RAWING SUNDAY FRAME
« on: March 05, 2015, 08:18:39 AM »
i have a sunday 3rd wave, in blue wave, really sick of the childish color, how hard has it been for anyone to raw a sunday frame with the thick powder coat and the black magic coating, im going to use stripper in a spray can, will this be effective?

I usually get the best results using aircraft remover spray with a high grit steelwool. If you spray it them wait 5 minutes and use the wool to rub it off it works. Ive used jasco and it barely eats the first coat of paint.

I would recommend just painting it a new colour over the top. The stock paint is very high quality and makes a great key for a new coat of whatever colour you fancy. Rawing it will take a LOT of time and effort and chances are you will want to protect it from rust etc and clear coat is pretty disappointing from this point of view. Chances are in 6 months you will have a crappy looking rusty frame and end up wanting to paint it again anyway. So save some time now and just give it a very light sand to key the paint, then spray it to look like a bunch of entangled snakes fornicating...

I did a 2-tone fade powder-coat job over a brand new Flatware frame...and yes I would agree with George, the stock coating is tough as hell and is a great base for new paint. Just sand any deep scratches out, clean the hell out of it and squirt away.

I have a great pic, but it wont let me upload...bummer!

I've always found the best way to take paint off a Sunday is to do bigger hand rails.
