Painting frames with a brush (over old paint)
Hello. I have just got hold of a "British Eagle" hybrid bike and it's in perfect working condition, with barely a scratch on the paint. However, I need it to be a particular colour and so I am going to paint it. I have been advised that simply sanding the current paint back a bit will provide a decent base layer upon which to paint, and that I could do so with liquid paint and a brush.
Has anyone ever done this? I will be painting it deep green, and the original paint is a light grey colour.
Anything you can tell me about this plan would be appreciated.
