Truly amazing - they did the 'liquid flames' paintjob on my old Black Sheep ti soft tail - probably one of those bikes I'll really regret selling a few years down the line. I love the etched titanium - I wonder what they could do with my XLM?

from what i could read , its a base coat of powder , graphics with an airbrush , so they must be using ENAMELS of some kind , and then a clear powdercoat

Shame they're not local. Anyone in the UK do anything close to this standard of work?

Slim,

No enamels at all...all powder. Spectrum has a double secrete squirrel technique of using a carrier base to air brush with the powder. They really are light years ahead of the standard spray and bake shops.

If you have a high speed connection, check out the movie of taking a frame from blasting to baking, really cool.

cheers,

rody

powder in a carrier base , NICE .............

i have seen it " melted " in acetone , but dont know if you could airbrush it , was pretty thick , and didn`t stay liquid for long

suppose you could thin it to whatever consistency you wanted though

whatever , they really are way ahead !!!
