Winter project paint job

Post by tallman21 » Thu Jan 23, 2014 9:11 pm

Hey gang. Its been a while since I have been on here. My winter project is a complete overhaul on the gl1100. I want to replace the timing belts, redo the wiring harness etc and repaint it. I want to use some good ole spray paint (not a lot of money) and put a primer coat on it, colored coat and a glossy coat. The last time i tried to do this the paint just bubbled right up and it looked horrible. I was hoping some one here had some experience doing this and give me some advice one exactly how to go about this.

Thanks guys! and shout out to HALBUDD

Give Littlebeaver a P.M. as he just painted his wing and it turned out great you can look at his posts and see pics while he was painting it.
