Alright, I'm looking to paint my 05 Gsx-R. I've painted a few things before with rattle can. and most of them have turned out alright... I'm wanting to buy some of thise killer cans candy paint in a can... You can buy the kit that has like 13.5oz can of basecoat, 13.5oz can of candy, 13.5 can of clear... I didn't know if that would be enough or how many kits I should get... What's the trick to spraying this? Looking to order this and get started in the next few days, any input would be great...

Lol, well, if I had ever painted anything with a gun before I would. I wouldn't know where yo start, what to do, how to mix, etc. I just figured this stuff is supposed to be automotive paint in a can.

You can do it because the cans are real paint with catalyst in them & they spray nice but DAYUMN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF ARE DOING ????????????



Just get a Touch up spray gun & do it the real way - It wont cost muc more & the results will be way better ................

Does it have to be Kandy? Alot of nice base pearls out there and maybe a bit easier to spray then the kandy if its your first job.

Harbor freight has some decent spray guns for cheap and always on sale. I usually use them for primer but should do the trick since you will be using it very minimal.

Good luck!!!
