Spray painting a Fork?
ok guys, i realise that this isnt ACTUALLY a mountain bike question but i thought somebody may have done it.
Im looking at spraying my Old RST on my Hardrock, i realise that it isnt really wrth spraying, and im planning on upgrading at some point anyway, but, im looking at a camo collection, i saw a british guy in my mbuk mag that did it, and it looks really cool, here's a pic
Probably wont do it that color, was looking at white and black camo with silver on it somewhere..
What i want to know is, what processes should i go through with it. My dad sprayed my brothers bike and it looked nice to start with but chipped VERY easily and lost its color qute quickly, he wet and dried it, then sprayed 4 or 5 coats of spray paint then clear laquered it a couple of time...
Does anybody else have a method for spraying? I dont really want to get it done proffessionally because i cant afford it, plus i would really like to try it on my own
