Read up on stripping and repainting RS Mag forks - it's been done to death on here and elsewhere on retro forums.

The magnesium substrate doesn't like certain paints, or oxygen, and can be nasty if you don't prep it properly.

But having said that, I did paint a pair of Mag 20 legs when i was 15 in 1993 using, believe it or not, a Halfords rattle can and they stayed mint till I sold em about 18 months ago.
