So i've been messing around with new paint ideas and a few of you guys were talking about metal flake...so i decided to shoot some rainbow metal flake on my fork cap



it came out really well so i'm gonna paint a frame black with rainbow metal flake, also thinking about doing it to my new hubs i'm gonna get as well.

thoughts?

That looks sick, but i don't think you should over do, maybe just paint the frame and that's it? well that's my opinion on it, it will probably look good either way though haha.

yeah it's gonna be either just my frame or my hubs as well. The more coats i use the more intense the metal flake, i think i'll do 3 coats because this cap is done in 4.

you can also get it in aerosol cans but the clear coat is made for Lexan and not metal, although you could use it and then use an automotive clear coat over it.

Wait, so would this work? I would strip my frame with paint stripper, use primer, then use this "paint", and clearcoat afterwards?

here's how it looks on raw, i had to take the pic out of focus so you could see the metal flake a little better, don't do this to a raw part because you can't even see it. A dark basecoat will yield better results, helps back the metal flake and make it "pop" more.



i actually used to get all my motocross helmets done in metal flake when i had them custom painted, here's my last helmet i had done. The metal flake was actually mixed in with the paint to do my helmets and the flakes are actually pretty big compared to what i'm using now.

did my stem yesterday, it was matte black....gonna probably strip this, gloss black it and then spray this metal flake



out of all the colors i've tried it's just better to use gloss black as a base coat and the only way around this is to actually mix the metal flake into the color you want instead of the clear.

I really like the way it looks on your stem. I have the exact same stem and I think I'm gonna do my stem like that this winter. My frame is Burnt orange metallic so it'll look crispy with a metallic stem I think.
