I thought I'd share what I have done to my old BMX

Firstly it started out like this:

I then stripped it down used some P40 and got it looking like this:

So I have found some paint stripper in the garage and tomorrow I will be stripping all the places the sand paper couldn't get.

Then I'm gonna either clear coat it or just leave it to rust

Tell me what you guys think! More photos to come :D

Looks good!
How about clear coat stripes, so most of the frame rusts, but there's stripes (or checkers, or flames, etc) in bare metal?
