Re: just painted my tomos

A fine start, give it some detailing, decals, pinstriping etc.

Re: just painted my tomos

i was thinking about it. i like how you can see the tomos but only in a certain light. i was also thinking baout making the tomos decal neon green and having neon green accents through out. what do you guys think?

Re: just painted my tomos

The decal is raised metal, right? Finish putting your coats of black on the frame, then get a rigid sanding block and sand off the paint in the raised areas, then clearcoat. You'll have clearcoted polished metal logo on a black background!

Re: just painted my tomos

i wet sanded over the whole thing and the decal didnt show any metal

Re: just painted my tomos

Keep sanding it I guess?

Re: just painted my tomos

please tell me its raised metal and not the sticker...

Re: just painted my tomos

Looks good, I'll recruit you for some pointers when I do some painting. P.s. my puch is almost done being 2.0-ified.

Re: just painted my tomos

Re: just painted my tomos

Good job! Now the guy on the puch will have to take a second look at what just ripped past him.

Re: just painted my tomos

looking good dude. you might have some trouble ripping past my puchie though, lol. probly not she's not that fast good luck with it dude.

Re: just painted my tomos

looks sic! whats the status on the wheels?

Re: just painted my tomos

you have some over spray on the forks buddy but flat or satin black is the new pink so well done buddy cheers!!

Re: just painted my tomos

Needs some red & white pinstripes.

Definitely try and polish your engine up real nice before you put it back on. Make that shit look chrome.

Red rims w/ white walls would look sick as well.

Just making some suggestions ;)

Nooo, it's just going to get dirty again. Sandblast the cylinder/head and paint them flat black using car exhaust manifold paint (extremely durable and heat resistant). You can buy it at Autozone, it's well worth it.

Re: just painted my tomos

thanks for all the good advice. im gonna post pictures in a little of it put back together for the most part. i painted the swingarm and a few other odds and ends. i know i got over spray on the forks but its ok cuz im thinking about getting the newer sprint front end.

Re: just painted my tomos

another flat black moped?

Re: just painted my tomos

u need to paint some other color then black

Re: just painted my tomos

sandblast the whole bike, and then clearcote the raw metal. It would look like a Delorean moped!

Re: just painted my tomos

you can paint it GLOSS black!

Re: just painted my tomos

add some purple highlights and the clearcoated polished metal (i love it -- poor man's chrome)

back together

Re: back together

by the way i still need wheels!!! im looking for old tomos 5 stars if you wanna help me out

Re: back together

did you paint over the decals?

I didn't know those had stamped metal on the side.

Doesn't seem like something they would stop doing if they already had the system to do it.

Re: back together

i think its pretty clear that he scuffed the bike to paint, but did not in fact remove the stickers. I think he actually painted right over them. too bad

Re: back together

Brian Mikami /

wow...

Re: back together

i wanted to paint over them so you could still see the tomos. it was intentional

Re: back together

Andrew Squiggman /

but why did you leave the stripe sticker below the name? just curious

Re: back together

im eventually gonna paint the tomos logo neon green and the stripe on is gonna be the neon green fading to white
