I use their clear coat exclusively (part number USC01). I have been mixing metal flake and different pigments with clear coat to get a lot of the cool effects I do on the scooters. You cant tell from the pictures, but a couple of the scooters have a "color flop" meaning that they change color depending on the angle you view them from.
Working with paint products like this does take some practice, a good HVLP paint gun, and the material is not cheap so I might recommend going with something a little more basic if youre just getting into custom painting. You can achieve some real cool effects right out of a spray can. Check out these products.....all of which can be found on Amazon.com.
1) Kustom Canz spray paint. They have all types of cool paint. From flakes to pearls these guys have a ton of super cool shit. And it shoots right out of a spray can. Super easy. Professional results. Just be sure to read and follow then directions.
2) SprayMax 2k Glamour Clear . This can of clear coat paint has a bladder inside with hardener in it, so when you are ready to use the can you push this button on the bottom of the can, it breaks the bladder and the 2 materials inside are allowed to mix. This is ideal because 2 part paint is much more durable and has a nicer gloss than 1 part paint. Make sure to get the "glamour" clear...it has a super high gloss and will make your base coat look super rich and deep. Spray 2-3 coats, the last coat as heavy as you can without running the paint. Let it dry over night and youll be impressed with he results.
Ill do a write up on some paint techniques soon and hopefully inspire some people to create some awesome scooters. Gimme a few days. Ill post it on this thread.
I've tried but it did quite the opposite. Was very slow around 10mph...max. but getting it into a m365 fork was a challenge in itself lol.derlwaller wrote:I was wondering if anyone had swapped out a Lime S motor on a M365 and had a power boost, similar to the bird zero swap. They look identical (lime S motor and Bird Zero motor). If anyone does do it , let us know how it goes!! Thanks DW
