    Rattle & a good clear coat, someone else mentioned this. If you aren't affiliated with some type of auto body shop, it is very difficult to go w/ strictly automotive quality materials throughout. I think that a good etching primer is key. Between Rustolium & Krylon, they have some really great colors. Oregano, aged bronze, w/ colonial red stripping, all Rustolium, urethane clear coat on this one.

    Cleanliness, Cleanliness, Cleanliness and some more Cleanliness!


    I bought as Advertised off the Web: Original Schwinn Maroon factory matched paint (or something to that effect) in rattle cans. I think the Guys name was Aaron something. I liked the paint, but had a hard time getting my orders. I still need to pin stripe it but it turned out good. When I bought the bike it had all been sand blasted except the fork, I wish it hadn't been blasted. I bet the rest of the paint was real nice. The forks cleaned up nice so I left them alone. Check them out, you can see some chips but the original paint is NIIIICCE.

    ....... did you ever wonder why it sticks to the non prep'd sufaces (vise,table floor, etc) but scratch's off easy on your "prep" jobs o_O

    This. bike was a rusty mess. Then I sprayed wd-40 on it and it got worse. glass beaded the fenders. Tank and rack leaving holes in 3 out of 4 items. Just like the episode of Star Trek where the aliens upon rescueing the female- they didn't know what she looked. like when they put her together. I too didn't have any guide to look at when I painted her.
