  • Yellow NiteMare is Over It's DONE !!!! :)

    Well here is it folks no more Orange. The frame is done in 2 parts
    Caswell's Bright White and another suppliers Fluorescent Yellow. Problem came in when the other folks supplied the WRONG Cure temps and time sheet.. The right times and temps are 392 Degrees for 7 mins not 15 mins or 325 degrees for 10 mins. Hmm the sheet I received said 400 Degrees for 15 mins, Problem was it was burning the yellow and turning it Orange...

    The color is Hard to photograph as well as apply
    Want to thank everyone again for all the Help..
    Thanks folks...

        Jim:
        I know you stripped it & reshot the frame. Did you try to re-powder over the orange before you stripped? I ask, as I am doing some Ford model T spoke rims using the Caswell "vanilla" powder & the samething (orange in spots) happened to me. I was going to try to reshoot the powder over the orange & then cure at a lower temp?
        Thought I would ask your results first.

          The powder I was using was a Top coat over white, But I think you will have the same problems it will bleed thru as the 2 will melt together and the other problem maybe you will get the coat to think and have a chipping problem...
          Best to do it right and start from scratch...
          Let use know how you make out..
