For those interested in seeing an example of repaint on the cheap...
Keep in mind I have some Automotive Refinishing Experience, the only difference is the size of the project. To make things simple, I used air brushing equipment, chemical stripper and House of Kolor/PPG paint/prep products. Not expensive at all, less than $60 in materials (including metal prep chemicals), free labor of course. You can get a decent "cheap" air brush setup for about $50 these days.
Example of my work: 2006 Fuji Roubaix refinished in House of Kolor-Carribean Surf (purple/green/gold color shift). It is the enamel formula, does not require a catalyst which makes it much easier to apply.
Pictures do not do this color justice, or any color shifting pigment for that matter.
You know you like the cheap "flame pinstriping"...
Feel free to post comments, suggestions or questions.
Next project: 2006 Giant OCR1 Aluminum redone in House of Kolor-Purple Passion...for the wife of course.
