Any updates on this?  I am painting my tank and trying to decide what clear coat to use.

I'm having my tank, fender and frame sandblasted and primed! Do I still have to sand the parts or can I start painting? ?  By the way very good job sir.  Have yourself a savage day!! Cool

Depending on the media used you should be ready to paint.
When I had access to my shop's sandblaster I used 80 grit aluminum oxide. It left a great finish for paint/powder coat to adhere to.
Blast the part, bath in isopropyl, spray. Comes out great.
Make sure you clean the inside of the tank really well. Even if you mask it off for the sandblast. Take the tape off and flush it out twice.

Great results !! Sweet bike also !! How did you do your rear fender ?

And BTW, of what I know, a car paint job takes about a month to completely ''dry''. Top coat is dry to touch but undercoat might still have solvents wich makes paint less resistant. So yes, as gyrobob said, letting the tank sit in the garage for a while after painting might be a good idea IMO

By the way, I didnt have to rub it out, just a couple coats of wax.


How long did you wait to wax it?? I hope it was long enough to keep from solvent popping

I do have a question though; when doing a two tone paint job like this, is it safe to try to polish down any orange peel with a polishing compound before putting the clear on? Would it totally wreck the areas where the colors overlap? I've always wondered this, but never felt like risking any of the stuff I was working on to find out =/ lol


As long as there is enough clear coat you could wet sand it perfectly smooth and then buff it back out, In my opinion though I have found that if you do wet sand and buff it seems like the rich deep color is gone and it doesnt look wet as sprayed, just my opinion though

ALSO NEVER USE SPRAYMAX WITHOUT A RESPIRATOR AS IT CAN MAKE YOU REALLY SICK OR KILL YOU- something no paint job is worth . That would be the wrong kind of "killer Paint Job "

Will Spraymax 2K work to clear coat a Duplicolor paint job?

also,

Let's say I have four motorcycle tanks to clear coat.  Will one can of Spraymax 2k be enough?

Yes it will work over duplicolor base coats, one can might do 2 tanks depending on size and depth.
Last job was a ghost flame job on a Sportster tank and bobber rear fender with one can.
