Getting ready to prime!

Sandblasted the frame and fork and just mixed up the primer. It requires about 45 minutes to incubate. Then it is time to spray!
Getting closer!!!

I am using Nason Chromabase. There is a Auto paint store about 30 minutes away and they have been very helpful. I have used this on 3 other frames.

Tom- I believe this paint is pretty much the same family of chemistry that I have chosen for my lathe and the frame that will use the Lug Making Part Dux efforts. It looks like you're spraying from their rattle cans? I'll be brushing on mine. Andy
