Tired of all black so I'm replacing the black on the sides with red. Also covering the rear fenders with black to make them look like new. Gonna spray a little metallic over the red and then clear coat it also.

I wanted to do a candy apple red with marbleizer in it. House of kolor makes it. That was what was on my harley. It looks just like marble when done. Then paint all the yellow including cage candy red. The red with flake will look bad to the bone to. here is a link to what it would look like

It peeled off great. I had to use my fingernail on some of the edges, no giggle though. And for prep I wipe it down with Meguire's Quick Detailer and a microfiber.

I don't powder coat nuthin'! Rattle can all the way!
But yeah, I'm putting the front springs in the rear, and I ordered some softer springs for the front.

There's no wax in it and it's safe to use in a painting environment.
