Dude, I know it's a ***** but post as many pictures and write as much as you can detailing the process.
It IS a pain! j/k...
The process is straight forward.
1. The tank was chemically stripped then scuff 80. Etch primed, then 2 coats of epoxy.
2. the fairing was manually stripped with 220 (i thinks) inside and out.
Followed up with scuff pad. 2 coats of epoxy.
3. Wetsand everything with 400. Shot the chevy yellow (5459 i thinks).
Layed 3 coats of clear. Let dry (few days) then wetsand 600.
4. Used 1/4" 3M blue vinyl to layout the flames.
5. Shot 4 coats of Old Skool flake gold pearl mixed in clear base;
Dupont 150 Balancer. The flames are WAY too ghost. I either didn't
mix enough pearl and/or didn't shoot enough coats. BUT, when the sun
hits it just right, the flames sweet.
6. Lastly, shot 3 more coats of clear.
The base coat is Dupont Chromabase. The epoxy and clear is **********.

A man can do all things if he but wills them.
