Frame painting / gluing pictures question
I've got an old steel frame, not too rusted, that I plan on building into a fixed-gear. I'm debating whether to have it painted by a local guy with automotive paint, which would cost a bit of money, or whether to do it myself? If I did it myself I think I'd do something like cover it with postage stamps or pictures, to set it apart and hide the otherwise inevitably-crappy spray can job.
Anyone ever do something like that (links?) And, how would one go about doing something like this -- spray a basic layer of paint, adhere whatever pictures, then spray over with clear-coat?
