Painting Your Ped!!!

Frostback Ditch /

So I wanna see whom here has actually painted their own moped......you know, with a paint-gun, primers, base coats, and clear coats. I'm going to be converting my shed come springtime into a paint booth and would love to see what guns you use, how much paint was needed, along with any tips and products you may have/use.

When the paint dust settles, I promise to have a crazy sick Moby to show ya'll (including custom airbrushing ;). Oh, and feel free to post your pics of custom paint jobs, the more ideas I get, the better.

Sweet paint jobs. Thats just the inspiration I need. What kind of paint gun did you use? I'm trying to find myself a nice, inexpensive gun I can use. What kind of paints did you use exactly?

Re: Painting Your Ped!!!

once again very nice work kile.

Re: Painting Your Ped!!!

I use PPG, and in some cases i will use the inexpensive version OMNI just depends

if its a base coat OMNI is fine, its gonna be pearled and cleared later anyway ya know.

I have a few DeVilbiss guns and a couple Mac guns that are DeVilBiss bodies.

I like em. a lot of people prefer sata, I dont really understand the difference quality wise. I like my setup.

Thanks Butnut, I've actually got your website bookmarked, but when I first saw it (almost a year ago?) I thought it was a rattle can job. Now that I read it again, I see the errors of my views

Re: Painting Your Ped!!!

double-tank maxi is so cool.

rattle cans the way to go. but some super easy shit to remember is you want a high volume low pressure top feeding gun. learned it in auto painting class haha. only thing i remember. also make sure you get s uper light touch when wet sanding. saves alot of time!!!

Re: Painting Your Ped!!!

i usually shoot omni AE... now i think they call it Shop-Line, its the cheapest PPG you can get.

I have a taiwaneese 'star' HVLP gun... cost about 150 bucks, it does about as good of a job as i do.

gonna be shooting Deltron 2000 next weekend on a friend's bicycle, we'll see how that goes.

Re: Painting Your Ped!!!
