|Repainting your Vespa and doing it correctly can be one the most rewarding of projects you will ever do. I am no expert but I will try to give you the information needed to at the very least get you started. The secret to achieving a successful result is in the preparation. I can not stress the importance of good preparation. Sure it is |
tedious and it is easy to cut corners but belive me (becuase I have tried) just throwing some paint will only make the job harder - howvere if you take the time to prepare properly you will be rewarded with a good result.
The first thing to do is to decide on which type of paint you are going to use for your re spray. The most commonly used paints today are 2 Pack and Acrylic Lacquer. Acrylic is by far the easiest and safest for the home handyman to use. The following are the pro's and cons for each;
Acrylic Lacquer Pro's
Acrylic Lacquer Con's
2 Pack Pro's
2 Pack Con's
You will agree that when you wiegh it up it seems that Acrylic is really the only choice for the home handyman. The main reason is that the 2 pack paints will need a spray booth and safty gear. However if you have access to a spray booth then the finish of a 2 pack paint is far superior.
In this series of How To Giudes we will provide cover the following

Part 2 Paint Stripping
