Rearsets Painted!

After seeing a bunch of guys on here doing this, I decided to take some time and paint mine as well. Started off by sanding everything down. Follow that up with some primer , then I used some Dupli-Color Textured Metallic paint. Then some clear coat in a can, and BINGO!!! I couldn't afford after market rearsets this winter, so this was the next best thing...

I happen to be an automotive refinisher at daytona toyota. I have painted thousands of cars, bikes etc.. The problem with (rattle can(puff can(spray bomb( spray paint) or whatever you want to call it. Is that anything that comes out of a can does not contain catalyzer. or hardner. otherwise it could only be used only once and would harden up in the can. therfore it will not hold up over time! espicially on something like pegs where your feet are constantly rubbing against them all of the time. Try having them painted at your local autobody shop. Small private shops only, dealerships wont touch em. or even powder coated. It might cost more but it will be worth the money. You will see how embarrasing it is in a couple of months when it flaking off. But dont worry a little laquer thinner will remove the paint.

Yeah i kinda figured that eventually that It will wear off, but until I get some extra for rearset it'll have to do...
Even the clear coat stuff in a can won't help it? There's a few guys on here that have done them and seem to been having really good luck so far with not having them wear off?

I had a friend sand blast them down. Think that's the best way, or it'll just take some time if you do it by hand... The paint I used was Dupli-Color Textured Metallic paint. Found it in WalMart, it has like some gritty feeling in the finished coat almost like grip tape. Pretty neat shiat. Then just some clear coat over the top when the paint was totally dried! Like said before, this will not last forever, I'm sure of that! But I'm hoping to get through the summer with it????

That's why I love this site sooo much! I've gotten soo many ideas from the other members on here. The exhaust is an Mcm exhaust. I got pretty cheap from an guy off ebay that didn't want it anymore. Here's their web site if you want some more info on them!
