Paint project trials and tribulations

Post by Reccebiker » Sun Jan 14, 2018 11:18 pm

So I decided to paint my 2016 Patrol. Originally a burgundy, I wanted a military theme on a bike that is a direct descendant of an iconic military machine. I did research and decided to go with a flat olive drab paint scheme. I picked up a few cans of Krylon camo paint from our local Canadian tire, and found out halfway through the paint job that Krylon quit making this paint! I did however find a suitable replacement. Although not a flat paint, Krylon was making a very close matching paint but in a satin finish.
I bashed on and continued with this monumental task. well. for me anyway, I've never taken on a job of this magnitude. Following, I hope to document all the stages of my paint job..
Cheers and enjoy!.

Two pics of the completed project. I still can't rotate the pics on this site, even tried to adjust the pics and allow for this rotation issue.
