Well jump ahead 2 years . The trike still lives but the paint job died ahhh . The mistake wasn't using Rusto but in using their latex primer body filler soaks up water . Over time the water gassed off and bubbled the snot out of the paint.

So off came the paint then Duplicolor paintshop Pro went on . A combo of poor prep work and the thinnest paint ever invented doomed that paint job. So this time around the oil based Rusto primer is on and after sanding the Gloss White will be rolled on. 3 parts paint 1 part Penetrol will be the starting point.

If it doesn't rain cats and dogs tomorrow I'll post some pics of the primered Trike.

The mistake was reading the can label lol . According to Rustoleum the latex primer is for fiberglass and all that . It was a lesson learned the white should look nice anyway .

All in all the paint finish wasn't anywhere near as fragile as the doubting Thomas's had claimed.

Does Penetrol slow drying time ?

Yes, so it gives the paint more time to flow out flat.

You can tell it's running rough in this video . Since this was shot it's gotten new carbs and a new ignition system runs much nicer.

Sorry for the late update lol

Post by trimagnum on May 5th 2012, 5:53 pm

Well at long last here it is











The penetrol did a fair job on the paint it could still use a good cut and buff . Painting it in a building would have made it much nicer .

Still Rolling along

Post by trimagnum on May 31st 2015, 7:30 am

It's been quite a while





The white just wasn't jazzy enough so now it's rolled satin black with carbon fiber vinyl accents . The satin black was hard to make consistent so I won't roll another satin paint job lol .



Couldn't resist printing up a Klingon emblem on the Prusa 3D printer Cool

Thank you very much. It's fun when people ask what kind of spray gun was used . When they are told a foam roller was used that shocked look is priceless .

Awesome! I wonder if the golf course would let you run that baby as your golf cart. Are the exhaust stacks functional?
