Anyone have any luck removing the top layer of paint to expose the original paint? I bought a bike with a crappy repaint job and just wanted to bring out the stickers/logo painted underneath, then have the rest powder coated.
I've tried sanding, brass wire, rubbing compound, and a careful chisel. These methods work, but are very tedious and unless you're very careful, tough not to go all the way through to bare metal.
Thanks for any advice.
Acetone, it turned this:
without harming anything! orig paint is fine as are the orig decals>
The orig paint was already chipped and scratched underneath the rattle can paint job, but orig is orig, no matter what.
You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
