    Default paint before/after sikaflex?

    I am in the planning phase (advanced) for a DIY canopy for my Colt.
    It will be a steel frame with alu plate and doors.

    When I glue the alu plate to the frame with sikaflex, do I paint the frame first or should I glue to bare metal and paint afterwards ?

    Good question

    Now before all the DYI experts answer I suggest you talk to Sika directly

    Donít blame yourself over past mistakes. Itís like driving down the N1 while looking in the rear view mirror only.
