what did you use to strip it? I am thinking of just masking off spots and adding color to the blue, but I dig what you did! I dare not copy that, but a partial strip of the paint in sections would be cool.

Well done :thumbsup:

I used Klean Strip, its like 8 or 9 bucks a can at Walmart. Its does a fairly good job. I used half a can on the whole bike. A good quality brass wire brush, and a scraper.

Thnx,, I may have to play with some designs. Did you spray on the gunkote? I wonder if there is another product that comes in a spray can so I can forgo the renting of a sprayer..

If what you plan to do is add color to the existing one, no stripping is necessary. Just mask off the area you want, sand, prime, color, and clearcoat. :)

Very inspiring! My brother in law has a nice large paint booth, although he has no way to bake a frame so I would stick with the standard versions. Redoing my Inbred with could make a nice winter project.

What volume of each did it take for your frame?

A half pint maybe. . if that... the coating is very thin... I have enough left to do it again.. They also have air dry products, if those interest you. I should have used that.. as finding a big enough oven was a pain..

Yep, I was just looking at that on their website. The bake on is probably a good bit tougher and would be ideal, but their air dry product still sounds better than regular paint.

How much did all of this cost you?
$9 for stripper. $58 For products from KG coatings. $6 for decals. That big bottle of K PHOS pre treat was almost as much as the coating.. but worth it.

That looks great! I may do something similar once my paint gets thrashed.
