    I use mostly mini guns doing bike parts. I have a couple Sata full size HVLP guns and have not looked at them for so long that I can't even tell you the model numbers. I use to use my Mini Jet Sata for clear only but have run into sputtering problems with it that I can't seem to correct.

    I use PPG Flexed n Flat and mix in some PPG straigh clear in a couple ratios to get the level of satin I want. If you download the data sheet on it it has ratios listed for eggshell, satin, etc. It seems to be hard as nails and is very resistant to fuel.

    I have spent the last couple weeks either at the track or prepping for the track, but I did manage to get something new for me done, which was to do an entire car in Rhino liner. Would not have been my choice for a finish, but I just do what the customer wants! Yes, I know there is a dent in the fender. He said not to fix it and just do the whole thing! This car is used for one thing, and that is to hold a 10,000 watt stereo and is used in NSPL events. He cranked it up for me and the entire shop was vibrating. I have another bike in the shop to be done now and it will be done in a satin finish when it is done.

    ^ i saw a truck done in that once...personally I like it, for a work truck. How thick is the liner? I wonder how much weight it adds...

    i had one that sputtered like that, the distribution ring on my full size gun was cracked/nicked and caused it, or if the screw in nozzle is not seated properly that could cause it also...I buy them used, repair and resell them, just sata guns...


    that fender dent just jumps out at me

    Me too. The other side has worse dents, but when he says “Just go right over it!”, who am I to argue?

    I spent the holiday weekend doing what? Working of course, and spent Memorial Day in the paint booth to finish up this bodywork for a CBR F4 in pearl white, silver,and black. It is the Ying to the Yang, which is his streetfightered out CBR 954 that is painted the opposite of this with black number plate outlined by gold. Should be interesting to see them side by side.....

    Green Hornet

    How 'bout color matching the sparkly metallic emerald green paint of an '18 Kawasaki H2 SX SE? I might ask to have its black side panels (the ones containing its cornering lights) painted green to match the remainder. I could restore the leading edge lines instead of hiding them, and make the whole more coherent.

    New sport tourer time? Never say never.
