We're talking WEEKS of a person's life, and countless hours that could have been spent doing something else (like earning money) consumed by such a project. Not to mention endless patience, and shot nerves worrying about drips.

These paint jobs are real "time burglars".
Thank you. I wasn't going to do another bike. Really! Then the BA DVD happened (because of this forum)... The last bike I rustoleum-ed I said it was my last. You kind of forget the waiting, sanding, waiting- oil based brushes/rollers... Then the idea takes over. Thank you for your comment
