Got most of the bike in epoxy this weekend. Had some problem with induction time. Apparently it takes a lot longer than the 10 minutes stated in the tech sheet.

First pic is my reflection on the tank. If this was the first session of clear I would be extatic. Second pic is the tank from further away. Third pic is a part I sprayed before the epoxy fully induced. Last pic is most of the parts curing.

Tech sheets are for reference only as a "guide"
And do not hold you to following that specific direction. Something all manufacturers should tell you. A proper tech sheet would be 8 pages long to properly state what you should do and when you should do it

Here's a company that states that

Progress... First session, 5 parts, zero problems. Black, pearl, and a coat of clear to protect it. The rear fender is done until flow coat.

Hope to get the rest of the parts to this point next weekend.

Second session went great. Only 8 more to go. Laying out the design on the tank took longer than I thought it would. I kept changing and tweaking things right down to the end. Came out good tho.

Sunday's progress. Wish I had more time to spend on this project. But at least I continue to make progress.

Light undercoat of a coarse silver, some shading in black with the airbrush, 4 coats of HOK KBC Candy Apple Red with a good helping of Cherry Pie red micro flake, and 2 coats of Tamco clear.
