Thinking about painting my quiver black to match my new bow. Is there anything I need to do to prepare surface. Any suggestions on a kind of paint to use?
I guess it only looks as good as the job you do painting it. :zip:
Lots of people have had great results with it.
I gotcha, yeah a spray can isn't going to give you the kind of professional coat that I'm sure you can apply but I think most guys are happy with it. Lets face it, it's a quiver. Would I spray paint the body of my truck? No. Well, maybe when it get's a little older. I spray painted some body panels black on my old Explorer that had sun faded bad, painted the wheels white on an old Jeep I had once too. I think for most people's expectations of a quiver hood the Fusion will be more than adequate and the price is cheap.Guess so but I've never seen it done to the level that "real" paints can go. I tried to use it and tried so hard to like it as it saved me $20 a can for the adhesion promoter I use when I paint plastics. It slops on plastics (even with multiple thin coats) so thick it looks sloppy, never lays flat, and gums up sandpaper (even while wet sanding).
Lots of people are happy with stuff cause they did it, not cause its correct or even sometimes finished. Just the thought of hey I did this is enough, lol. If it makes you happy go for it. I'm just a type A and fusion paint just looks like shotty work to me. I was raised anything worth doing is worth doing right the first time.
That door panel was done with a rattle can and not up to some people standards. It came out fine for my daily driver. I wanted something that I could touch up without having to get out my spray gun cause I mud ride and everything else in it. When I do the interior of my show truck it will be out of a spray gun and turn out much better than that. In that one you can see a bit of reflection from the shop light above it (2 bulb fixture and thats the 2 lines on the arm rest). On panels I've done with a spray gun you can actually see the fixture in the panel.
What would you recommend as a good paint? Are we talking paint you've gotta have a spray gun to apply or is there a spray paint in a can that's superior to others?Best is to use good paint. That fusion crap lays on thick and I've never seen it look as good compared to something done with better products.
