It's not about what you ride, it's how you ride it!

Dont start mountain biking, its as addictive as cocaine and twice as expensive!

I swear these trees are magnetic...

Money cant buy skill.

@baggyferret: yeah Im goimg to use a mix of the matt amd semi gloss laquer to protect it. haha thanks ive gotten pretty comfortable here, though there are a few people who do everything properly but take a bit longer and theres a few people who do it fast but half arsed and the boss seem to like the jobs done fast even if it means re doing it so yeah not 100% sure if that will work as I do the jobs to how id like them done if it was my own haha. I have looked multiple times on google at airbrushed helmets actually haha found some pretty cool ideas on there! should get some painting done next week!

@baggyferret: yeah use strainers for everything bud. Ive heatd of the flatting it bavk and doing another coat but never heard a name for it im looking for a super smooth satin finish. I dont get chance to do any painting in work times so I think the only way to get me into painting is to do it in my free time and make sure I do a decent job and then they might let me do some painting during work? I will post pics bud! not 100% on what exavtly to do on my helmet hahaha

@baggyferret: Ive 'non sand' primed the helmet and ps4 bits tonight after work ill upload photos when its done still going to sand the ps4 top and the flatter areas of the helmet just to get it really smooth then a base coat of black on the helmet for airbrushing and the ps4 stuff will be painted a dark steel grey or dark battleship grey. we use waterbase paint because its supposed to be better for the environment but still ise solvent based primer, laquer and we clean the guns with thinners aswell so not a massive difference. Yeah I have asked him a lot of things and ive learbed a lot but need to learn so much more haha, I helped him airbrush his car trackday helmet and it turned out pretty sweet :tup:

@baggyferret: Got a few water base paints from work I need to thin down to try in my airbrush (any tips? I have water base thinners just dont know how to find out how much to put it) and I have some candy powder mixed in with a transparent base which on white is like a baby blue but on grey or black its lime a greeny-blue. Got a nice silver aswell which will be great for when I get some transparent paints theres a guy at work whos into the metal flake and stuff like that but hes leaving at the end of next week so will ha e to learn it all myself really

@baggyferret: @baggyferret: yeah after explaining multiple times that it will fit because ive had it on 2 fox shocks without a problem. it fits perfectly... i never had an issue with it clashing with the piggy back it was a lot closer to clashing with the insides of the seatube where the shock goes through than with anything else so I think he changed his mind and made up excuses to send it back and in the end he just stopped replying... does that count as 'figured out' haha
