HOK paint question

Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum but glad to see so many experts use this site. Maybe one of them can help me out. I recently painted my bike with HOK. I used a sealer and Base coat BC26 (white). Then I taped and masked for a second color but when I pulled the tape it looks like I might have pulled some paint along the edges. I've managed to fix it but was wondering why this would happen. The tape was 3m and I did use some green masking tape. I gave the Base about 6 hours to dry. Thanks for your help

Sounds like you might have waited too long on the basecoat. If I am doing multiple colors on something I pull the tape after the flash time.. usually like 15-30 mins. I have not shot alot of HOK product but after 6 hours I would see the base on any brand getting more brittle and hard to pull after that length of time...

some others will chime in on this one... but that is my opinion

how long did you wait to paint the base color on. sounds like there was an adhesion problem.

As I recall, I put the Base on and did a clear coat. Came back a few days later and sanded with 600, taped/masked and shot the Chrome Yellow Base.

yea I was rereading the question and realized that you are talking about the bottom color coming up and not the edges of the second color right?

In that case spider is right, I would also steer toward an adhesion problem,, and that could be a bunch of things.

At first I thought it might be some bad tape. Posibly a chemical reaction to the adhesive. But then I wasn't real sure. I managed to sand down the bad areas as well as I could and shot it with clear over both colors and it looks good. I just don't want it to happen again.

By the way, what tape do you prefer for flames and color seperation.

I use the fine line 3M 1/8" "green Stuff" which is what you used and then I fill in all the areas with the 3/4" or 1" tape depending on how tight my flames are going to be. It is a little pricey but that is the best tape made for auto paint applications.. No residue and bleed.

Paint is funny man... soo many little things without seeing the actual product it is kind of hard to tell what happened. Is this your first paint or just a flub?

I've painted other stuff but this is the first time I've really taken it seriously. I want to do a very professional job on this. I've got the fenders and side plates done, now I'm working on the tank. I got a warm day on Sunday and sanded and sealed the tank. Thats where I am right now.

I call HOK HOUSE OF HORROR because the paint job can go bad fast. Even if you follow the tech manual to the T. Bad luck
