bike painters arnt van painters........ya get some of those guyz on a big surface there all thumbs......ya have to know how to layout a van and know how deep you can go with detail or your spending way to much time and money.

Doc cyber these guys started on vans and cars but then got into the bikes because the $$$ is a little different.Lot more painting on a vehicle and you can get the same money doing a small job than a big job.

Yes Flash did my Friends Van Ed (FLY From vans on the run)yrs back.

Gorske was big in the 80's Roger Rock rolla has the orange van sinsational.

Art Bondage from Can't remember the club.(pioneer vally club that was it.He had the Van Naturally with the ski mural and had chrome front disc brakes.
Was A big Nationals Winner in the 80's.He Worked at custom coach in conn.

I need a picture of this van naturally Does anyone remember this ride.

The list gos on.

yea ya got to find the older guyz......most the young painters i know today wouldnt even know where to start to paint a van....especialy with the materials today...this isnt the old lacquer days where you can just spray when you want..with todays high dollar paints and thinners and the paint windows they have to deal with(this is the amount of time between painting and then having to sand again so delamination doesnt happen)........its a very high skilled job now.

I know a lot of guys who would attempt it..but if you havnt done big surface areas and have had enough time to see if what you did lasted.....right now there are a lot of paint failing out there because this stuff is so sensative to specific application.

Im not saying there arnt guys out there what im saying is.......there not all trained to paint large areas.....again.....its quite a taske to even spray these big rigs with these new urethane paints.......and thats just a simple bodyshop paint job.....if your adding flakes....pearls....candy colors....over lays and your building a very difficult layerd custom paint job.....vans are not for the beginner or bike painter.....just a bit of caution when asking for paint credentials

here is the critical step.....your base is laid your clear is done....now you have to sand it for airbrushing......now you have to remove that scratch before you airbrush or your spraying on a scratch that can come back thru the airbrushing...but if you clear to remove the scratch you only have a 12-16 hour window before you have to top clear or re-sand.......now what.......if you dont know how to keep your windows open you will risk the job delaminating...or your pulling off a simple airbrushing.....not an easy skill to pull off.

again this isnt the old lacquer dayz when the thinner softened the under layers and etched into them...this is a new paint that requires a sand scratch or fresh paint to cause layers to attatch themself.

so..if your going to get your rig airbrushed and your going for a big paint job...find someone who has done it before and succesfully
