Custom paint question

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by Pasito king, Jun 9, 2015.

  1. hi all i'm going to respray my bike in the future and i've already done the front fender and the heat from the exhaust has made it bubble just wondering about why and any way around it... it was an acrylic spray if that helps

  2. Odd how close how close is the exhaust to the guard? How did you prep the guard was it clean and moisture free? I was thinking it may be possible moisture under the paint with the heat may have caused the bubble? Just a guess though

    I painted my bike in acrylic the paint is over 6 years old and looking nice. The only bubbling I have is when I took a blow torch a little to close too it by accident trying to remove a stuck bolt
  3. it may have been possible that my impatiences and a non arid day may have left some moisture that i could not detect its about 2-3 inches away
