    Has anyone used these? I'm going to paint my bike this winter and trying to figure out and acquire what I need. I have rattle bombed a few projects in the past with good results but nothing like this. If I do go this route I will get all of my supplies from him primer, base, flake, and 2 part clear.

    Wow, Roth and his 'Ratfink', that takes me back.

    Don't know anything about this, so no help there. Bookmarked that site, thanx.

    Have you read the 'spraymax 2k' threads?

    Spraying flake is a little tricky even in rattle cans. You can practice with some cheaper alternatives. I've used glitter paint (silver) and some red transparent paint from duplicolor (their metalcast line) and a ton of layers of clear to cover the heavy flake. Not the best way to go but cheap enough to practice with before stepping up to the roth paint systems. Just keep in mind that the 2k has a catalyst, so make sure you wear a respirator.

    Thanks for the tips Gene. I have a small pos compressor and I've been debating about using guns to do my paint job. When I paint I always wear a mask.
