Not making another new, thread, just gonna bump it. So what are some cool ideas as I being different? A sticker bombed frame? Put comic book pges on the frame, adhese them onto frame, clearcoat over. That sort of thing. Or water dipped frames.

But it's maaaaaad. And I'm going to test and see if I can get like 1000 grit sandpaper to make it smooth, wipe it down, and clearcoat it. Or I'll do their comic book page technique.

On thing that used to rust were the fork and bar scratches.

Imo a light rust, sanded smooth, clearcoated looks good. My frame was like that because the person who owned it before be didnt clear it fast enough.

I like the look of rust, however...
Coat over it and then the process will turn inward.
It's no better than allowing your bike to sit outside. Rust is oxidization, I.e. Steel rot.
Seems like a bad plan.
IMO.

mine used to be 100% rust. people thought i painted it orange/brown/bronze the rust was so solid and bright. i never clearcoated it and rode it in the ice and snow and salt most winter. i have recently amended to the rust tho, re-rawing and painting/clearing.

This. And with multi butted tubing on most frames today, you're just speeding up the clock for your face's meeting with the pavement, haha.

Trans colors look rad. I also like the look of the paint job on the TD350 frames. I just like the subtle stripes

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

Topsey's rusted T1 is sex.
