I was thinking of painting my frame a trans color. Is it the same process as regularly painting a frame?

pick up some of this clear primer and get trans spray paint of your choice its the same as regular paint it just gets darker the more layers you put on

Duplicolor Metalcast $8.50 at O'Reillys and AutoZone
Made to be applied directly to metal, no primer. Use a full can of it on your frame and a full can of clear coat. Definitely get it on there thick and take your time.
I did these with it. Photo

Not any worse than regular spray paint. If you can find a clear primer it would help alot though.

I would suggest putting a tiny bit of shiny clear coat on your frame and. Polishing it before you put on the trans paint to make it shinier. Idk if that's how it works tho lol

Yeah. Clean the surface really well too. If you use sand paper use a very fine grit, and clear primer isnt necessary but is a plus. When I got it down to bare metal I used paint thinner to clean it, basically any strong chemical that will evaporate (hydrogen pyroxide, nail polish remover, etc.) just to prep it for paint. Scrub it pretty well and let it sit for a while to evaporate. Then wipe it down with a CLEAN dry rag and apply a few good layers of clear primer if you decide to use it. Then apply light coats of the paint every 30mins until the can is empty. Use near a full can of clearcoat too. Lacquer clearcoat would work best, but any outdoor use/metal/heavy duty clearcoat will work.
