I am currently overhauling a mountain bike and I am at the process of frame paint. My goal is to either:
1. Remove all paint and leave the frame with the bare metal (which looks pretty cool) and add a protective finish, or
2. Repaint the frame.
Through trial and error, I have learned the following:
-Removing ALL paint from the frame with Steel Wool will take forever. Thinking of trying a paint removal chemical.
- I read that by just making the existing paint rough (removing finish) with the steel wool will help new paint hold better. Not sure if that is accurate.
Any insights on either of my goals above would be greatly appreciated.
