First go at painting

So far I’ve just been using spray cans to do the undercoating. Although the finish is good, but they’re expensive and come in limited colours.

 

I bought myself a compressor and a cheap spray gun so I could properly paint the bike. Today was my first go.

 

I’m impatient, so I kept painting the bits whilst I was still trying to work out the correct paint/thinner ratio. The finish is a little iffy here and there (I didn’t use any paint strainers either) but it’s not too bad. I’m going to leave it for a week, sand the rougher bits down and have another go.
