u should put the metal parts in a 350* oven for like 10-20 minutes to make it harden and it will stay on nice.

Yes you are a moron. Prepare to have that paint chip off the first time you use it, and prepare for your resale to drop below 150 dollars

If you use spray paint use the more expensive auto body spray pant. Start by cleaning the parts well. Then use about 2 coats of autobody primer. Then use your desired color. Put enough coats so that it looks even. Finally use about 4 coats of clear protective paint. Make sure you follow the directions on the can.

The difference between hardware spray paint and auto body spray paint is huge. I would never buy spray paint from a hardware store again.

Good luck.

Not at all. Aluminum requires special aluminum paint, and it's:

a) expensive

b) hard to find (mostly for aeronautic or marine purposes)

c) small selection of colors

d) complicated and difficult to apply


If you use "regular" paint, even Fusion, your gripframe will oxidize (like rusting, it will expand and flake) and your paint will chip off. It will also change the tolerances of the aluminum.

my friends stepdad does different kind of custimizations on cars/bikes and stuff and he came across aluminum one day and said almost the exact same thing.

chemically bonded paint, it embeds in the metal, doesnt coat the surface like krylon. guaranteed to last a lifetime.

For the frame, read this and follow the instuctions.
Best way to strip a frame
When I painted my body kit, it didn't look so good. You might want to take an exacto knife, put it over a fire for a little bit and cut off as much webbing from the body kit as you can, until the black webbing is gone (be real careful with the fire and the knife, using a candle outside is probably safer than using a lighter inside the house). Then, take sandpaper (first 100, then 160, then 220) and sand everything down until it is super smooth. You should be able to paint the body and not have it look so bad. I haven't painted mine yet because I can't get any good spraypaint. Also, when your spray painting it, try to get the whole thing covered the first time, and try not to do too many coat, because the paint will start to dry and have drip marks and all that bad stuff. So get the whole body covered, check to see if you missed any spots, and check AGAIN. I've spray painted my body kit and frame many times, and each time I had to use paint remover and take everything off because it looked so bad. PM me if you have any more questions

Sand it.

Prime it.

Paint it.

Clear coat it.

Bake it.

Take your ****ing time.

Really light coats, allow 24 hours for each coat dry. If your paintjob takes less than a week to complete it's going to chip.
