Day Tone, you paint job was needless to say amatuerish ;) Especially when you dont even tape off the wheels or forks.

To get good results, the least you need to do is strip to the frame (No wheels or engine and such), and scuff up the paint from with 600 grit paper. Add some primer, then paint. Every 2-3 coats, wetsand with 800 grit. Add some clearcoat, and enjoy your pimptastic paintjob :D

If you wanted to be crazy you could strip the frame, but its not really needed for a OK paintjob.

I guess it depends on the frame...if you have a frame w/ the stamped chrome pieces,I wouldnt try to paint the chrome. I roughed up my frame a bit,lost all the buttons that mounted them and filled in all the holes and unfinished welds with JB weld.I hit it with about 3 coats of rattlecan krylon black and its holding up well - I crash alot
