Touching up an aluminum frame...
Is painting aluminum any different from painting steel?
I have a road frame with some rough patches (no cracks). It's plain black, so my plan is:
*smooth out the bad spots with sandpaper
*shoot a coat of rustoleum primer over the rough spots
*shoot a coat of rustoleum black
*wait 24 hours, clean frame, dry, and then clear coat the whole thing
Anyone have any special tips for Al that I should know?
