khent pelimer: can u show me how the proper mixing of the primer / thinner? and paint / thinner? bout the ratio?
IllusionCustomPaint: @Moulay Hassani.... it does not recquire to be wet all the time.. it's up to you! i (personally) like it wet, because i don't want those inhale those sanded paint! it very dangerous! wet sanding will give you an assurance with that! hope that helps! it's your call brother!
John Lyndon Pondoc: is it ok if you use paint thinner to remove the paint on plastics?
dw2ks: That paint wont last one week...you need to apply adhesion promoter and flex agent for the paint to properly stick to any plastic component...such as Bulldog. Not good tutorial.
rob b: The guy who made this video dosent have a clue, you MUST use plastic primer BEFORE regular primer ( its a clear isolator coat for plastics that you dont rub down) ...or you will get bad reactions and the paint will be freaked up and peel off..
anthony bargas: whats the best way to remove factory decals off the fairing?
rod ney: Hi, I did this and my base coat had a reaction in places. The primer didn't seal off the plastics. I was told to use a dual pack primer/sealer and it now it is fine. Plastics are a bitch. ( I wasted primer and half my base coat, not to mention extra work! d'oh!
IllusionCustomPaint: it depends actually on your priming result... but with the right application and thinning, 360 grit would do just fine...
IllusionCustomPaint: yes it is HVLP, cause i only have a small compressor, it does not require a lot of air.. ..hope this video helps.... goodluck and God Bless!!!
Darren Kitchens: Nice video. is that an HVLP gun you're using? I just bought a '01 gsxr1000 from a friend. it had been stolen from him and recovered in IN. mostly intact, but more damage than he wanted to deal with. I will need to repaint the fairings and the tank. so I will surely be checking out more of your vids.
Russxm: What grit do u recommend for sanding/smoothing down the primer once applied?
IllusionCustomPaint: sorry for a very very late reply man! it depends on plastic condition, if its new or still fresh, you don't have to sand it down to plastic, but take into consideration what KIND of paint the factory use... remember this, lacquer is for lacquer and urethane must not be lacquered... so if you have an extra budget and time, i suggest sand it to plastic... hope this helps!! goodluck!
Anders Behring Breivik: wave 100
Amber Hong: shopping2cheap
roger wilson: Thanks
Jujag Themag: Nice
Aaron Hayward: how far do you sand down too? the old primer or to the actual plastic?
IllusionCustomPaint: as far as my experience is, urethane is best for paint jobs on motorcycles and automotive.. so far i haven't heard of paint cracking on plastics and fairings...
tasatasat: what is a good spray paint for fairing? I would think it would need to be a paint for plastic and something flexible that won't crack.
Fernando Gonzalez: Thanks!
