As the motorcycle paint fades, the urge to repaint it tends to develop. One can opt to have the bike repainted by the professional or choose to repaint it. While outsourcing tend to increase chances of perfect results, doing it yourself tend to lower labor cost at a time when you have control of personal touches to that you need to add. You would also find painting your bike fun.
You would need to begin by creating a booth. It is normal for one not to be sure whether he or she has taken the right measures to make a booth and hence the need to create paint booth somewhere a paint stain will not be a big problem.
You may also need to consider setting up an oscillating fan and make sure that you place them somewhere they can blow fumes out of the space or room in question to avoid instances where you inhale too much. You would also need to ensure enough lighting.
You would then need to remove the parts of the bike you need to paint and set them aside. The tank tends to be the best place to start especially in a case where you are new to painting since it tends to have a broad flat surface. Once you paint, you would need to sand the tank down. You would need to note that sanding tends to take some time, but it tends to be a critical step. In a case where the surface you are working on is not perfectly smooth, you risk ending up with an uneven ugly coat of paint in your bike. You would need to remove any residual dust and particles on the surface in question after spraying before applying an extra coat.
You would need to use the filler on the sanded surface. You would also need to re-sand the surface once the filler has dried. In a case where you are not sure whether the surface is smooth, you may need to sand it and apply another layer and repeat the process. You would need to begin by applying a coat of primer which protects your metal against moisture and effects of rusting in the long run. You would also need to check whether you got the right hardener and mix with it.
Once the solution mixes, you can use a spray gun to apply a spray gun. You may need to make sure that you only re-spray when the surface is dry and sanded. You would not need to forget sanding the primed surface. You would need to wipe the sanded surface with a lightly wet thinner. You would need to mix the paint well an also add the mixed paint. It would be critical to use the recommended paints ratio. It would be modest to sand every layer and only avoid sanding the last one. It may be critical to consider going for a 2,000 grit sandpaper in a case where you are doing a paint job. You would need to be sure that the surface is perfectly smooth ready for the final paint. It may be critical to let the last coat completely dry. You would need to remember to apply several coats of the clear coat.
