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!
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
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
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?
whitbyjet65: Spraying outdoors: don't you get dust and grime in the paint?
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!!
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!
