    Amateur rattlecanning results

    I know this is a sensitive topic, but I got a Schwinn Suburban which the previous owner had rattlecanned with godawful flat red. I did a lazy-man's rattlecan over that with Dupli-color Metalspecks (Retro red) and managed not to get too much paint on the parts, which I didn't remove. I am very satisfied with the results, and I'm sure if anyone is thinking about rattlecanning and does a better prep/masking job, they'd get a nice color with Metalspecks.

    I'm not claiming this is a good, even job, and I'm also aware it's gonna be trashed in a month, but my wife doesn't ride that much.
