Painting NoSno Alloy Trucks

Post by Daleyg3 » Fri Oct 18, 2013 7:29 am

This is just a visual thing but I'm currently building a Nompa and have got a set of nosno alloy trucks on the way.

I'd quite like to paint them black.. what would be the easiest and cheapest way to do this?

I have no knowledge on arty farty stoof :)

The problem is the paint will chip mate. I have used many different types of paint to paint the anti roll bars and brake calipers on my car and Hammerite stood up to the abuse best. Tougher than all the off the shelf high impact paints I tried and it's a lot cheaper.

I'm aware it will chip, not fussed really, can always be redone every year or so.. Hammerite, awesome, thanks!

may cost a bit more and if you're *sigh* bothered about weight you won't be intrested but have you ever thought about plasticoating them?

^^^ Yes. Definitely more chip-resistant than paint.

Never tried it. But what about some type of 2-part polyurethane finish?

they look best with a good rock polish. My rear alloy looks more like a sponge after 7 years of abuse.
