Old metal accessory Anti Corrosion Spray Paint Primer in Flat White Acrylic spray paint in White 100-grit sandpaper Old newspapers for lining your work area
With 100 grit sandpaper, sand off the excessively rusty portions on the metal accessory’s surface.
Spray anti corrosion spray paint primer all over the bike in long, steady strokes.
After one coat, let dry for ten minutes, then repeat. Here, we used three coats.
When primer is completely dry, spray the white acrylic paint all over with long, even strokes, making sure not to direct the spray paint in one area for too long (this will result in uneven coverage). After one coat, let dry for 15 minutes before another application. Here, we used a total of four coats, turning the bike upside down whenever necessary for even coverage.
