    Advice for painting panto areas

    I have a frame which has been resprayed yellow. It has panto on the fork crowns and seat stays and I'd like to do the panto areas in either white or black paint. Is there a easy way to paint the panto areas?

    I painted mine with a small paint brush, then did a quick wipe off with a clean rag. If you go fast the cloth wont get down in the indention. Might have to wipe off a couple times

    The ideal paint to use is one-shot.

    I'm not pokey, but I'm certainly not speedy... sorta half-fast, I guess...

    Use one-shot and wait for it to set-up slightly, then wipe the thin excess off the surrounding area.
