This shit is awesome. Great job on the strip and clear.

Silly question, but are you supposed to spray clear into the BB/HS areas? (obviously everything is off the frame at this point)

looks fresh. I love that you stripped that terrible paint scheme off. What did you use to strip it? Did you clear coat it?

Thanks

hey dude, I just used regular paint stripper. It definitely wasn't easy and took a ton of coats of it and quite a bit of sanding but it turned out real good. And yup I clear coated it afterwards, I did about 3 coats of clear.

Thanks. I just ordered one & your bike was the deciding factor, I couldn't deal with that stock paint. How long do you think it took to strip & clear. Also, what kind of clear did you use?
Thanks again.

I can't remember exactly how long it took, the main tubes strip really easy but all the lugged areas and tight corners took a long time. I'm from Canada so our products our different up here, regular paint stripper wasn't very strong so I actually got stain stripper from Home Depot, which is meant to pull stain right out of wood so it's pretty strong stuff and it did the trick. In between coats of stripper I also used a wire brush just to help the paint come off and I used a high grit sand paper at the end to polish it a bit. And for clear I just used a regular spray paint gloss clear from Home Depot as well, I did about 5 coats.
