This is what I used, 380Kms and no sign off any rust yet. Although that could change once they start gritting the roads.

The idea is to paint it just before the new prospective owner comes over to look at the scoot.

The paint they used on the SR-71 Blackbird works very well. But is very hard to get. My Sgt in the USAF in the 70's had a gallon that he gaurded with his life and his pipes were spotless.

He probably didnt get speeding tickets as that paint is supposed to elude radar.
I'd like to paint the front of my scoot and car with that bird paint - hell I'd do anything to fool the radar guns.

Oh Jialing, you dont know how true that statement is. I do a lot of work in Mexico several times per year.

I was down at the powder coating factory today and sought out some info about powder coatings and it appears that the stuff they use is plastic. Sad


yeah they give the metal object a charge (either - or +) then give the fine PVC powder the opposite charge, and then blow the powder at the object, and because they're oppositely charged, the poweder sticks to the metal, then they put it in a massive oven (its not actually an oven but does the same job) then heat it up and the plastic melts and gives an even coat to the metal.

don't mean to be patranising if I am....sorry

This factory does it different, they make display frames, first the frame is placed into a furnace like contraption for the frame to be heated up, it is then take to a very large vat full of powder which appears to be liquid but isnt. they place the frame in the powder move it around and hey presto when they pull it out its evenly coated.
It's then put on a rack to dry. Razz

I had a quote recently to get my rack shot blasted and powder coated black for 25. About the same price as a few cans of paint!
