What info do you need? Seems you have it down pat. The metal needs proper prep of the primer will not stick. Make sure your primer coat is not very thick and the topcoat is applied in thin layers as well. I am not sure of the exact mil thickness of the coating, but putting it on too thick will increase your chances of running the paint, and after i cures, too thick of paint will chip easy. So, get good coverage, but no too thick.Grub-on-Wheels said:Well, I have stripped my 1994 CroMoly frame down to bare metal. Now, how do I Paint it? From a sketchy understanding I think I need to again go over for a fresh sanding, treat imediately with some sort of phosphate solution, prime, paint. Dupont Imeron or I have a friend in auto body who really likes PPG (Pittsburg Paint and Glass) paints. But I really need some detailed Info, Please Help.
Here are the steps I would take.
Since you have it bare metal already, lightly scuff it with 400 grit, clean with a dioxidine solution, prime the frame. Let the primer cure, lightly scuff it, the take a tack rag to clean it, then apply top coat. When painting, spray the tough spots first (joints, the underside of the tubes) then be careful not to put too much paint on. When spraying, I like to stand at different angles, so the light hits everything perfect. This allows you to see all of the surface, ensuring total coverage, plus you want to keep a uniform gloss.
Good luck. If you paint it, please post it, I would love to see it.
