Hi 1slowhand,

Could be an issue with the paint not mixing properly. Suggest thoroughly shaking the can for at least two minutes.
If it's cold where you are painting then warm the can but do this carefully. You don't want the can to explode. Perhaps sit the can in warm water for a minute then shake again for a few more minutes to get the warmed paint properly mixed.

Again, be careful when warming the can. Use warm water, not boiling. As an alternative, sit the can in direct sunlight for a minute. The aim is to warm the contents of the can without causing the can to explode due to too much internal pressure.

If it is humid then that will also cause problems. Try painting on a warm dry day with low humidity.


Cheers, Paul
Sydney, Oz

I have been experiencing this issue with different TS paints as well. I had wondered if the paint was old or if me having left it in the garage to go through different temperatures had affected the paint.

Has anyone given any thought to the application of the carbon fiber weave on the tub of the 333SP model. According to the pictures on the MFH site and some comments on another forum you are to paint the tub black, apply decals, spray gunmetal over the decals and then immediately remove them? So I'm getting from that that the decals are really stencils and you are spraying the weave through the decal? Which then gets taken off and clear applied.
Honestly not sure my skills (and luck!) are up to such a thing. Is it easier than it sounds?

There are a couple of packs on ebay.it right now just in case you haven't seen them.

(for others who may be in a similar situation it is sometimes helpful to search the individual country Ebay sites as some sellers do not list internationally)

It looks good, but it's also not that easy to spot. The pictures are really very small. It may also be because I wear glasses, sorry.

The Senna figure also looks good. Maybe you can tell more about that.

Thanks.

Looks perfect to me. Thanks for sharing.
