yer paint strip it back and try not to scratch it while you do it or ull fuck it up

and youll have to clear coat it unless you want to stress about every drop of water that hits your frame and quickly get it of before it rusts but raw bikes look awsome though i'd do it

oh and my mate once didnt clear coat his and it was orange after one wash with surface rust YUCK!!

i just rawwed my cranks and forks, thinking bout doin my stem next......I just bought some aircraft grade paint stripper at Lowe's and sprayed the bitches down (after takin em off my setup). Waited about 30 minutes, and the paint peeled right off my forks, Cranks were a little harder, think they had more coats of paint on em. Haven't clearcoated em yet, thats gonna get done this week.

i used that on my frame a few days ago. it worked great...


BUT


since you have to rinse off the chemicals, water went down my seattube and now i see a light coating of rust on the INSIDE of the tube...


anyone know a good rust preventer to spray INTO the frame?

sand blaster. chemicals can interfere with the clear coat paint. Pros use sand blasters to strip existing paint. If you can find one, I'm just lucky to know someone who has one in their garage. Anyways if you can find one just protect the inside of the BB and head tube and take your time with it. The sand is real fine and mixed in with air and works perfectly uniform you know...

I used a polishing wheel for a grinder once, but i was just trying to take the paint off to start fresh. It basically sanded down the paint and a little of the metal. I have used that paint stripper stuff, and it works well, as to the water in the frame, get a spray on wax, and spray it into the frame, BEFORE using the water and chems. Wax repels water, so it won't stay. Good luck eh!

24 beers in a case, 24 hours in a day.
coincidence?
I think not.

blow dry it too
it takes care of risidual chemical residue so it doen;t interfere with the clear coat
