Where you been hiding then? 70's style chops, diggers etc. have been everywhere for the last few years. Show's, mags and stuff obv. you don't see a lot parked outside of Sainsbury's granted :D

Nearly as hip as cafe racers so expect hyowge price tags.

Tricky-Dicky 30-05-2017 02:31 PM

True there is a resurgence of 60,70,and 80s style choppers etc, but you only ever see them at shows or in magazines, the difference is i actually used to ride mine.;)

will take pics out side ,lights reflecting to much

Friar Tuck 15-06-2017 05:49 AM

Gee, how long does it take to form the images as you layer/spray the paint? And do you have to leave it to cure/dry between colours?

ink jet printed ,2 coats of clearcoat,then flat ,to a 90%smooth finish,then 2 more coats of clearcoat,flat and polish to a 100% smoth finish ,the clearcoat is baked in a spray oven for 35mins at 67c,it looks like airbrush work,with this method you can put any pic on ,and not the price of air brush work,im not nocking air brush work,if i could air brush ill not be going to work,ill have my own place,i would hate to think how much this would cost airbrushed

Friar Tuck 16-06-2017 04:00 AM

Ink jet printer?

Tricky-Dicky 16-06-2017 09:33 AM

I would guess it printed onto an acetate or similar thin clear sheet and then embedded in the lacquer....but does the colour suffer in the UV of the sunlight and fade over time?

Gee 16-06-2017 11:22 AM

Ink jet , and the colour does not suffer in time, I'm using uv clear coat top of the range, at 200 for 5 lit glasurit.water decalwater

Tricky-Dicky 16-06-2017 02:19 PM

Ahh! the same stuff as used for models etc, might save myself some work when i get around to re doing my tank.

Gee 16-06-2017 05:39 PM

Not as easy as you think good luck, a lot of spraying and murging in the picture with the tank , you will need photo exspess to miniplate the picture, and a air brush, plus the colour of your tank to bring the picture into play
