Question about PC. Can you achieve those really sick dual tone type colors with it? I'm thinking no because it is done in a three stage process with paint... Oh, by dual tone I mean the color changing type paint. I'm going to rattle-can my battery box with a three stage I found, but, I'd like to get a frame job to match it. Thanks for any input.

(I tried doing a search but I couldn't figure out a search parameter that would accommodate this particular question and I figured this would be the best spot to ask. :) )

Oh and for the "chrome" powdercoat...It needs a top coat because it's not resiliant to UV rays and will yellow without it...But with each top coat it gets darker and darker, and will look more like silver


Single stage chrome doesn't need a clear top coat, though.

This is do-able. A metallic base coat with a translucent top coat is what you're looking for here.

I'd like to do my front pipe set for the BR in original
PARROT YELLOW which is damn close to SCHOOL BUS
Orange that I can tell. Can anyone tell me the RAL number
for Honda color Y-180 PARROT YELLOW? I have a brand
new Front Pipe set for my wrecked BR and would like to
weld some peices to it before the powder coating job.
Want to make a dash board for gauges, custom turn signal
mounts and some crash pegs and have them welded onto
the Pipe Set.

Yes, "flip flop" colors are available with more and more coming out all the time. I haven't tried any yet, but when I do, I'll let you know the results...

I've tried the lab metal for filling small dents in gas tanks, but it bubbled like crazy when the powder was curing (says it's good for 420F for 20mins for one time PC exposure...) I'm still playing with it, I have a fuel tank from my vintage XR75 project that I've filled a few dents on, going to try outgassing it at about 350F for a while before coating.

Got some flip flop powder in today and tried t out on my 1970 Honda Z50A project. A camera can't actually capture a flip flop paint but here's a couple pics. In real life it flips from a bright green in direct sunlight head on to a dark green to a bronze kind of colour at an angle.

from what i hear on some pc'ing forums, its not at all worth the money. only glows for a real short time, and is a real pain to get even.
