DTT BOTM WINNER
Ok so I just got done making this aluminum tank for my Triumph tr5mx project and now I need some advice on painting it. I will be doing it with rattle cans. I have painted a tank before with rattle cans but it was only one color and I used Dupli color Metal Specks paint with the spraymax 2k clear and it came out pretty good. The thing is with this tank it will be two colors so I'm not sure how to go about it. In the photo below my black sharpie line will be a gold 1/4" painted pinstripe then inside of that will be polished aluminum and the rest of the tank will be black. Can someone suggest the best way of doing this. I was planning on masking off the polished area then spaying the gold in the general area of the pinstripe then waiting for that to dry and then putting 1/4" tape over the gold and then spray the black. How long should I wait before I can mask on top of the gold? Not sure what the best ratlle can paint options are. Also I will be using the 2k clear after painting. Included a pic of the other tank I painted.
