    The best Fame Paint EVER!

    http://www.eastwood.com/underhood-en...-gray-set.html

    Just needed to say that Eastwood Spray Gray is the best frame paint I've ever used. I shot the unprimed, scotchbrited frame of the CS1 with this stuff over the weekend, last weekend. 3 coats. Its acrylic lacquer so you only wait about 6 or 7 minutes (in California) to shoot another coat. Get close, about 5 or 6 max inches away.

    A couple days later I needed to grind some off to braze my seat and tank brackets . . . . HOLY SHITE. . . . This stuff cured to a powdercoat type of finish. I had a drum sander, flapper deal on my drill and let me say that it took a lot of gas to get this paint off the frame and prep for welding. I am impressed.

    I might shoot a coat or two of SPRAYMAX 2K Clear Urethane over the frame if I have any left after the body work and tank job - just to really make her POP! This is good stuff.

    i've used the eastwood chassis paint (black) for a couple frames now. it has a nice medium lustre finish but when i've gone to recoat (touch-ups etc.) the new paint makes the old paint go wrinkle
    didn't seem to matter whether the original surface was a week old or a year old....same result. guess i'll try their underhood-engine paint sometime.

    I have loads of Eastwood stuff laying around, generally been pretty pleased.
    Good to hear the gray works.....
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    Yep Eastwood. I've used the extreme chassis gloss black on the TA125, Bultaco and Motobi with excellent results-expensive. Some good stuff.
    I also use an industrial grade from work called Great Dane and have had excellent results as well-free. Were talking spray bombs here folks!!
