Hey mrcpea, thanks for your comment, and glad you enjoyed viewing my thread
, those pots are the paint remover and the brush to apply the paint remover on the frame.
As to spray the frame I used rattle cans under coat and spray (sprayed like 3 to 4 layers of spray) and applied two layers of lacquer after a few days of the last layer of spray. Wet sanded the frame and applied polish.
Many thanks for your reply.
I have a Kona Lava Dome that I want to do similar with, when time allows.
I'd be grateful for any advice/suppliers of products you used for removing the paint, filling frame ,sanding down & type of paint/lacquer "rattle can" that you used. Also your wet rubbing technique.
I'm VERY impressed with the finish & hope you can help
I stripped down the bike to just a frame and fork and used the normal paint remover bought from a normal iron monger.
Once all the paint is removed from the frame, sanded down all the frame to have a nice and clean frame (forgot the number of the sand paper, but if you ask the iron monger for sure will help you out).
Sprayed a few layers of undercoat and left the frame to dry for a few days, and then sprayed the main colour on the frame (3 to 4 layers of spray) and very important to leave the frame to dry out. The rattle cans I bought them from a shop that supplies varies types of colours that can also be ordered.
After a couple of days left to dry I applied a few layers of lacquer (Wurth lacquer), you need to be very careful when applying lacquer or you will end up with a big mess.
Once all is done, wet sanded the bike with a 1500 sand paper and polished the whole frame.
Hope this helps you or anyone out.
You need to be very careful when installing back the parts as rattle cans spray can be very delicate. My opinion is that you do not apply lacquer near the cranks, BB and seat post.
