Harley Davidson Sportster Silver Double Edge & Red Pinstriped Flames by Eye Kandi
After the fine line tape was applied to all the motorcycles sheet metal, it was time to airbrush some black basecoat along the edge of the flames.
This is a slow time consuming process, our objective is to create a nice even fade that is consistent throughout all of the pieces. Also, it is our job to do this with the least amount of paint build up.
Next we had to unmasked the motorcycle paint set to reveal the new flames & also prepare them for the secondary underlaying flames.
Time is taken out to inspect every piece of the motorcycle paint set to ensure no flaws before taking them to the next stage.
The underlaying flames were to be a red outlined pinstripe style flame.
After the motorcycle sheet metal had the red outlined pinstriped flames applied, It received its first clear coating session. We applied 4 to 5 coats of Premium High Quality gloss clear coat.
This particular custom paint set was going to have a Satin Clear finish for more of an older hot rod feel. So after the first set of clear coats were finished & cured, the motorcycle paint set was sanded back down. Then 4 coats of Premium High Quality Satin clear coat was applied.
Below are finished photos of the client’s new motorcycle custom paint set, ready to be mounted to his ride.
