Do you mean a wire brush? Joe, what is your primary language? Just curious. Smile

No, not a wire brush, I don't even know if those things exist abroad. Ah, just had to ask an online dictionary (and verify the word with google picture search) I mean a pan scourer: http://www.beaucaremedical.co.uk/Continence/product/Galvanised+Pan+Scourer+Pack+of+10.html
I found those easier to use than wire brushes, mine were too soft. I have to redo the paintjob though, I screwed up... but I just don't want to go through all of that again, I think I'll end up paying somebody to do it. I congratulate all of you who have the patience and skill to paint a frame.

My primary language is German. Yeah, I am your friendly neighbourhood Kraut in this forum Wink so now everybody knows Tongue

Thats ok Joe_w I use Linux OS its German.There is a woman here we have met and she is German she looks pretty good too :-).Oh I forgot this was a bike forum lol.

As far as how to repaint I have use my sandblaster for some bikes.And others I have use paint thinner with a wire brush and even sandpaper never more than 100 grit at best.After all paint is off I will sand it with 400 grit to 600 grit then to 1000 grit.Then Prime it with two to three coats.And sand after each coat before the next goes on.And for the paint color I will do it the same way but will use up to 6 or 8 coats of paint.And oven cleaner will take off decals easy.

What kind of paint are you using? I heard duplicolor works alright for a decent bicycle paint job.
