Repair - 2007 Vespa GTS 250


2007 Vespa Scooter - After Repair
 John's Vespa scooter needed some repair work and he chose the Spray Max 1K base coat paint along with the Spray Max 2k Clear coat.  He also used the Spray Max Plastic Adhesion Promoter; a wise choice when painting on plastic.

John said:
"Its a 2007 Vespa GTS 250 and I replaced the glove box panel which is the gray colored piece in the picture on top of the old one. Had to order it from Italy. The old one had a chunk missing out of the lower right corner as you can see. I'm extremely pleased with your product. One of the easiest and cheapest repairs I've ever done. Didn't have to clean anything afterwards and the best part is it looks as good as if I used my spray equipment"
Thanks again
John N., San Jose, CA.

Damaged part on the bottom - replacement part to be painted on top.


John used one each of the products listed below:
Vespa Scooter Paint Giallo Lime 928A

John F. in Dallas, Texas, took on a rare project.  One you don't see every day.  As told by John,
"The bike is a 1956 Maico Blizzard. The bike really had only 25 original miles but it's life in Ohio storage produced a rusty project. I did all the paint work but had the metal bits media blasted elsewhere .  I used Polaris silver and granite grey for a amazing like original color, then used glamour clear 2k that was sprayed over hand striping.  I ride it often down here in Texas. Maico street bikes are fairly rare."

700HP Mopar Engine Paint Project


"I began this engine paint project with the finished product in My mind, however as many people know with painting most times comes disappointment for one reason or another. This is My first experience with the 2K two part paint and I have to say It defiantly did not disappoint! I was amazed to watch this stuff flow onto the surface of primer like it had a mind of its own! After setting up and curing it almost looked like it was dipped, it appeared so deep and flawless in the metallic distribution. After posting some pics on My Facebook news My notification alert has gone bonkers! This 440 is getting all the attention it deserves, THANX to 66 AUTO COLOR!!!"
