Looks like the F4i turned out alright, almost a shame though to paint over the red/white scheme.

The thing that always bugs me about spray paint (rattle cans) is the tactile feel of the paint. I have not tried your method yet, but every method I *have* tried always leaves the surface feel nasty and suffocating (I don't know how else to describe it) with the slightest hint of stickyness, even on paint that dried a year ago. This is even with sanding and multiple thin coats.

Does your method wind up like this too, or is this fixed by clearcoat (which I haven't yet tried)

So I think I may finally do this. Bike is looking kinda old so I think it's time. I do have a (small) compressor now, but I think this may be just fine. I'll have to look back through the technique before I decide for sure which way to do it.

A question:

Do you have any experience with the refillable spray cans?
http://www.amazon.com/Northern-Indus.../dp/B0000AX88U

Investing in a compressor and HPLV spray gun wouldn't make sense financially with the starving Grad student budget. The hobbyist part wants to try learning a new skill. The environmentalist part wants to find a safe, and less dangerous solution. The prissy guy element wants to make the bike look less ratty.

The refillable aerosol can theoretically has the same abilities, but with some very notable issues.
1) condensation: I intend on filling the can with a bicycle pump. Atmospheric air contains non-insignificant amounts of gaseous water.
2) non-adjustable nozzle.

I went to my local auto paint shop, but they didn't know how well it would work. Not that I blame them at all :P

I didn't have access to HPLV stuff so I used the "Reckon Rattle Can technique". For only spending $80, I was surprised with the outcome. The paint laid down really flat. The plastic was old and crappy so it took a little bit of prep sanding. It was still cheaper to paint rather than buying all new plastics, so I figured what the heck and have some fun with it.

Thanks for the write up Reckon

Here are some before and after pics:
