I spraypainted the new bike I bought this summer to change itīs apparence, but the only area I actually spraypainted was around the headtube and used ductape on other parts. You could also be creative and use masks to liven up the bike a bit (you can see text and part of a symbol I spraypainted on the bike)

After

When you click on the bottom pic, be ready for a bunch of windows to open and software trying to install on your 'puter!! Nice bike, though.

Lol, the joys of using firefox - automatic popup blocker.

I'm personally planning on spraying my bike when I get it, I'm painting it to be inkeeping with what it does, may give you a few ideas.

I wouldn't have mixed so many patterns myself, but he does show you how to do some interesting things.

As long as you prep right, you can get a really high quality paint job out of a 3 dollar can. I used some bottles of Krylon paints this weekend. Sanded down, put a layer of rust protect, a healthy primer and then put the pants on. Use some clear coat and you're set!

What, up to that point you were doing it all naked? Or do you hang pants off your bike as some strange fashion statement

I think this Rustoleum job came out pretty well. Prep carefully, use the same brand primer/paint and clearcoat, follow the directions on the can and you are good to go.

Probably won't have the depth or longevity of a "real" paintjob ( I'm careful not to knock this up against stuff) but hey, it cost about $10!

I love that pink spray job!!! I put a coat of Rustoleum rust converter on the frame I"m about to spray, do I need to use a primer also or is the rust converter enough of a primer?

You can also add your own decals, Google "decal paper" for instructions and material.

Gee I don't know the answer to that...

How about asking Rustoleum customer support?
