Any recommendation for a strong clear coat? I rattle canned a frame (primer, color, and clear coat, multiple layers of each, occasional wet sanding, let cure for a week before building up) and the lock is rubbing some paint off. Thanks! (I have access to an indoor airbrush if that is an option)
I don't know too much about painting bikes, but I do know that you want a clear-coat to be the same type of paint (enamel, latex, etc.) as the main color coat. So check the paint type of your rattle-can.
Yes, i sand blasted then palm sanded the frame (it is steel). Looking back at my calendar, it definately cured for longer than a week before I put it together (more like a month!), with primer, paint, and clear coat.
What wax are you using? Is it more for shine or pro protection? How are you applying it? I ran to lowes and picked up a clear enamal and airbrushed it on with sanding in between and the frame is sitting waiting around.
