I am in the process of restoring an old motorcycle and I have some painting to do.
I know some people will say get the frame blasted and powder coated, but I think that is extreme, as I once had one done and it was more trouble than it was worth. So this time I am planning on using Smoothrite on the frame and swing arm (and one or two other parts).
Question is - how much do I need to buy? I have no idea of the coverage, nor how much surface area there is on the average motorcycle frame etc.
Once that part is done, I will of course be turning my attention to the other parts -tank, mudguards etc. so I will need to buy some spray paint for that. I will be using a compressor/spray gun and not rattle cans, as I believe a quality finish is easier to acheive when you have proper control.
Again, I do not know how much I will need...
So can anybody help me out with approximate quantities?
All the best
Got some useful tips for doing a tricky job or know of a cheap alternate part? This is the place to list them.
