i'll do you one better. it's race bodywork. and street bodywork. OEM bodywork. there is not even a trace amount of plastic in anything that leaves our shop except the tape. even carbon fiber shouldn't be called glass. it's not. it's carbon fiber. but you're not going to say i just got my race carbon fiber. you're going to say race "body ....... work" again, "body...... work, body....work, body...work, body..work, bodywork. good?mule-madness said:okay, just to get one thing staight, so people aren't confused... It's race glass.
I agree. I used Rustoleum (its what the store had). Definitely not high gloss, even the stuff that was called high gloss. I didnt prep anything beyond wiping the manufacturing/shipping dust off.cbr600rrjeremy said:if you're shooting your race ____________(fillin the blank) with a rattle can, get the cheapest crap you can find. shoot it and forget it. wait till next season to get a good paint job.
Disco, I've been using the 'epoxy' paint thats typically used for stoves and other appliances. I've been really happy with the finish and durability, the only catch is that its only available in black and white (that I can find) - pm THE MUFFIN MAN. Last time I saw him he was telling me about some 'plastic' specific paint that sticks to fiberglass bodywork really well but all the same check out the 'epoxy' paint - good stuff. Good luck bro!Disco said:I gotta bring back an old thread. I'm preparing to paint my bike and was just talking to a guy at a hobby shop who told me not to use enamel paint on my fiberglass, because it doesnt flex and it will flake off.
Does anybody have experience with this? I got a couple rattle cans from an auto parts store and now I'm afraid to use them.
very nice Coyote!Coyote said:I used Krylon Fusion Paint on my Sharkskinz. It's been on there for almost a year now and I used the Fusion painted Sharkskinz for a handful of trackdays. I haven't had any noticable cracking.
The black, white number plates, white wings, and the red are all Krylon Fusion spraycan paint.
