  1. I'm painting Yamaha R6, doing white pearl, than I need to land original stickers, than clear coat..
    how much time I have to land stickers before I need to spray clear coat, as I have understood after some time clear will not bond to base coat if it hardens too much, is that true?

  2. He should've left it red and golden, kinda like the iron man design. I'm german and still think it looks worse how it is now lmao

  3. How to paint an old Acerbis fuel tank of a KTM (1991)? It is starting to get yellow.
    And other old motorcycle parts? Most of the older motorcycle plastic is impossible to paint. Do you have a video of that?

  4. When i do that always after clear coat , an edge remains where the maskingtape was ..i mean between the colors or in the colors to avoid that edge?

  5. I don't know much about this, so I'm curious – why spray silver and silver flakes when all the silver ends up getting covered with gold/red/black?

    If I saw the end result, I would've guessed that black was the base layer with gold and red on top, not black on top. Is there a particular reason it's done this way?

  6. This is stupid really who going to get all that and go oh now I need to check on YouTube how to spray paint. I thought he was going to spray paint with spray cans like accessible to everyone not with this spray painting guns and other power tools.

  7. Sir why my paint get crack when i put topcoat on it?.. it's about the topcoat or the paint i use? I hope some one help me with this problem. And what is the best paint and topcoat for motorcycle flairings and mags.?

  8. Does the paper attached the tape have to be a certain kind to prevent bleed through like wax paper or something? Thanks!

  9. How long do u leave it before removing the masking tape,should it be left over night or would that then cause your lines to mess up?,great videos,love ur work

  10. Love your work… Thinking about doing it full time… How do you price your works….? Like this wan you just did?… Don't have to give exact price.

  11. At the 8:00 mark, I was really liking that sweet Iron Man effect. Had it been my bike, that would have been the finishing point. NICE overall effect.

  12. Parabéns pelo excelente trabalho gostaria muito de aprender estas técnicas e praticar aqui no Brasil.

  13. Hi what gun setting would you use for clear coat for a new bee sprayer, the gun I am using is a gti pro lite with the te10 air cap
    Many thanks

  14. The paint finish looks sleek! If this is hard for you, you can always opt for decals, something like reflective decals. You can find rated A+ wholesale deals at

  15. This is cool, I'm so jealous of you people for having the space to do this. Unfortunately, I don't and the cost of renting a booth to do this makes it more expensive than just paying somebody to do the painting for me.

  16. When painting over the silver base with the red, did you remove the masking tape right after painting, or did you wait an hour until removing? Concerned about the lines not being sharp.

  17. Nice Iron Man color scheme. If I had a sports bike I would have it painted white w/ some black and an orange fuel tank. That’ll make it look like a spaceship. Pair it with an all white track suit, white backpack and an all white full face helmet with a rose gold chrome visor, and you’re now an astronaut!

  18. So are your base coats acrylic with 2k clear over the top? If so is there a danger of delamination? Thanks for sharing too. Good stuff

  19. Great video! Confirms I'm on the right track painting my bike. Thanks for including the breakdown of your spray gun and paint setup.
