The factory paint is stripped off then the bare metal highly polished before application of the Krylon X-Metal paint, which is clear with a blue tint in this case. Anything that looks like a stripe is probably just the light reflecting.is this over a simply striped body or some level of polish before paint?
I just did it to test the new color and didn't do any detail work or put on rubber tires yet. I agree though, and will do the interior and base in flat black when I get to it. The lights and such still need done too.The exterior is sweet, but that red interior has got to go! How about a shade of tan?
I was watching the sun glint off it as it came up this morning...The Boneshaker, in particular, came out great.
The way I've been doing things is to use 300 sandpaper, then a steel wool SOS pad, and finish up with the stainless steel wire wheel on the Dremel. This may seem backward to some but the wheel really brings out a mirror shine the steel wool or sandpaper can't do, for me anyway.I'm lovin that blue! Have you tried the blue over red for the black look yet? I think I went red, blue, then red. Another quick question. After polishing did you rough up the finish with scotchbrite or fine sandpaper? I had bad adhesion problems.
