Over the past couple weeks/months I've noticed a lot of people posting how-tos, questions and pictures of their spray painted work. In an effort to cut back on the number of "How do I paint my...." threads I've decided its time to take all those resources and put them together in a single easy to access location. I feel that this cross section of threads will be able to answer any bike part painting questions you may have or give you the proper place to ask. If you feel there is a thread that can be added to this that could help other out then post the link up and it will be.

I have been painting my own bikes for 25 plus years now and always use automotive urethane paints with base coat and clear coat. I use epoxy primers with 2 coats and always have had pro quality especially the last 10 years since Im a cabinet maker by trade and have my own shop with all equipement.

thanks for the reply. I thought it was strange when they said thy couldn't do it. Ive emailed a couple more companies asking for a quote. Hopefully I get more luck outta them. Might send the first company that link just to prove them wrong Razz
