lets add this up ...how many cans of spray paint did you use and how much did each can cost ??? Be honest...
i seem to add more scars on a some what regular basis....the rattle can was for the self etching primer only maybe 5-6 cans cant really remember. the other was the qt container duplicolor paint shop paint lacquer paint. i think the paint and clear was right around $250. we used an HVLP gun to spray it.

i know there are fans of this paint and those that think its worthless. i just really wanted to show the results after 1 1/2 years. we need to wash it and then get a high resolution camera on it.

With the proper prep and the proper care I have had ZERO problems with the Dupli-Color Paint shop lacquer. I did a custom job on my Harley,black with blue pearl ghost flames (dry pearl mixed with clear) a year ago and it still looks great ! I may shoot a coat of ureo clear on the tank cuz lacquer and gasoline don't mix but I'm REAL careful when filling up. I know my luck will run out sooner or later and I'll spill some gas,so the ureo is like insurance.
I started painting with lacquer back in '78 so I am comfortable with it but the main reason I tried it on the bike was the lack of a shop at the time.I just hung some sheet plastic in my carport and wet down the dirt. It came out great and with color sanding and buffing had great depth.
Are there better paints out there ? Of coarse,but for ease of use and "fixablity" for noobs and people like me without a booth,its a fine product ! Would I use it again ? I'm using it right now to paint a 6 month old "Street Glide" for a Bro in my club...
