Well, we (my nephew is getting into this project as well) decided to go with a complete restore. I checked out koolstuff paint and was wondering how important it is to use a reddish primer? I thought that’s what Schwinn had originally used?
I plan on restoring and would appreciate any information.
First step paint removal. I weighed out blasting vs stripper. Concerned about the anchoring effect in the steel (especially around serial #), so stripper it is.
Any recommendations on sourcing paint?
1970 lemon peeler, decent chrome, frame has some wear, seat has tear. Overall good rideable condition or great candidate for resto.
Would prefer local pick up and willing to meet within a reasonable distance from south western PA. Will ship at buyers expense.
