Re: canodizing

That Metalcast stuff works pretty well. I got some from Auto Zone. I used some of the gold/orange on the high beams on my Toyota Corona to tint them an amber color. I got purple and sprayed it over the chrome steer tube on my Eastern. Not the greatest picture, but it turned out pretty well.

1 trick Bonez  anno over chrome   dont buy their Metalcast ground/base  coat - use a chrome for the base . Spray the parts that aint chrome - chrome then blast it with the metal cast . Their are 2 types
1 is  KRYLON  X metals    and the other is made by Dupli-Color METALCAST  i liked the  Metalcast my self better  . I blasted the grab bar , nerf bar and front bumper on the wifes Quad and loved the results  ill post some pics soon .

Re: canodizing

when painting over chrome with those paints do you just degrease the parts then spray it?

there is no other prep work involved?

does it stick well since the part hasn't been scuffed with sandpaper to get the paint to have something to grab onto ?

I sprayed my steer tube down with brake cleaner and then sprayed the Metalcast onto it. I don't know how durable the finish is over chrome since nothing contacts my steer tube...

Re: canodizing

thanks for the reply chillywilly smile

i saw a few other posts where people said it worked best when spraying over chrome. i just wasn't sure if degreasing the part then using the adhesion promoter was enough to get it to stick to chrome. usually everything has to be sanded lightly to get paint to adhere well.

Re: canodizing

Awsome tips guys!

That stuff looks really good MADDAWG,the color on the foiler may have not come out the way you liked,but the quality looks freakin rad.Thanks for the pics.
Looks like its holding up on the quad.

I'm definetly gonna have to play around w/ the stuff.

Gonna start w/ pedals since those get scratched up anyway.

Re: canodizing

How does the stuff look over semi polished aluminum?

I got it to like 1000grit and hand polished w/ mothers,but its not bling.
Still need the chrome undercoat?

That should be more than enough, all you need is a little shine under the paint.

Re: canodizing

I stripped my pegs down to raw aluminum and shot them with the X Metals in purple. So far, they're holding up well.

Re: canodizing

just take your time and do light coats .  another thing to try if you want it to look like ano is try using the spray paint used on glass to look like stained glass . real ano does not have a metallic look . and this would not either . besides the fact it is meant to go on something super smooth . so going over chrome would work well ...

cory , how did those bars work out ?


I used to have a handle on life ...... but it broke ...

If you are under 18 I am sorry . But I will no longer be selling to or buying from you . Too many hassles .

Re: canodizing

Definately light coats.  I warmed up the paint, painted in the sun, couple clear coats, then once it was dry hit it with the wifes hair dryer!  lol  I used the Krylon X metals

Re: canodizing

Is Maddawg saying to get chrome spray paint as a starter coat and then hit it with X Metal?
