Out of curiosity how many cans did that take? There was a guy who worked for my father years ago who could work wonders with a rattle can
I think I used close to 25 cans. The paint I used was dupli color perfect match. They’re small cans so that’s why I used so many. In that 25 can count I used 4 cans of prime and a good amount of clear paint cans. Trick was to primer it and wet sand it smooth. Then paint it with color at less 4 coats and wet sand that. Then clear it and wet sand that to and after that you can do a good buff job. It takes a lot of time. I’m going to try painting it with a paint gun next time.Out of curiosity how many cans did that take? There was a guy who worked for my father years ago who could work wonders with a rattle can
I've always loved the race replica type schemes, loved putting stickers all over my lower fairing on previous sport bikes.
I bet I can see the flakes even in the picWho likes flake???? Lol
There are 3 layers of flake above the base, which is actually black, believe it or not! There are also multiple layers of clear to give the flake depth. Unfortunately the pictures dont do it justice, but it looks awesome in the sun.
Here's a link to some video of it.

Ok so you can only choose one, either be faster than me or have a better looking bike, but not both! LOL that bike is SICK!!!
Good save!Had bike painted because it sat outside for years before I bought her and was badly faded . Had to buy another tank because it rusted along with many other parts to bring her back to life and none of the parts matched I have no stickers he painted the kanjis and lettering . I saved this she needed clutch system had to be flushed, brakes system along with pads, fuel pump assemble was trashed, seats, tires, chain .throttle body synch. I think I'm about done I may have injectors flow tested .
