  • 2 tone special

    Here's the 2 tone cast alum job I have to do. The raised flames will be mirror black and the rest will be flat black. The flat black takes 20 @ 400 and the mirror 10 @ 400. I'm thinking flat first, then cure for @15 min, out to cool, mask off and shoot the mirror black. Pull part in @ 2 minutes, cool and remove tape and back in for a full cure? Suggestions??

    Thats the way I would do it.

      I thought I'd try the Og flat black first, but after 2 solid coats I'm going to strip tomorrow. Too many pits and rough edges I didn't see. Next KL primer, sand, flat and mirror. I don't have any flat clear, does sound like a good idea. I might try all flat black then gloss clear the flames...we'll see.

        I would coat the mirror black first, then the flat. That way, when coating the flat black you can just touch the edge of the masking so there won't be a heavy build-up of powder on the masking. Because when you go to remove the masking, it could chip with thick build-up. Also when coating the flat black turn the charge down to where the powder just starts to stick, because the powder won't stick to the masking, making removal very easy.
        I have tried the flat clear coat masking, works great if you want to keep the same base color. Base color, clear coat, masking and flat clear coat.

            I thought I'd play around with this for future ideas. I wanted to see how the "brushed alum" would look next to the flat. I'll do the gloss black tomorrow and blend in the edge lines.

                  Nice job on the masking. The gloss/flat contrast will be interesting, but that's a nice look too.

                    I tried to talk him into polished flames with flat or gloss, but he said he didn't want any "bling"!, Oh well..

                            This air cleaner is going to have a copper screen mounted in the front, also.
