Custom bike paint.

We don’t like to say no to any challenge here and this Kawasaki mean streak limited edition is a example.

It was dropped off in parts and I was asked to make it black and flip to red.
As usual this is not as easy as putting a red pearl in the black, this turns the colour maroon due to the make up or red pearl. To get the desired effect I decided we needed to run with a red candy over a black base.

Removing the factory flames and laying a primer base were the first stages them moving to the custom black base and candy layers.
This was finished with 3 coats of clear. After this we flatter off the clear and followed with another 3 coats of clear.
Here is the final product all fitted up
