My head repaint job on my 81 Spectre 1100 was a disaster. I used the wrong primer and all of the paint began to bubble and burn within 5 minutes. I had to remove the head once again and blast all the paint off. Now I'm totally confused as to what primer I should use on this hopefully final goaround. Here is a link to my project write-up
One person told me to use a self-etching primer used in marine applications. It has a green color to it. Will it handle the heat?
Obviously I can't use that cheap gold paint I found at wal-mart. It simply started burning once the temperature began to climb.
Should I be looking for a single-stage gold paint that Kawasaki used?
Thanks for any advice I can get.
