    Default Does canned spray paint works for bike

    It sounds good to repaint one's bike by himself.

    Does canned spray paint works like the job that is done by some professional painter.
    I am asking in sense of its durability (will it survive long enough) and will provide the same look.

    Can we use it or not.

    did once, on my normal old yamaha....... there are spray cans available in market that are actually for motorbikes. It was red mettalic, with great shine.

    however, they are not long lasting, as the paint peels of if sharp edged material touches.......not that easily but it does happen.

    Good for short term, and being quite cheap.

    How many cans did u use. I think thick coating might help in durability. I will look in market for motorbike spray paint.

    brother these spray cans are not that tough to stand the tough conditions that a fuel tank of bike goes through. Paint on fuel tanks of bikes is sprayed thick with several coats and then baked to make it hard.

    Repainting a bike involves removing previous paint, denting and very neat sanding to make the pre paint surface smooth, again several coats of paint and baking.

    Spray paint in a can wont give you permanent shine and may come off very easily with the petrol spilled while re filling your bike.

    recommendation! dont go for spray paint its useless, repainting by professional painter isnt so expensive and may be done within 1000 - 1200.

    Take care
