i started restoring an antique m/c and last winter i painted the frame with black centauri acrylic enamal, and it looked greatat that time. it was several months before i could get back on the project. in the mean time it had gotten scratched and chipped in many places.
can you suggest a better and tougher finish for this frame? i am considering hot coat but that is an expensive major commitment for the occasional hobby restorer. what would be my next best choice and do i need to strip and blast back to bare metal again to start over or can i scuff and feather what i have and finish over it.
