    The only way to keep Magic paint from fading is keep the machine in the shed.

    Powder Coating is great, but an oven that size is a little out of my budget! I have seen people using heat lamps to cure the powder, but I'm not sure just how effective it is. I can do powder coating on small items, I have an old kitchen oven in the shop that works great.

    Last night I got my fenders painted, I used an acrylic enamel with added hardener. They came out pretty good, I think. I was wondering how long you guys wait until the stickers can be stuck on? My first thought was a month to get a full cure, but thought Id see what has worked for those who do this a lot more than I do.

    A week of 80 degree weather would be sufficient.
    If it isnt broken, dont repair it.

    Bring them inside your home. Let them sit in a closet for a couple of weeks. If the wife asks, tell her your contemplating some new decorative touches and you need 2 weeks to think about it. Then at the end you can tell her how you whole heartedly agree with her.

    No kidding! The M in my profile picture was painted with that majic stuff. Took no time at all to fade into a disappointing pink mess. Yes i used hardener and it didn't even sit out all the time.. I miss the old valspar restoration series TSC used to sell. Wasn't super high dollar but it lasted. Painted my MTA with it those years back, it sits out months at a time and has hardly faded at all
