I usually paint myself with cans on the washing line(when its a warm day)but as you know paint chips far to easy.So I thought I would pay for a proper job.It cost a little more than if I had painted it,but then I didnt spend hours stripping the old paint off,and Im sure these boys have smoothed the chain suck over for me.
I do enjoy painting though.

Cheers

I also find spraying bikes very satisfying (though agree powdercoating is harder wearing)

My rattlecanned 92 Bravado (soon to be re-done plain yellow with decals replaced etc)

Also my recently re-done 91 Clockwork.

Car paint does chip easily but i've found it a bit harder wearing if gone over with Plastikote enamel/acrylic laquer (sold in B&Q)
