  • How would you do mat? Just skip the clear coat steps? Or do they make that in mat too?

  • Use a 2 part 2k clear. Once it is cured, it's much tougher and you can buff it. :-)

  • Ok so etching primer can be used on powder coat as well. Never knew that. I always thought it could only be used on bare metal.

  • As someone who works doing custom cabinetry...I am curious to know if ANY primer will work. And a Husky Spray Gun. What about standard topcoat. 320 grit sandpaper? Thoughts....

  • Acetone would probably be better for removing oils and crap from the surface than isopropyl.

  • I would highly recommend using "2k" automotive paint in aerosol form. Your local automotive paint shop can mix up any colour you want. You would need 2k primer, basecoat (colour of your choice & 2K lacquer/clear coat. The clear coat can be gloss, satin or matt depending on your requirements. The 2k paints have an additional hardener mixed into the paint which makes the finish 10x more durable than the basic aerosol paints you get from your local hardware store.

  • I watched this video like two months ago as I thought on painting the mesh front of my Cooler Master NR600 case, which quickly rusted due to high humidity in this city (over 80% most of the time). I should have watched it again a week ago before painting it. I made a couple mistakes (I applied a heavy layer of paint over the primer on the first pass and then tried to fix a spot that got too much paint on it), but well, got a decent result at the end after sanding the paint a little bit.

  • Actually. Powdercoat can scratch just as easy as paint. As long as the mils are correct but coloring a custom PC i would go with paint because powder coat would fill all of the holes that have threads. you would have to re tap all of the holes and if you have a mesh in this case youd have to clean out all of those holes or you'd have practically a solid piece. Please paint your case. To my knowledge thinner powder coats are alot more expensive and more tedious.

  • I'm pretty sure actual painters want to ring your neck after watching your explanations. DO NOT heat your parts and spray them, paint will dry before completely hitting the part causing a rough surface and before you paint anything even with primer you should wash it then put gloves on so your oils from your hands don't get on the parts. Back to basics jay. Most spray paints work best around 70 degrees and low humidity.

  • I always put my cans of plastidip in hot water before spraying. It really helps to keep the spray super fine. That's a good tip to follow; especially if it's cold outside. If it's 95 outside then it's a little less necessary lol

  • Powder coating is better the reason they don't powder coat cars is because you can't bake a car at 400 degrees without melting the plastic interior

    Pitbull Gamer81Pitbull Gamer812 tháng trước
  • they dont powder coat the outside of a car because no one has created an oven big enough to beging with. secondly most new cars have a lot of plastic so no point having a different shade of paint on the bumper to the powder coating on the steel. then the biggest problem is the car will literally warp in the curing process because of the heat needed to cure the coating. its not that powder coating isnt better because it is, it just isnt the logical thing to do

  • Legitimately a better guide to spray painting with rattle cans than most modelling companies put on thier super duper official youtube channels. Peopleinto auto detailling almost always do better guides to this than pretty much anyone else. Although companies like games workshop probally dont want little kids heating their cans up and making home made hand grenades..
