    I’m going to start putting these on the homepage as articles.. Working on a new article system now so it’s easier to move between the forum and the site articles.

    i think i may still go with powder coating due to the fact of rocks nd chipping. Ill prob pull it all apart and paint the rear subframe myself or have it, and my rear passengers pegs and rearseats all powdercoated idk I just like the glossy look over flat look.

    Now I wonder how it would look to plstic dip the whole bike :lol:

    just sprayed my last coat on my swingarm, not exactly sure how many coats I put on..a shit ton…

    bout to just let this dry, then hit my passenger pegs, and ill be DONE!! unfortunately, my phone died, so you guys wont have a “HOW TO”

    IM SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :( I know ill be doing more plasti dipping in my near future, so ill definitely make a tutorial…its pretty simple…just clean what you want dipped, then spray it on………..lol…

    @09redblackRR I will probably go with powdercoating in the longrun, just because its a HELL of alot better of a job than my plasti dipping is….I didnt take my swingarm off to do it, I just taped my stuff up that I didnt want sprayed and blasted the shit out of the bike…HAHA…

    im just doing this temporarily to see how it holds up, if its good, shit, ill keep it forever!!

    @shoichirohonda Watch this too, He does the whole Audi. @mactacular This removes all doubt, I’m doing my swingarm. Very interested in seeing how long the pegs last.

    I got the whole thing sprayed and covered pretty good, so im super stoked about it, I still have another can of plastidip, so I might spray some parts of the frame every now and then just to make the coats thicker and it looking new..if it wears or anything…
