As title what do you all prefer for recolouring a frame? Paint and powder coat.
Having just built the carrera that I had powdercoated I found a few issues with the thickness, and having to shave back the powder coat to get things to fit.

If painting what kind of Paint? Is it just automotive paint people use?

Let's hear your thoughts on this

Paint, most definitely. Fantastic range of products available to allow you to do an excellent job and so easy to correct little mistakes.

Gunner what kind of paint do you use? Aerosols? Do you use a special top coat to stop chipping?

Aerosol with a good quality lacquer finish, also in aerosol form.

Just taking your time is the key.
