Covering your mig.






I was asked how do I "paint" my Migs. I use self-adhesive vinyl 95% of the time. You can spray the entire plane, but, paint is not as durable as vinyl. But I was a little lucky with Johanns Mig. Above are pics of how we "color match" a can of yellow spray paint to yellow vinyl. This small area I sprayed because the "spot welds" look a little untidy if not done right with vinyl. I used plastic primer first coat, then the yellow. Sean.
