I used to get reactions with rusto when I lived in the USA. It had no rhyme or reason and it used to piss me off so bad.

My method and needed items are as follows.

Sandpaper/paint stripper. Rough grade for paint removal, 800 wet and dry is what I use for smoothing off layers. Alcohol (Isoprop 99%) for cleaning and tack cloths for removing ittty bitty dirt and shitty. These are important, as they're something most people are not even aware of. A good painting mask, as it's not a good idea to get in too heavy as it doesn't do you any good. Masking tape, goes without saying. Dust sheets if you are doing it outside/inside where you don't want to get any paint.

Strip frame. Get it down to bare metal unless you are certain you won't get reactions etc. Go over frame with rotary tool and wire brush attachment to remove all of the bits like this.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-image … bffa08.jpg

As it goes mine had loads left. I then cleaned it four times using isoprop and kitchen paper towels until the paper towels stayed white. Then go over it with a tack cloth, stuffing it into all of the welds and joins in the frame.

Primer. I usually go 2-4 coats depending on coverage and how intricate the frame may be. What I mean is, some frames are a PITA and you may miss bits. Get it covered, then let it harden for a couple of days. I know this is much longer than what may be stated, but it's the only way to prevent reactions later on I found. Wet sand it until it's all smooth. Clean, hit it with another tack cloth.

Paint it. This can be your total coat (one stage finish) or the base coat for your multiple stage finish. Again, 2-4 coats nothing too heavy. Honestly it's actually quite hard to muck up painting tubes it's so much more forgiving that panels. Just follow any video you find on the net.  8-12 inches, don't put on too much.

This is the bit where I leave the frame for about 2-3 weeks to fully harden. However, I did some experimenting and it seems that 10 mins or so with a good, high powered hot hair dryer can actually speed this up substantially. You can leave it a day or two, up to you. Then repeat the wet sanding to smooth process, unless this is your final finish coat and you're doing it on the cheap.

Then once you've wet sanded it smooth and cleaned/tack clothed it apply either your intercoat (candys, pearls, flakes) and then move onto the clear, or, simply add the clear.

Then just watch an instructional video about colour sanding.

Nobody is a bad painter. That's almost impossible. All you are doing is pulling a trigger and moving your arm from side to side, from 8-12". If you have a willy there's no excuse at all for not being able to judge that distance.

However, every one can be bad at prep because it's bloody hard work and most of us don't like that. The only time I have ever wrecked a paint job is with cheap crap paint (my fault) and always by rushing through impatience. If you do it right and buy the correct materials then it's very hard to fail.

Just know, though, that home painting requires an absolute crap ton of prep because of overspray (booths have extractors) cure times (booths have ovens) and the difference in quality of rattle cans and pro grade paint. Home painting is also quite expensive, if you do it properly and etc. I've spent (on paint alone) what I would pay for a basic powder coat job all done and dusted.

Here is mine, a clean and tack cloth away from being ready for primer.

I've been painting most of my life, and only lately have I been getting "wrinkle reactions" and cant figure why. I've been using brands like DUPLICOLOR which is good stuff. I clean properly with alcohol. Only thing I hsvent used is the tac cloth..any advise?


Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

Re: PAINT JOBS..WHO DOES THEM AT HOME?

lite spray coats wait a while then repeat till you build up the color to the shade you like. then wait a week add next color (if more than one color). let dry a week wet sand  and  clear coat the frame.

I've been known to rattle can frame color change at home but if I want quality I'm paying a professional, doesn't the saying go "Buy once, Cry once"

as long as you put a good solid clear coat on it last a good long while.

Re: PAINT JOBS..WHO DOES THEM AT HOME?

Allot of the paints from DUPLICOLOR state specific flash times which is giving me trouble. I know how to paint but something's pissin me off.

You're putting on too much paint too fast.

Sadly painting with a gun allows you to do that, as the cure time is much faster and it's then immediately baked to an almost full cure.

Wrinkles are caused by the paint curing and releasing chemical vapour. You've basically trapped those curing chemicals, hence the wrinkles. The only way to be safe is to give each stage full cure time (about two weeks is usually enough) but I found the hair dryer method allowed me to basically take the piss with speed and suffer no penalty.

Ok, so it's better to wait longer between paint coats?
How about PRIMER COATS?
Should they be considered "paint coats" as well?

Re: PAINT JOBS..WHO DOES THEM AT HOME?

I'm 50 going on 17. I've had a bunch of old Mopars and Fords. A few GMs  I dig em all.  I'd like to get another 64 Falcon. Great looking and fits in the garage. There's a 64 Comet near me pretty cheap that's pretty cool  289 4 speed.... but you know wife want kitchen update etc... 

And that wasn't a decent paint job by any means...

the paint in rattle cans isn't crap, it's the nozzles and pressure that'll kill ya......plus the difference in tint between cans....but you can get away with a lot with matte/ satin paint.

Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.
