Use a small amount of paint thinner and a stiff brush. If you make sure and wash off the paint thinner when you are finished it should not harm any unpainted items it comes in contact with. If you choose to leave the paint there it won't affect your cooling much unless it was put on so heavy that it blocks the cooling fins on the head (pretty unlikely).

Heavy duty oven cleaner works great. With a cold engine, spray it on and leave it longer than the can says to leave it on the oven. When you rinse, the paint will come right off with it and it won't hurt any of the metal. Just make sure you don't get the cleaner on anything you don't want to remove the paint from as it will take ALL paint off!

Can I paint over this with a water based paint


Don't use a water-based paint for any purpose on a motor vehicle.

It can damage the finish of existing paint, and will NOT stick to the original paint. If this is just a stop-gap measure to cover some imperfection(s), and you don't care about perfection in the result, just purchase a can or two of spray touch-up paint and "have at 'er"!!!

Looking for the paint numbers for a blue 77


There is poor documentation on these bikes. A lot of the charts show the GT750's but dont specify the GS.

This chart (link below) is the best you will find, there are a LOT of blues! It may help narrow it down. Perhaps you can take a list of the blues and paint codes and google for paint chips or take them to an autobody supply shop. Hopefully you have something with the original paint for comparison. http://www.ozebook.com/compendium/suzi/suzicolr3.pdf

Best of luck!

My paint gun is pulsating instead of spraying evenly


It looks like you have a Devilbiss SRI.

Probaby the hole in the lid is blocked, The gun sprays, paint gets sucked out, no air can get back in through the little hole in the lid to replace so it stops spraying, pressures even up it sprays abit more, and so on.

Either that or you have a damaged fluid tip.

I want to know how to camouflage a jeep the best


Knowing how to paint a Jeep in camo patterns means you can hide your Jeep in the woods, marshy areas or in open fields without it being easily seen. Using Mossy Oak's Shadow Grass pattern, paint your Jeep with natural-looking shadows and grass blades. The 3-D look of this pattern allows you to easily hide your Jeep from water fowl, doves, deer and big game.

Things You'll Need:
  • Sandpaper (120 and 800 grit)
  • Wax and grease remover
  • Lint-free towel
  • Camo stencil
  • Masking tape
  • Masking paper
  • Respirator mask
  • Automotive primer
  • Automotive paint (black, gray, light tan and brown)
  • Automotive clear coat
  1. Sand the surface of the Jeep with 120-grit sandpaper until the surface is dull. You can use a dual-action sander for this step to speed the process. This removes the top clear coat and prepares the surface for primer. Primer won't stick to a shiny surface.
  2. Mask off areas of the Jeep that won't be painted, such as the windows, tires and passenger area of the Jeep. Wipe the surface with wax and grease remover and a lint-free towel.
  3. Spray primer on the Jeep in three thin coats. Allow each coat to dry completely. Once the primer is dry, use 800-grit sandpaper to sand the top layer of primer until smooth. This leaves a smooth surface for the paint. Wipe again with wax and grease remover and a lint-free towel.
  4. Paint a thin base coat of gray on the Jeep. Cover all of the primered areas on the Jeep so that no primer can be seen. Allow the paint to dry.
  5. Go over the Jeep with brown paint, spraying small areas of brown paint in no particular pattern. The finished effect should look like the Jeep is equally painted gray and tan. Hold the first stencil against the Jeep and use black paint to fill it in. Move the stencil over and paint again. Start at the front of the Jeep and work towards the rear.
  6. Move on to the next stencil and use light tan paint to spray the grass pattern. The grass should start at the bottom of the Jeep and reach up towards the top. For longer grass, don't spray the tops of the grass but instead move the pattern up, spray the stems longer and then spray the tops, making the grass stems long. Repeat this around the Jeep and across the hood. Go back over the grass stems with black paint, lightly spraying a few of the stems to give them a shadow look.
  7. Finish by spraying three coats of clear coat paint onto the painted areas of the Jeep. This protects the paint from UV rays and keep the camo pattern looking good.

Tips & Warnings
  • Paint is best applied using a paint spray gun and air compressor, but canned spray paint will work.
  • Never sand or spray primer or paint without using a painter's respirator mask.

Problem spray painting water based paint


I spoke to a friend who was a spraypainter in his last job, apparently due to the thickness of the paint, I needed a larger nozzle on the gun. I couldnt get a nozzle to suit this gun so I purchased another gun with a cuple of different size nozzles. All seems to be working fine now.
