I already posted this in Mtbing, I was hoping for this crowds help aswell.
Ok, So I want to paint my 4300 frame.
my three choices are these: powdercoating, or take it to the autobody, or do it myself.
If I go to the autobody or powdercoat it, it will cost me minimally a 100 dollars. The color I'm currently thinking is tangerine metallic, that honda puts on the element.
My biggest question, is what do people think is my best bet? Should I do it myself with spray paint and clear coat. How should I go about taking the paint off the bike. Thats my biggest problem. I've already had many suggestions. Sand it, use naval jelly, paint thinners. Just wondering if anyone has experience with painting, and can give me the safest, cleanest, and easiest way to get the paint off.
If I was to spray paint it, does it have to be a certain kind of paint? or can I just use anything?
Heres the current pic, everything stripped off. Cleansed it with dawn and used degreaser on greasy parts.
