Kits for Motorcycles and Cars
We offer a variety of kit sizes appropriate to your project. In general we have kits designed for motorcycles and cars. It is the same paint but in different sizes which are more appropriate for the vehicle being painted. Motorcycle paint kits or "moto" paint kits as you will see them referred to on the site as are built around quart sizes. Quarts of paint are commonly enough material to paint most motorcycles. Larger bikes such as touring bikes with full fairings and saddle bags may need two motorcycle kits in some cases.
Car Paint Kits are built on gallon sizes which are needed for covering most production vehicles on the road today. In fact, depending on the size of the vehicle and how much if it is being painted you may find that you need additional material beyond the car kit. There is such a wide variation in the size of vehicles that it is impossible to make a "one size fits all" kit. Our car kits typically handle the outside an jambs on the average mid sized car, jeep, and 2 door pickup. The amount of material used will also be influenced by the color you choose, and your painter's equipment, technique, and skill level.
