Just got done with my cheap race plastics that i picked up.
Went from this:


To this:


To the currently still tacky:



All with some good ol fashioned Krylon paint. I didnt think it turned out all that bad for a $20 paint job thats prob going to end up skipping across the pavement anyway. Now if i could get the bike to run id be ready for my track day. :laugh I know most of you have more talent than i have with a paint can, so post em up.

i've seen some really nice paint jobs with rattle cans, just entails some nice thick coats and some good 'ol wet sanding haha.

I don`t blame you for going that route. Paint is so damn expensive. It does not look bad. If you did not say it was from a rattle can I don`t think anyone would notice.

Any one ever done a camo rattle can job? Any tips?
I want to do a rattle can camo job until I can get a "real" paint job done but I'm not sure how to do the whole camo thing.
lots of time, tape and patience :dunno

Well here is the pic of the upper I rattle canned. Turned out pretty damn good for rattle can.
Sorry about the pic quality, guess it's about time for a new camera.
I liked how this blue turned out....hmmm I think I will buy a quart of it.

Maybe it's time to get another one! :O

Don't say you can't due to kids and wife

My son is on it in my avatar pic and my wife was the one who bought the bike for me! My wife is such a sweety:devious

Here is what I did with my bike. Used House of Kolors model spray paint, you know, the really little cans. Probably took 5-10 of them.
Hmm that blue looks like the blue I did on mine?
Mine was an import car color.

Nah, I think I'm done with the TL's.

I just miss it. Nothing will replace those good times.
