scoobytru: If the fairings were painted previously do you need to sand all the old paint completely off before priming and paint?
Ed Sanchez: what grit sand paper did you use for the primer? also, do you recommend the adhesive if I'm using "home depot" plastic paint? do you use a tack clothe in between coats? thanks
west lee: kuya suggest nmn, nag spray kse ako gamit ang acrylic base paint, ung problema kapag finish na ung paint, nag kakaruon nang reaction ung plastic , uma angat ung pintura, doble gastos saka, doble LIHA :)..
Steve Steinlein: Acrylic or enamel
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?
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?
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!

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...
