remove all stickers and clean it up
Find a good area to paint and string it up, remember to think about over spray.
Next I used acetone to clean the entire surface of the bike, wear gloves for this, and be sure not to touch the bike after you've cleaned it.
I love the smell of Acetone in the morning
Finally I was ready to spray!
Rock N Roll!
Since the bike was 2 toned I decided to go ahead and do a white primer coat to add durability and to make sure the final coat came out nice and even. I used Rustolium primer.
Multiple light coats of primer work best
primed up and ready for paint
After the paint dried off I spot checked the bike for any runs or missed areas. I did find a couple, so I sanded them down and did a little touch up. Then I waited for it to dry one more time, wiped it down with a clean rag, and got read to do the custom painting.
Now I ready to get crazy with the paint job!
