    So I own a hydrographics company. I have refinished a few mods so far just testing durability. All have been silver bullets, but any paintable surface can be done. I am looking for opinions to decide how I proceed with refinishing mods. There are TONS of different patterns and can be done in just about any color. finish is automotive grade paint/clear. thanks in advance.

    I like how many of those come out. Not sure on which direction is best to go as far as patterns though.

    Which clear auto finish do you use?

    Looks excellent but how well does the clear hold up :) I was thinking of having one of my tubes done up with Hydrographics and some Thremochromic paint.

    I have a few different clears that I use, but most use dupont. The thermochromatic paints are cool. But I've been thinking about doing one in electroluminescent paint.

    Put up an add offering to paint mod's and other small parts .
    Keep your price inline and you will do well.

    The weave pattern would look awesome on a ZNA lite or even a carbon fiber. Could Cerakote clear work in this application?

    I am willing to be your first customer. PM me and will talk:)

    I am working with cerakote/cerakote clear but it's not nailed down yet. Cerakote is very tricky due to the ceramic in the paint. Pm'ing you know

    Duracoat clear works better over hydrographics.
