Recommended Posts

Hi all,

going to respray my fantic 240 frame , 

anyone bought any paint of eBay recently? Any recommendations for brands? 
I see there are several available, what’s rustoleum like? Or should I stick to 2k,

Unless you have a professional spray shop leave 2K well alone.

If you don’t have the right safety equipment, it will ruin your health permanently!

Paint it outside on a nice day  with a mask on and you’ll be fine it’s not as if your doing it every day it’s only a one off

2K base is isocyanate ( found in superglue). Having said that. Bike parts can be painted with 2K outside on a nice day wearing a decent face mask ( 3M, Sundstrom, etc) and you’ll be fine . You are  only using the gun for a few minutes. Been doing it for years.  (Use speedy hardener & thinner, do it where overspray can't land on other items, i.e your wifes car,  then take item inside when done to harden off  away from the breeze & flying particles). 

Some people use RAL 3020 powder coat, but this is a bit lairy.    

BTW, Romax UK in Stockton on Tees (01642 619196) can supply correct shade of Fantic red powder coat, which is a bit of a deeper colour than RAL 3020.
