    Temporary Bike Paint?

    I know I know... strange question, right? Probably not even classifying as a "Bike Mod" since it's temporary but... here's what I want to find....
    I'm looking for some kind of paint or paste... whatever .... to completely cover part or all of my bike and make it a different colour for about 2 days. Any suggestions? The colour I'm looking for is pink. Also want to do my helmet. The concern is that I dont want to actually ruin or stain the original paint colour or finish in anyway. I've also thought of maybe putting some kind of protective layer over the real paint so as not to damage it.

    If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

    Thank you!!!

    Regards,

    CJ

    talk to nigel at draken enterprises.

    they use temporary paint on all kinds of things for the movie industry.

    cosworth's old srad 750 was painted black and used in dark angel.

    they are near the still creek home depot. www.drakenent.com

    Cool. Thanks Doug. Hopefully it's not too expensive!

    Speaking of latex... regular old interior latex wall paint will probably work well...and it's cheap.
    It's water soluble, but when it's dry it takes quite a bit to get it off.
    If you wax your bike first, then it should peel off like the picture above.

    Of course, I suggest trying it on an inconspicous area first....and hope you don't get stuck in the rain.

    the paint nigel uses is vegetable based. it washes off with water, even after drying.

    they do a lot of prop vehicles for television. little shows like smallville. they know what they are doing.

    how 'bout wrapping it in a non permanent decal. I priced out having an F350 full size pickup done and they were talking like $100 bux for the truck....bike's gotta be cheap! you can also have the decal customized to whatever you want...just a suggestion.
