    You got that good of results from a 'rattle-can'?

    Which type of Krylon (Metal, Fusion, etc) did you use? Also, what did you use for a clear coat?

    Your results make me want to consider repainting my old Monkey Wards steed.


    Maybe use my old school colors.

    Nice... now it needs a ????

    Nice paint -even more so that it came from a ratlle can. Good for you. Now the only thing missing is some Japanese kanji stickers that say Fuji bicycle!

    Good job. Rattle cans are getting better all the time with the atomization they are doing. They still can't beat the Pros but that's why they are the Pros. I agree, needs some graphics/stickers.

    I used general purpose kylon for it and rustolem clear enamel for a clear coat. What made it turn out so well imho was all the preparation. I spent a lot of time sanding everything down and then sanding between coats. Also, I used 3 coats for each layer. All it tkaes is a lot of patience.

    I wish I did have stickers too.

    It was a lot of fun to do. I'd do it again in a heart beat with a few minor adjustments.

    You could order custom decals for your Fuji. Just google it, search on eBay, or post a message in the forums. There are several businesses that can make custom decals for any kind of bike.
