I had every intention of getting it professionally done this year but couldn't find anywhere that could do it for what I could afford, most places gave me a $400 and up quote.


Dang, when i did mine 2 yrs ago the body shop did my tank AND side covers for only $150....WOW guess I got a DEAL !



Good luck Kingston, I gave up trying to redo some areas of my son's pick up truck with a rattle can.....I couldn't keep the dust away and it kept looking like crap but OBVIOUSLY I'll take IT to the same body shop I took my tank and side covers too.




Good luck !

When you say wiped it down what do you mean?


After you spray primer and even after some of the initial coats of color you sometimes sand it down to make it perfectly smooth with very FINE sandpaper. Then you wipe it down/off real good to make sure you get all the dust and impurities off before applying the next coat.
