The Motto is - "to a quality not a price"

Mural and motorbike paint jobs occur over time - the process is complex, yet the outcome is stunning. After finalizing a design with computer mock ups the prep works begins. No short cuts here as the best finish in the world is useless without proper foundations. As a result of working by the ‘motto’ I’ve deduced that House of Kolor products are pretty much as good as it gets from primers to top coat. Bare metal panels are filled and spray filled then cured. This surface is sanded with 3M wet & dry when hard. Then it’s in with the primer. After curing then sanding again the colour is applied over a sealer which is sprayed onto the primer surface to provide a good adhesion to the colour and prevent bleed into the primer .A lot of painters don’t bother with this but it is an essential stage. The colour will then be coated in at least 3 coats of urethane clear coat. This will be sanded for either a top coat of clear or more colour in the form of a graphic design. If a design is the case it will be coated in a clear which will be sanded to a level surface, removing any edges created by the masking. This may be repeated several times for a complex design. When the design is complete the work is coated with a Hi flow urethane clear for low ‘orange peel’ effect. However this is never fully achieved and so the surface is sanded with 1500 grit and a firm block. It is then sanded with 2000 grit for easy compounding. Then it’s mechanically polished and then buffed. Then a hand polish and it’s all yours!
