Should be like 80% prep and 20% mixing and painting. If you get real close to this bike you will see some spots where my shotty prep work screwed me over.

So I have a huge compressor and work on cars a lot. I have painted before but nothing like this, or with this detail. Check out my Vette which I also painted this weekend. I will also have my site updated, hopefully soon, with the entire process.

Here is what I did:

1. Setup a paint booth. Basically I got a huge tarp and put fish eye hooks in the ceiling so they lined up with the holes in the tarp. I wrapped that in my garage.
2. I added some shop lights to the booth. I got the $19.00 jobbies from home depot.
3. I chose two stage PPG Shop Line paint, basically base coat / top coat. Your gonna screw up so you can always re-sand the base coat. Also bought primer/sealer. Make sure you get tack clothes as well.
4. Good tape, I mean good tape! I bought the expensive stuff from the paint shop. I also bought Fine-Line Tape, the plastic kind.
5. I bought a 100.00 paint gun from the auto parts store.
6. I made wooden stands for each piece. Good enough to where when you shoot you can move them out of the booth with no issues whatsoever. When you get to the clear, just hangs in the air so you need to either ventilate or move stuff out. I moved stuff out.
7. I back-tapped my color transitions.
a. roll tape back on itself in the general patter of your color transitions.
b. paint the transition color. If you want orange, black, then white. Where black is the fine line between orange and white, then paint black. Make sense?
8. Use the fine line tape to make the line you want.
9. Tape half way down the fine line tape on either side and shoot the primary colors.
10. Pull all the tape and shoot at least, 3 coats of clear.

That is it. Hope it helps. Like I said you can see the entire process once the images are loaded up.

Here is the vette, came out pretty good too!

doesn't really get me excited

the layout is nice.
the color in your drawing appears to be red.
but the color on your bike appears to be baby-dookie.
so the color doesn't pull everything together well.
paint the wheels white.
