I have scratched mid fairings so I bought myself an hvlp system on amazon. The sad thing is that I only have a slight idea (sanding, primer, base coat, clear coat...) on what to do or what to get to get the job done.

Is there anyone here to give me a hand? Any previous thread, site, whatever? Please, don't tell me to ask on autozone, I'm not based in the US!

All the best,

Download this manual Basics of basics: http://www.autobody101.com/

Then surf around in their forum area, just about every question you can possibly have will be covered in there. TRUST ME, I was in your shoes just 2 yrs ago.

If you have any specific questions AFTER you read up, shoot them my way and Ill try to help.

Gd luck!

basically it's real easy. remove stickers first. then if you dont need to fix any scratches in the plastic proceed to scuff the existing finish with 600 grit sandpaper. after you get that complete clean it up and remove dirt and wax with some remover made to do such. then you are ready to shoot it with some paint.
follow the data sheets that come with the paint for the proper mix ratios and flash times.
