    Official Painting a Bike with Auto-Air Paints Thread

    Sorry if this seems redundant, but I've been researching on painting a bike and I'm overwhelmed by the various opinions on various methods. Can we use this thread to cover Auto-Air paints as a cheaper yet durable solution to painting bikes?

    I am restoring a Schwinn Cruiser and would like to paint it (frame, fenders, chainguard) with a pearl or metal flake blue. Can anyone (who's done it) outline the process from stipping the original paint, to primer and sanding, to paint, to clear coating?

    Thanks.

    Search the forum for my recent diatribes about frame painting and refininshing.
    Here's another shot of some Auto-Air Colors I used on an old Powerlite aluminum BMX frame.
    It was ultimately finished with about 4 coats of PPG DCU 2042 clear. TOXIC! wear proper breathing aparatice when spraying!!
    Enjoy!
