House of Kolor Painting ?

I am attempting to paint, I have the primer on good and sanded perfect. I am using HOK Universal Black BC-25, and RU 311 reducer. It says 2 parts to 1, so I put 4oz of Black, then 2 oz of reducer, it still seems to come out thick. I got 50psi to the gun, 10psi to the nozzle. Has anyone used this paint before? Is is ok to reduce it down a little more? Help...

Thanks.

Your reduction should be fine. I wold check the vent hole on the top of the cup. Depending on what gun you are using, You may want to turn up the pressure a bit. HVLP?
Ride on,

Paint Roller/Paint101, Thanks!!!!

I uped the pressure, and got a good mist/fog going! It dried up dull, and EVEN! I then sprayed my flakes on, had to turn up just a little more. It came out great!

Thanks again!

Nice paint job, Bogez.

Isn't 50+ psi a little high for painting? I 've haven't done much automotive or bike painting but have set up a lot of commercial painting systems. We almost always tried to keep the gun pressure below 45psi to keep from painting in a fog & wasting material regardless if it was a cup gun, pressure pot or an airless system.

Planning a new project very soon and, given the $2.2K+ price I've been quoted for just a tank and 2 fenders, I 'm going to try my hand at shooting the bike (and some simple flames) myself.

I may very well find out why the pros charge what they do but I'm goin give it a shot anyway.

Mike

You should reduce it to what HOK sugests.
I always change my pressure depending on what I am painting.
Base coats should not be so high so that the paint bounces off what you are painting and ends up in the air, but not so low that it starts spitting paint.
You want it to go on nice and even with a nice pressure. Overlapping your strokes 50%.

What kind of flakes did you use? What did you mix them in to shoot?
Just curious because some flakes are kinda big and need a special gun.

Post some pics man!
