Question about 1993 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy

I just did a custom flame job on my bike. I took the mask off to find small spots of color had leaked through onto the black base coat. Also a few nicks in the black, from where I used an exacto knife to trim the masking tape. How do I fix?

I am an experienced spray painter, but I have been out of the game for a few years and things have changed in that time. I am familier with most types of paint, including synthetic, cellulose, 2 pack and...


water base paints are out there but as far i know i think you should error on the safe side and use a resporator with most all paints........ as far as i know they havent fully improved waterbase paints to the point that they hold up on metal correct me if i am wrong when the car companys use them for all cars then i will! ( base coat clear coat is the best so long as you follow the mixtures as directed on the cans ( call some paint suppliers , savage dupont ect they can guide you on most types of paints)

How to spot paint repair your car, etc!


Easy job for anyone in 9 simple steps!
1st) You will want to have a few simple tools.(Sanding paper, Auto Paint, Clear Gloss, A paint gun or airbrush, primer, masking tape and/or masking paper,car wax.)

**** [Note: the directions for each of these tools and/or products are clearly marked when you buy them & ech one's uses is different, so please follow directions for each!]

2nd) You will separate that spot from the rest of your car by masking off that area.

3rd) You will sand that area down to the metal.

4th) You will take your sand paper (Medium grit) and scuff up the area.

5th) You will clean all dust from that area by blowing it off and/or washing it off (Simple soap and water will do), then dry it completely.

6th) You will spray primer the area to be fixed. (one or 2 coats will do.) then let it dry.

7th) You will scuff the area up with sandpaper again (medium grit) then lay your basecoat paint down on it (3 to 4 coats) and let it dry between each coat.
8th) You will scuff the area up again with the medium grit sandpaper and you will spray clear gloss over it (3 to 4 coats) and let it dry.

9th) You will wash clean againthe area and buff to more of a showroom glow!!!

Now you are done!
You can apply these basic methods to most any paint jobs, for they are the basic way an pro auto painter does a good paint job....
Thank you for your time!
Have fun!

I have a 47" rear


This is usually due to a leaking CRT. Or picture tube oxidation in the cooling liquid. Definatly not a job to be performed in the home. The cooling liquid needs to be changed in all three picture tubes. Cleaned inside the jugs and replacement gaskets. Gennerally about 60 to 85 dollars each.
often, the fluid leaks onto the power supply or sweep module and causes other problems.

I'm looking for the manual for the Alps MD-1300 printer, I need to know how to print spot colors


The 1300 prints spot colors the same way as the other ALPS printers. To print spot colors, create a mask or layer using only black with your artwork. Select the spot color you want and the black areas on the mask will be printed in the spot color. Make sure that you check the overlay box so the printer retains the printer. You also need to make sure you are using the ALPS printer driver supplied with the printer and NOT the default Windows plug and play driver.

I want to print metallic gold and gold-foil TITLES on a standard CMYK background with an Alps 5000P. What is the procedure to overlay the spot color where I want to print the gold?


Create a mask or layer for each spot color you want to print using only black. When printing spot colors anything on the mask in black will be printed in the spot color. For foils, print a couple of layers of black ink before you print the foil to get a very good effect. Remember to check the overlay option so the paper doesn't get ejected.

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.

I need to replace my driver side mirror, cause broke


For paint, take your paint code off the inside lip of your dirver side door. Take the number to your local autoparts store, and get the matching paints (unless you need a custom job as in metallic flake). You'll need a clear coat as well as your base.e0fde83.jpg

Sharp AL-1340 has black spot repeating 3 times on each copy.


The problem was indeed caused by a defect in the drum. The drum surface had a small spot where the coating was missing. The drum makes three revolutions during the copying of an 8 X 11 sheet and the defect is seen on the paper as three distinct black spots. The drum had been poorly packaged for shipment by the supplier. A piece of lightproof black plastic was wrapped around the drum to shield it from any light during transiting from the shipping box to the copier. This piece of black plastic was poorly positioned and wrinkled. Additionally, as received, the drum - sealed in a light-proof bag was jammed into the shipping box and I have no doubt that the defect in the drum surface was caused by this poorly packaged shipment. I reinstalled the old drum and hopefully I can finish the current job before the drum counter times-out and shuts down before I can obtain another new drum from that company.
