  • Rustoleum Paint job

    thanks for the inspiration guys.I did it and I am quite pleased with the results.One bodyguy told me 1100 to fix and paint my bike,another told me 700. I did it for less than 50 bucks!!!! I swear,however I am going to do it again this time I will spend 100...{big pimpin}

          The thing about the body shops, they always figure in prep-work, and that is what is so freaking expensive. If you have the time to do it yourself, it really isn't hard, just time consuming.

          I been doing some research into Soda Blasting. Think sand blasting, but with baking soda. Will remove paint and stuff, but won't harm plastics. It won't remove rust tho. I may try the soda blasting method when I go to repaint my bike. That way you don't have to worry so much about blasting one area to much, and wearing a hole or something of the sort.

          And you really can do a pretty decent paint job on a bike with rattle can. So why pay that much money, when you can do it yourself for a quarter, or maybe even less, of the cost a shop would charge.


          As for my sig, I dunno, I thought it was hilarious. A guy on one of my local Mustang forums had it as his, so I stole it to use here.

            Ditto on the prep work. It took me a good 8-10 hours of prep work before I did my 2-4 hours of painting.(not including the checkerboard) But that prep work is what makes the difference in the end.

              i have 5 gal buckets of soda for blasting if you would like one. it is a much finer cut than regular soda so it should be real gentle on plastic

                          did this to my friends Toyota Paseo, we used their white color called biscuit, did the whole car. looked pretty good for 50 bucks. i may get red or black for this and throw on clear coat to make it shine
