Great Rattlecan Thread

Thought I'd post this here for those who want to go about spraying their bikes w/o a compressor:

A very detailed write-up, and kind of moves you away from the standard auto store paints.

Re: Great Rattlecan Thread

This thread deserves a sticky. It answers all the questions I ever had about painting my bike myself.

I think I'm going to pull the lower cowl off this week and give it a go.

Re: Great Rattlecan Thread

I'd recommend moving this to the "how-to" section, and stickying it there.
