so started off with an 02 ZX7-R (Ninja 750) it was spray painted drips all over it had duct tape and stickers that had been clear coated over and pin stripping.

i decided to finally start stripping my bike and painting it getting it looking all nice .

Photo

[b] i decided just to do it by spray can because im good enough to get away with it so this is literally what i am using.


Photo

so started off with some aircraft stripper, brushed it on let it peel


Photo

then i hosed off the majority of crap that came off and sanded the metal down smooth using 120 grit, once done with the sanding i wiped off the dust and then used rags soaked in denatured alcohol (ethanol) to get off any residue and left over dust.

Photo

ethanol dries quickly so chilled out for couple of mins and then sprayed the primer, 4 coats in.
Photo

then i sanded the primer any high spots or containments / dirt using 400 grit.

Photo

after sanding wiped it down with more ethanol and then the basecoat, started off light and even


Photo
Photo

after 4 coats of base i let it all dry overnight and then proceed to the clear coat
Photo

and once that was done here it they are with clear coats on, but they need to be wet sanded and even'd out a little more had couple of runs in the clear so ill take em down and make it shine like issac hayes.
