  1. This week we're introducing a new storage unit to house the Zero Paints bottles, both 30ml and 60ml. We've produced a drawer for each and the two drawer unit can be ordered with two drawers the same or one of each. Each 60ml drawer holds twelve bottles and the 30ml drawer holds eighteen.
  2. Out of interest how long do you leave masking tape on after airbrushing AK Xtreme, acrylic and lacquer (Zero paints) colour coats?
  3. Chaps, Just had a weird one. A couple of months ago I primed a Tamyia Ducati MH Rep with Zero Paints white primer. It went on to a spotless, pre-cleaned/dried surface. I dug out the primed parts from it's plastic container (got to love the local Chinese take away tubs!) to find that the paint on the seat hump just flakes off! It took about 10 minutes with my finger nail to remove the whole lot! The paint on the tank is fine and I flatted that down with Micro Mesh without any trouble. It's as though the plastic must have had something coating it's surface, but I can't think what. All the parts were cleaned and sprayed at the same time. Anybody have any suggestions?

  4. Hi chaps. Long time lurker here, but don't post much in this section. I'm going to start a vehicle build soon and wanted some advice in painting the body shell. I have seen the beautiful finishes people attain on here, and so thought it was the best place to ask. So, to my questions :- What is the best order to paint the shell in? I know I need to prime, then colour coat and gloss,but how do you keep the exterior colour getting inside the shell? What is the best way to paint the shell? Interior colour first, then exterior, or exterior first then interior? Is it best to attach all the exterior panels before the colour coat is applied, or spray fenders and bonnet/ boot separate? I'm going to be using zero paints " plum crazy purple". This is going to be my first attempt with their paints. I've heard nothing but good things about them. The colour is a metallic, I think, how do you best keep the metallic particles distributed evenly in the paint? Is there a special method, or just shake the paint like crazy, and spray the colour fairly quickly? Sorry for all the questions, but the search function didn't reveal many answers to me. I hope my first build goes smoothly, with your help, I'm hoping it's trouble free. Thank you for looking in. Matt
  5. Hello chaps, I'm looking for some tips on achieving the best results with Zero Paints primers - black in this instance. My first attempt has resulted in a rather rough (almost sandpaper) finish, so presumably it's drying before it hits the surface - should I thin it with some lacquer thinner? Any thoughts or experiences that might help me? Thanks in advance. Andrew
