So, I am in the middle of transforming my bike and as many of you know, I painted it myself. I chose Krylon over Rustoleum because my local store had a gray I liked in the Krylon. After having several cans of Krylon gloss black spit on my tank and side covers, I decided to try Rustoleum gloss black on my bags. Well, as far as I am concerned, the Rustoleum is a superior paint in every way. It goes on better. It goes on thicker without running. It is glossier. I am very impressed. If I ever get the energy to repaint the tank and bags, I will definitely go with Rustoleum.

I've had the same problem with Krylon spitting. It's junk I guess.

No pics on the bags yet. I just put the final coat on the lids tonight and I will pull the masking tape off tomorrow. The bags have gone their first round and I will be wetsanding and putting the final coat on them tomorrow with the masking tape coming off friday. I will put up pics on Saturday probably.

It is going to be a bit longer on the pics. The powder coat sample for the bags frames and case guards were a bit lighter than I expected so the powder coater had to figure out how to go darker. I hope to have them early next week. Since I am not getting the frames I decided to let them cure a bit longer before I buff them out. No buff, no pictures :smilie_happy:

Seriously though, I think the longer they cure the better the end product will be.

Sorry for the confusion, Joe. I am not doing anything to the frame. I am having the case guards and bag hangers powder coated.

I am in Memphis for work right now but I am hoping the rest of the parts are home when I get there. I will put it together and post pics as soon as I can.

I have three videos on you tube. If it looks like the bike in my avatar, then it is my bike. :grin:

After delays for various reasons, my parts are supposed to arrive in the mail today. Hopefully I will have time to install them today. If so, I will post pics. :clapping:

I am finishing up a new paint job and will post up a picture of two when I can. I don't have it back together yet as some of the parts still need some finish sanding. But, I eliminated the gray and added some red to the tank.
