New Yamaha Set

Post by Brush on Fri May 09, 2008 4:03 pm

Here's a set of Yamaha parts I am painting:

It has a few dents to be removed:

A stud welder is a great tool. They don't cost that much and save alot of time and you don't need as mush bondo. Which is always good:

Dents are out now and ready for some bondo:

Bondo work almost done. I use a shreader to rough it out then go to 80 grit sand paper then 100 grit to finish with:

Ready for primer. I thin my primer 10% to start, because I want it to fill:

Everything primed and guide coated. With the guide coat I can see where it needs to be sanded. I block sand and I start sanding with 320 grit and finish with 400 grit. I know I am level when all the guide coat is gone. You can see by this picture I have more sanding to do. Sometimes I will prime again if it needs it. If I do, I thin it another 10% to reduce the orange peel and make it eaiser to sand and sand with 400 grit:

Everthing primed, sanded and ready for color:

Painted with HOK BC09 Planet Green. It will then be ghost flamed with Silver Pearl:

I will post more pictures as I go along:

My bad this is not a Yamaha it is a Kawasaki. Everything is covered with a couple coats of SG100 for protection. I layout one side of the tank first. Using 1/8" tape. It is very important to keep things clean so use mineral spirits and a rag and wipe your hands once in a while. Your finger prints can come back to haunt you later.

Then I drape some paper over this side and trace the tape image with a stabilo pencil. Put some marks on the tape and paper to use as a guide later.

You can use a Electro Pounce machine, which burns little holes in the paper , or a pounce wheel, which looks like a cowboy spur, and poke holes. I prefer the Electro Pounce. It is faster but cost about $300

Take some baby powder and put a small amount in a small rag.

Roll the ends up and tape up the ends to make like a bag.

Turn the paper over and place it on the other side of the tank and line up your marks. Pad the paper with your bag of baby powder.

You should end up with little white dots you can use as a guide to tape out this side of the tank.

Your pattern should be pretty close. You may have to do some adjusting to get it right.

Now you can mask everything off with tape or transfer paper. If you use transfer paper use a Exacto blade knife and cut on top of the 1/8" tape, be carefull not to cut to hard. You don't want to cut through the tape into your base coat. I like to keep parts covered with plastic to keep them clean. Sometimes I can't get to them for a few days.

Now is a good time to clean everything to get the oils from your hands and what ever else might be on your parts off. This is what I use for pearl ghost flames. The amount of pearl depends on how much you want the ghost flames to show. Make a test piece to get it where you want it.

Clear coat comes next.
