repainting a production board

Postby Timah » Sun Jul 27, 2003 7:44 pm

Anyone know how to go about repainting a production board?
I wanted to repaint a used underground wavetray that I picked up.
I am not a big fan of the red on top and want to change out the foot pads anyways. Is there a way to paint and have a semi durable finish?

Thanks,
Tim R

2pac Automotive paints are really good

BUT definitely wear a respirator and you need a proper workshop to use this paint. Preferbly one with a blower and airfliter that blows all the vapours out. 2pac has been classified as a highly hazardous material known to cause shitloads of respiratory problems.

Its not like fibreglass resin. Its worse. It has been know to cause asthma and permanent wheezing and shortness of breath in many in the automotive industry sometime ago. Some pple can take it but some are also predisposed to be more likely to get asthma.

I did a case study on an automotive panel beater/painter he worked with twopac twice in an uncontrolled environment and now he cant work as a painter ever again. That's how bad it can get.

Good But Highly Hazardous. Just Becareful.Respirator a must

for a low tech method, have a look a Krylon Fusion spray can paint.

It's for stuff like outdoor plastic furniture and is UV resistant.

I used it on my epoxy coated ply board and turned out really nice. Not a great choice of colors though.
I bought red, yellow and blue then played with making gradients.

It dries fast, but, for the best hard shell finish you have to let it cure for about a week.
