That's how I would like to paint !, But never have the time, I tend to rush things,I've had several items on various bike powder coated. The results look great. How ever having had a couple of frames done and then had to do repairs on them from acid leaking from a damaged batteries. I didn't feel inclined to incur the expense in both time and money of stripping the bike down to strip the frame of power coat and re powder coating it. I am not into the concours thing either. I've got the equipment to do spray paint but setting up the garage by covering everything to protect it from over spray is time consuming to say the least. I tend to go the rattle can route as well. I think my results are passable, I'm satisfied with them. I'll spend my time getting my surface clean and smooth and use the rattle can primer. Let it harden a week or more, then rub is down with increasing grits of wet and dry. Then apply color and let that dry a week or more and rub down the same way followed by paint polishing compound in finer and finer grades.
