Correct me with the right procedure, which can help me with the imp and most looking parts which are yet to be painted...
there is no thing like pencil gun, its called airbrushing.
i doubt if he will do airbrushing, as it needs lot of practice and a good setup.
your bike is treated in open place, so the quality of colour will not be good.
and if you want to do vinyle work, its better to do it after colour coat (before clear coat) .
and here are standard colour coating method :-
2. old paint removing (not by fire, use sendblasting for best results) & washing for grease / silicon removal.
3. basic putty work (generally polyester putty)
4. primer coat
5. sanding & putty work
6. primer coat
7. sanding & putty work (if needed)
8. surfacer coat
10. surfacer coat
11. colour coat
12. sanding & washing.
13. colour coat
15. colour coat (final)
16. clear coats (minimum 3 coats)
17. let it dry in room temp. or in oven.
18. do rub it with a 2000 no. sand paper
19. a good wax polishing.
you will get best finish and life of the paint if you do by this steps.
and always paint in a closed room with good exhaust equipments.
