Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Cleaned up the porting inside the exhaust flange of my homemade exhaust and sanded the whole thing in preparation for the BBQ paint. Also started painting the muffler mounting bracket. Decided to try out Krylon Fusion paint since I have read many good reviews on it. The can says it is good for plastic, metal, wood, wicker and more. No primer needed.
So far I can say that it comes out extremely watery thin, runs easily and has poor coverage. I only spray paint things with many light "dusting" coats. Seems to be more durable that way. I have applied 6 coats and I can still see through it. Maby after the whole can is used up it will cover and color better? I will find out tomorrow!
