    I usually laydown an even medium coat of the paint, leave it 10 minutes and then give it another coating, almost as soon as the second coat is down i start to gently heat it up slowly increasing the heat until it starts to cure
    keep the heat gun moving & not too much in one place, but it will get a shit load hotter than you think !!.
    once it's wrinkled you need to let it be for a day to harden. as it's still soft after it has the desired wrinkle effect you want,
    when I first used heat I thought it wasn't gonna work or I'd be burning the paint, but no, it all of a sudden goes and looks great,
    no more waiting for it to work, or wondering is it too cold, too hot, too thin or too thick,

    once you do it & see it form in front of your eyes you will want to coat everything with the stuff,..
    looks good on all sorts of things from bike parts to cameras, cell phones, guns, MagLite's ANYTHING !!...
    remember, the more heavy you want the wrinkle the more paint you use but be careful not to put so much down that it runs,
    it looks shit with runs so be aware of it....
    post pics of your results,
    remove any plastic parts before using the heat or you can melt them,
    if ya want to wrinkle plastic parts just let them cure sitting on top of a house radiator as a heat gun's high temp may damage some plastics.........
    I did loads on my Shovelhead.... the headlight visor after drilling it, fork sliders & callipers, clutch spring switch gear, rotary top of the Transmission, loads of things

    I recently painted this old prism tank that I had lying around for ages.
    I used cheap ass rustoleum rattler cans (like 4 bucks a can). I usually use quality
    shit, but all of My nice paint guns, air brushes, & lots of high dollar paint, even my
    compressor, all burned up in a fire.

    I topped the tank of with some rustoleum matte clear coat & this shit sucks. It sprays
    on okay but It hates gasoline big time. It's not shriveling up or cracking, But there are
    obvious marks made by the gas running down the tank from fill ups.

    *Can any of You guys recommend a descent clear coat (preferably matte or satin low gloss)
    that comes in a Rattle Can, & Does not look like shit when Gas comes in contact with it ??

    Ditto. I used spraymax over my rattlecan job and I've spilled gas on it many times, and there hasnt been a problem so far. Just make sure to clear over the paint real good in the top of the filler hole, I'm getting some peeling there cause I didnt on mine.

    Looks good too, nice and shiny even without sanding and buffing.

    Nice looking tank, That tan color looks awesome with those decals.
    I am going to try and find some of that spray max in a low gloss satin, since all
    of the powder coating & painted rear fender on my bike are all low gloss.

    thanks texasmud & saddletramp for the tip.

    Thanks man, I like it too. It looked real 70's to me in my head. It's just rustoleum camo paint from Walmart with the Spraymax over it.
