I am trying to paint my early 80's lugged steel frame, and I would like the paint to last atleast a year...I am going to start by stripping the frame and taking off the cable stops etc...but where do I go from there??
If the paint isn't peeling you would probably be better off to leave it on the bike. Rough up the old paint with 600 grit sandpaper to get the new paint to hold and clean all the surfaces with acetone prior to painting.
