 That paint tripper s*ck ballz! Don't use that guys, it gonna make a lot of bubbles that u'll be able to take off, but the rest of paint will stay on your frame, and it'll be pretty hard to remove that. Much better way is to use sand paper.
  • + 2
 sandpaper rubs the paint into the frame and leaves some paint in the frame

 In some cases the primer acts as an rust protector on steel frames, as some colurs are waterbased, three weeks later the frame starts to rust.

 appsolutly true

 ive seen many people try to paint their bikes and i lol'd so hard. my fav is when they just grab a can of spray paint and give it hell. no effort to remove parts or tape off anything. It looks so awesome. or like my old roommate. took everything off the bike down to the frame then laid it on its side on some newspaper. spared it till it was dripping off. then flipped the bike over and repeated on the other side. no drying or anything. then he was confused why it looked like crap and had newspaper stuck in it when it finally dried. lmao

good vid for nubs who just don't know. :0

 wouldnt you want to do a little bit of sanding after all the paint is gone to scrath up the surface so paint sticks better (thats what ive always been told)
  • + 1
 where can one find himself some sandblasting sand? thats my only problem. and does it matter what kind of sand you use or is it all the same?
  • + 1
 good way to paint your bike. sandblasting works well too to take off the paint, and its faster. you just need a sandblaster and sand.

 my school has one in its metal shop and my teachers gana let me use it because im ahead on all the projects
  • + 1
 yea you should use primar so the paint sticks, then do like 5 coats of paint, wetsand the parts you messed up on, then clear coat

 OMFG r u serious, paint striper? Can I wash the raw frame with water and dry it up with tissue paper after i've used paint stripped all over the frame?
  • - 1
 yteh i alway use paint stripper and i get get a great quality of raw metal

 Might be an idea to mask up the BB shell and headtube before you paint. Saves a lot of time, peeling off masking tape only takes a second.
  • + 2
 why,

if you spraying thinly, the paint in the bb shell and in the headtube, woudnot be an issue?

i think, even if thinkly it wouldnt matter tbh,

im confused lol

an air gun is better to use, then you can layer and mix paint easier, and put the can in the fridge beforehand for a better finish
  • + 1
 do you think the same techinque would work for rims? or what would you have to change.
  • + 1
 dunno ight work, but it just re-building them without scratching it
  • + 1
 ive sprayed my rims with spray paint and nothing else and it worked pretty good but i think u should also put on clear coat
  • + 1
 thanks
  • + 1
 np but u have to spin it on a old bike so u dont get paint on ur nice bike and then spray it or itll be uneven and u should alo use a heat gun after u spray it and use masking tape to tape the spokes
  • + 1
 i was thinking of just takin the spokes off so it would go quicker. and hanging the rim up and then spraying it.
  • + 1
 no it wont work as well cuz when u spin the wheel it makes the paint more even and taping it is easier look at my norco 125 in my album i sprayed the rims

paint stripper_ buy a water based nitro moors

once the paint has been removed wash you bike with water

 one other big thing to do would be to use primer because if you dont the paint might not stick as well to the frame
  • + 0
 i used primar before but i was to impatient for it so i dont use it no more
  • + 0
 you should use it cause it makes for a much better and longer lasting paintjob
  • + 0
 true tru, but im happy with what i used cause its actually very thick
  • + 1
 Does it matter if i use primer or not? I want a raw looking frame and just clear coat the finish
  • + 1
 it dpeneds if you having a proper rawed fram or a colour like the frame
  • + 1
 Can you use the paint stripped on a fork?
  • + 1
 What'll happen if the paint stripped drips or flows to my bb? I'm thinking of leaving the bb on
  • + 1

 i think its because the layers you painted were too thick and the paint started to run. but whatever it is you can wet sand it and it should help.
