Did this video help you?

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?

Moulay Hassani: Does the 600 grit also have to be wet ?

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.

anthony bargas: whats the best way to remove factory decals off the fairing?

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..

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!

Jujag Themag: Nice

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...

roger wilson: Thanks

bonedustmunroe: some small crack can be filled with superglue, sanded flush after the gle cures and then primed and painted then clear coated to match the original.

IllusionCustomPaint: @OGKILLa9365.... depens actually on the condition of the abs...in this video, the abs plastic were brand new, so there no deep scratches or paint cracks, so i use 400 grit followed by 600 grit...if the abs plastic were old (crack paints and scratches)...use lower grit sand paper to speed up your process!!! Hope this helps buddy!! Goodluck!!!

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.

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.

john remington: what sandpaper grit did you use??

yowhatsupmark: hey why do i need to sand off the first coating of primer?

Fernando Gonzalez: Question: Is it possible to paint a portion of my fairing? I don't want to completely paint the whole thing, just the part where I have dropped it.

IllusionCustomPaint: i use 300 grit after the primer...:-)

IllusionCustomPaint: possible bro.... but you have to be very careful with the process because it will not have an even finish... know what color the factory use to your project, before purchasing to your local paint store,they have pre mix of paints for every vehicle company... and of course, apply light coats to prevent over build up... good luck bro!

felix garcia: how do you repair some minor cracks on fairings?

IllusionCustomPaint: @bonedustmunroe...yap ur right, super glue can do the trick....however if you want it to last long felix, i suggest fix it with fiber resin and fiberglass, depends on the degree of cracks, sometimes you have to stitch it with a thin wire to reinforce the fiber resin or glue....then use a body filler to smooth out by sanding...... hope this helps...goodluck buddy!!!

Aaron Hayward: how far do you sand down too? the old primer or to the actual plastic?

IllusionCustomPaint: it depends actually on your priming result... but with the right application and thinning, 360 grit would do just fine...

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!

Amber Hong: shopping2cheap

Anders Behring Breivik: wave 100

IllusionCustomPaint: to lessen your sanding work, plus it will help you see the high spots and low spots before base coat..:-)

Fernando Gonzalez: Thanks!

Russxm: What grit do u recommend for sanding/smoothing down the primer once applied?
