    High Temp Engine Paint on Steel Frame

    http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=372

    Any problems with using this on my sanded down steel frame then using some polyurethane top coats? first time painting bike, so trying to avoid egregious mistakes.

    I have used Briggs & Stratton engine enamel in satin black and gloss black along with other colors that have been discontinued on motorcycle frames in the past with great success,very durable and forgiving to conditions when painting. One of the parts I used to use it on all the time until they discontinued it ( Pewter Mist ) was the swingarms on honda dirt bikes like the one below. I am going to try and paint a frame in black someday, whats great about it is it doesn't matter if you use primer or not as I have tried both ways and they both held up very well. Most cleaners like Spray Nine,Power Purple and Greased Lightning didn't mess with it at all also.
