    I've had this idea to make this thread for a while but never got around to it. Oh well, better late than never right?

    I will simply be posting pics of pretty much everything I paint / powdercoat / water transfer print for all the "cosmetic enthusiasts" here on sn95f!

    Some recent stuff:

    My engine brackets I cut and powdercoated:

    Some stuff I powder coated on my four wheeler:

    A paintball gun body I dipped:

    Another piece of my quad I dipped in carbon wtp:

    Those motorcycle parts look incredible.

    All the stuff looks great but that pic really shows the depth of the black there

    That may be because it is single stage black. (acrylic urethane)

    It seems deeper and darker because it doesnt have clear on top of it, if I had to do my mustang again I would have used single stage. The pigments are in the resins reflecting the light and I speculate thats what make it look so great.

    You will notice typically this is why black show cars are single stage!

    Yeah, and I thought being a machinist doing wood work was nerve racking. This painting stuff can go beyond detailed!!!

    Just finished up my 99' ZX9R craigslist find! I actually had a 94' before I traded it for my Mustang....

    The color is a SEM candy mint green over silver base coat. My first candy job, and probably my last, seeing as how I don't like spending an entire week to paint one bike. Don't get me wrong, it looks DOPE, and the products worked flawlessly, its just that candy is WAAAYYY to time consuming to paint! :whip2:

    Everything looks killer man! I really like the dipped carbon fiber piece. I have my gas lid wrapped in the faux vinyl but would love to have it done like that.
