I just got time to post some photos of the repaint/recolor of my 1997 from camo tan color to blaze green using Plasti Dip rattle cans. It required two cans to do fairing (removed to paint), side panels (removed to paint) , fairing flare panels (removed to paint), and tank (done in place with newspaper masking).
A PO had painted the bike bright yellow which I would likely have retained as like to be seen, but the PO had started a camo repaint by sanding and doing a nice job of the tan base coat. Last thing I'm wanting is to blend in so that's been bugging me although I'll admit that the camo would be very much in character for the KLR. Just a taste thing....
I didn't do the rear fender pending how well the Plasti Dip stands up but it will require another can to do that one. I'll likely mask and do it in place also as that will be good enough.
Pardon for the length as trying to provide complete information and since I'm talking to my friends, others are likely best to simply ignore my posts if the attempt to be complete isn't to their taste.
The finish on my panels was a primer type surface rather than slippery plastic as would be the case for a stock panel so don't know how well the Plasti will adhere to stock panels. Others seem to have indicated success...
I'll add some before and after in case the views are useful. The green photos are inside so it might look a bit different in the sun and can add some of those if someone wishes.
Oh, just recalled: I didn't re-sand the surface but just wiped down with Pro Form General Purpose Adhesive Remover. Those with knowledge of refinishing process will likely be able to improve this procedure.
I laid on 4 or 5 coats as per the instructions with a bit over 30 minutes between coats. Temperature was about 75 degrees F.
A bit tired and grumpy today so apologize.
