    Mar 9, 2004, 5:06 PM - Paint Question #1

    Hey,

    I have a Jango stye bucket coming and I want to repaint it. Do I sand the helmet down then apply a primer coat, then finishing coats? I was going to use Krylon spray paints for everything. Good idea or bad?

    Thanks

    Bryan

    Definatly sand first, then Primer, then top coat.
    Krylon should be just fine.
    Suggestion though, if you are using chrome spray paint apply several thin coats and allow to dry. If you build up too many coats too fast, the under layers won't cure properly.
    You don't want to pick up your nicely painted bucket only to leave finger prints in it. Plus, everytime something touches it, it will leave a mark.
    So be patient. Chrome paint needs alot of cure time.
    I bought some Chrome duplicolor brand at Wal-Mart and it seems to cure alot faster than Krylon.
    Just my experience.
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks,

    Also, if your using the Chrome paint, make sure the helmet is perfectly smooth!
    Any imperfections will show.
