Lol, yeah that might be hard to explain  ;)

I'll just be careful when filling up but like I say, it's only ever meant to be a temporary thing. Hopefully it will last a year or so but it's more an experiment to see.

I was wondering about that as you were explaining its application. My leathers have white stained crotch where paint ran on my trackbike. The fellas I was with on the trackday had a great time taking the piss about how excited I was getting out in track that I kept shooting my load each session

I also found out that it's not 100% petrol resistant.

If you let a drop dry it's ok though, but don't stick your finger in it to see if it's gone liquid  :bag

I think people say it takes a few weeks to really harden and then it might resist better though, will see.

I quite like that... Terracotta? colour.

I can vouch in real life it's as gay as John Inman in a tutu but the colour is good, it looks like red oxide primer.

is it just a spray paint? can you get runs with it?



Prep work is just degreasing, so I wiped down with some IPA on a clean cloth and it worked ok.

I might try doing the track bike in it.

I like the idea of peeling it off if it doesnt work - especially on the carbon parts.

Yeah pretty much use exactly the same as a spray paint.

A run is the only thing I find you have to watch out for as you can't sand or polish it back once dry.

If you get a run it's game over until it dries and then you can peel it off and start again.  The trick is a few light mist coats just to get a decent start and then a few wet coats, but not going too heavy to avoid runs.  It can look a bit "orange peel" when wet but as it dries it pulls tighter so will take out some of the roughness, but a full on run is a problem.  Dry finish is very slightly rough feeling matt look, but you can get a gloss coat if you want to make it look like proper paint, but I haven't tried that.  I have heard of people using normal clear coat which then makes it a massive paint to peel off, so not recommended.

I like the stuff, although as Zippy says it's uses are maybe a bit limited.  If you simply want a colour change now and again then it's a good way of doing it, or adding a protective layer over the paintwork etc e.g. for winter maybe.

Plasticote is the company to use for this stuff....

It's also quite good in terms of it being hi-build, so it hides a lot of substrate imperfections.

I've yet to find a use for it for me, I may do some car wheels though.  :eat

Spray.

I got it off Amazon - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06XF1ZRJG/

Like I say, just testing it out really as haven't tried it long term on actual body panels before, only that fly screen.  I've heard people got good results though even using it on alloy wheels etc.

I think (as long as you're not too heavy handed) it will even put up with being jet washed if the surface isn't damaged and it's fully cured.

what is it? and how do you use it?

edit, just looked at the website - so did you spray yours or actually dip it?

Lol, it's not looking the correct colour as it's under the flourescent tubes in the garage - it's definitely more a matt red than brown/orange (or bloody pink)  ;)

Once it's fully cured it's pretty durable.

I used the black on the TDM flyscreen (the 'custom' TDM) which took a pummeling from the weather, insects and maybe the odd stone and it was completely undamaged when I sold it on.

It feels slightly rubbery for a week or two until it fully cures - it's touch dry after a few hours and no problem handling, but will tear easily if you give it some stick until it's cured.  After a couple of weeks it's pretty tough and should last ok.

I saw a youtube vid where someone painted his belly pan with it, and it lasted ok, but being so low it eventually got cut up by stones off the front tyre, so it's not indestructible, but should fair ok higher up the body like this.
