you can prep it on the clear. i'd strip it though just to make sure it comes out the beset it can. that'll be an easy strip job too.

you could just sand it down if you wanted, aircraft stripper is better though. saves time and your hands, cuz sanding paint makes mine all dryed out and crack.

Not sure if I personally like either of those color options. But that is up to you and my opinion should not matter. I posted up a thread in the old school section a couple of hours ago. In that thread there is a video clip of a bunch of old bikes from some show. On that video is a picture of (I believe it is) a Dyno that is all yellow with red parts. It may give you an idea of what it will look like. Of course everything metal on it appears to be yellow if I remember correctly but might be worth taking a look at it.

Chemical stripper for the win btw.

Red fur and paint it brown with yellow dots. That way it looks like corny poo.

But most likely the last one out of the four

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
