Painting magnetic dust cover tips?

Recommended Posts

Hello so I’ve just purchased the View 31 chasis and I am interested in painting a logo onto the magnetic dust cover that fits on the top of the chasis using metallic paint.  Just wondering whether this is workable without using duplicolor but instead perhaps another laquer or high heat metallic engine paint?  It looks like the cover has a thin coat of rubber already oem’d onto it but I’m not sure, any one know?  ...or can offer any advice or tips in this process?  Would the paint likely crack from the flex?  Or has anyone tried this before?

 

cheers!

Hi,

Best advice I can give you:

1. SUPER light coats will be required, if you block or apply to much material where it will cover the holes, it will be crap.

2. Several coats will be needed, again, the key is to not cover over the holes when apply your material.

3. Spray at a good distance, do not spray close, it will be too much to close.

4. Test spray before you apply to this to something else to understand how the material is coming out, make sure no clogs and the material comes out light, not spray chunks if you know what I mean.

Good luck with the DIY, if you do light coats and let it dry it should be great, no need for clear and should still be flexible granted I would take better care for it than if it had nothing anyways.
