I'm about to start tearing down my project bike. I desire to have it professionally painted but I'm open minded about painting is myself if I could get nice results.
One thing I don't want to do is prep. Is sand blasting the best way to have parts prepped?
For those who have painted themselves, do you use a compressor sprayer?
I farm out my prep work and have parts bead-blasted.
I paint myself using a small compressor and HVLP spray guns.

Very nice G-Man. I have to admit I had to google Bead Blasting.
I do the whole thing.
Blast and paint and the only things I don't is chrome and bore job. ...................lm
What kind of paint do you use? Where do you purchase?
I still have a stock of Dupont IMRON. .....................lm
