I just did mine this weekend. I used the same Krylon Fusion that you used for your windscreen. I sanded with 400 then 600 for prep, then 600 between coats. I also used a Krylon Satin(flat) clear coat because the color doesn't match exactly. With the flat clear coat it matches the frame and side covers almost perfectly. The trick with this clear coat is to back away from the peice your painting about 18 inches and spray in a random motion. The piece will start to get a greyish tone to it when you do this. After it dries for about ten minutes, wipe it down lightly with a dry rag, and all the grey "dust"(don't know how elese to describe it) will wipe away leaving a satin finish. I love the way mine turned out, as the black just wasn't a close enough match for my taste. If anyone is interested and needs help with this, let me know. I'll be happy to give any advice I can. Here are some ok pics of my lowers without decals. I have decals that I'll be picking up tomorrow. I'll post new pics when i get em.

I used Krylon fusion gloss paint. Then I wet sanded it to make sure the surface was completly flat and then did another coat. Then I Used a high gloss clear coat by Krylon to make it really shine and it looks like glass.

yes wetsanding. Using waterproof sand paper where you get the fairings and paper wet then you sand it down so it's noce and flat and all the little bumps or overspray or whatever comes out. I jsut wet sanded once but you haveto wait a day after you paint so that the paint is dry before you wetsand.

DO NOT mix paint brands :!: For instance, if you start with Krylon paint...use Krylon clear. Otherwise it may wrinkle....I know from experience! I think Marshall had this happen to him too!


_______RED RR_______
Vinci carbon fiber exhaust
Galfer SS lines
Tomahawk-black
Motul E-Tech 100% synthetic
OEM seat cowl

Here's a pic of my lowers. I'm going to get some Red honda stickers to add to them. But this is what they look like now. As you can see they are damn shinny. Look at that reflection!

VinRR,Thanks for the compliment.
FAST600, You have it basically right. In simple terms sand for prep, spray color, sand smooth(if needed), spray clear. You only need to sand between coats if the finish is not smooth enough. It should look like a mirror and not like an orange peel(bumpy looking). Wet sanding is easy. Just take your time. It is better to sand a little, and then realize you need to sand some more than it is to sand too much, and have to paint over. Also be careful sanding the edges. It doesn't take as much pressure to sand through the paint on an edge.
