Stripping and paint:
This was my first (and last) rattle can
paint job. We sanded the frame a little before the primer and final
coat and the results were far from good. The quality of a spray can job
just can't match up to a full professional job.
We used about 8 cans of car paint from a local auto shop over a very light coat of sandable primer. While it looked OK, it started rusting through the paint within a month.
