what material are you looking at painting? Alu and carbon require different methods of approach.

Let us know the materials as it can vary. Also remember that prep is everything. Make sure each layer is cured as well and don't rush it. The finish will be much more durable.

Hi,

ISO painting these would you not be better of having them anodized black?

For removing logos, caustic soda should do the trick IIRC.

Ciao, ;)
