Default Spray Paint

Hi, anyone can advice me on how to spray paint my bike in 2 different colors? And also what are the secrets to get the super shining long lasting finishing?

Yep. Wanted something different. Think I covered "different" pretty well.

You got a pic of it on the bike?

Something I have been wondering is what brand of spray paint is the best for painting plastics? I've heard good things about Krylon. Any others?

I didn't sand my panels at all... just washed them up, 2 coats of primer, 4 coats of black and 6 coats of clear.

Used Duplicolor Acrylic Enamel.

15 mins between primer coats. Then 15 mins between black coats... waited 2 hours then did my clearcoats 15 mins apart.

Sand smooth, put a couple layers of primer down, 15-20 minutes between coats, let primer dry, wet sand to a smooth finish.

Lay down one color, do 4-6 coats, 15-20 minutes between coats, let fully cure (it'll be on the can how long). Mask off the area you just painted (one strip of tape and thick paper, not tape the whole thing) and anywhere else you don't want overspray. Reapeat above process (4-6 coats, let cure fully). Remove all tape and paper. I like to use 2000 grit paper and a bucket of water. Dip the paper, sand the surface, and keep dipping the paper to keep it wet. When it's nice and smooth all over, then you're done. You'll likely still be able to feel the transition between the colors, but don't sweat it. Clean and dry the surface thoroughly. Lay down 2-4 clear coats, 15-20 minutes between coats, then let cure fully. Wet sand with 2000 grit till smooth, then buff with buffing compound and a soft rag until it's super smooth. Lay down wax and call it done.

Good luck. Practice makes perfect.

Krylon is one of the best spray paints for the value. I always use Krylon with any project I do and it seems to be exceptional with plastics.

I like Dupli-color enamels. It's readily available at most auto parts stores (in red, yellow, blue, and black typically) and it goes on really nicely.
