Step two: pay someone to do it for you that is good with paint and will not mess it up in the first place.

Does it matter what Jasco i use? They have a Premium Paint & epoxy remover in like a paint can, or they have Premium Paint & Graffiti remover in a spray can. Will both of these work? Becuase i would rather the spray can.

As long as this is kinda relevant to the topic, I might add that when painting a frame that has it's factory coat on it still, there is no need to sand it. The factory paint is a great primer.

Well I was planning on leaving the frame raw and then clear coating, but thats exactly what i did for my bars and fork.

I will admit he has some really good information, but only when he feels like giving it. However, 14 out of 15 times all he does is give an A--hole remark. So no, not a fan.




Well I picked up some paint remover thats pretty much jasco with a different name. Saturday I have a day off so ill do it all then.

I'm going to do the same thing with mine. I bought some paint thinner, which apparently is the wrong thing, and then it got knocked over when I wasn't watching, and 3/4ths of the $6 bottle spilled out. Dammit.

I want the new Fit S3 Edwin, but I'm sure I can't afford it.. It at least comes in black and purple, but I don't know about raw.

2: hand sand
3: some $chemical$ stripper as stated above
4: burn the paint off with a blowtorch.
5: buy a raw frame.

I've been contemplating whether or not to paint my beater bike black, make it raw or leave it the color it is.

This is the color of it now.
