actually, the air connection is a little short on your gun and I didn't have a new one in 1/4 inch that i could use with it, so i cranked up the airbrush PSI and have done all of it with that. airbrushing at 80 psi FTW!

plus, the airbrush is easier to clean since it's smaller and i have less wasted paint on the inside of the container

about 2 minutes each or so.... but then i have to let it dry for a little bit and do another color. the black and white base coats are about 3 coats of each. the Clear coat is capable of being up to 15 mils thick... so that is what will make it look really good.

Bret, I want to see it with clear on. The one of the close up on the blue flakes shows texture. Can I ask are you shooting clear on it right after or you going to clear all at once? I ask because I know you have to wet sand after so long to get a good stick to the paint. Looks good so far and I like that flakes with the white in the middle.

i'm going to do all of the clear at one time. the intercoat clear allows 2 - 3 days until you have to put the main clear coat on. It should be good. there is a lot of texture right now so it shouldn't have a problem sticking.

Hey Brett, do you think the clear is gonna fill in all the texture on the surface or do you have to wet sand that out? Just curious if the surface is gonna be smooth and glossy or "textured". Definetly an interesting paint scheme.

the clear will definately smooth that out... the texture is just from the metal flakes. the clear is capable of being up to 15 mils thick. the metal flake at it's widest point would be if you stood it up, is 2 mils. it should be covered nicely

Yeah wet sand it, get most of the orange peel out, then clean it well, shoot another coat on it, then color sand it LIGHTLY just to remove trash, then you will have to buff it to a mirror image, should look pretty good....

I will be curious to see it when its done. Are you putting any heat on it to keep the moisture/humidity out? Should look pretty good.

I've been keeping the 300 watt halogen lights on it in that small enclosure... it gets pretty warm. i should be putting the plastics back on saturday afternoon. I'll clean the rest of the bike up saturday morning
