Painting a frame

I have stripped all the paint off a transition blindside 2009 (aluminium)

I want to paint it with a spray can

What coats do I need? Primer - colour - finish?

Can anyone recommend a spray can? I was just thinking about one from wilkos/homebase etc.

Re: Golf mark 5 gti 2005

So... I've bought one! I may have kept this a little bit secret but I've passed my test today as well! insurance isn't pretty at £2000 but the car certainly is. Thanks for all the advice guys! Cheers. P.S upperoilcan - I got the Pm but couldn't quite stretch to a ED30, as much as I'd love to. In the...

Re: Falling off technique.

You either never fell off a bike or never riden one your pick... So say you go OTB, at speed (I think this is the important bit here) - you'd rather take the impact with your face then stick your arms out :lol: (which instinct would have you do anyway, assuming you don't possess an supernatural abi...

Re: Golf mark 5 gti 2005

DJ 58 - I will look through service history for these changes. Its not a deal breaker if one or two are original is it? Upperoilcan - Thanks a lot, I'll check for white worm. Also, here are some things ive been advised to keep an eye out for. Besides obvious changes such as cambelt and brake pads Di...

Re: Clarkson

Is it weird they're continuing to show top gear on bbc3? I thought the reason they stopped the remaining episode of this series was to get to JC - as in stopping his air time. If they show repeats then all they're doing is punishing the fans?

Re: Clarkson

if JC signs a new 2 year contract with top gear without a huge pay increase I will eat my hat and apologise to anyone who wants it. if on the other hand he gets a massive rise or moves to something new on a higher salary/shared ownership then I won't wait for a return apology but I may chuckle to m...

No its just you and a lot of other people go too far the other way and actually think there isn't anything funny going on, anywhere in the world, ever - like it is some sort of an impossibility.

Re: Golf mark 5 gti 2005

They both have a full service history! Both have had timing belt changed, not sure about brakes The first one is much closer to me an easier to get to - and I'm not even sure its had more than 4 owners, but the seller says he doesn't know how many its had. I told him to check the log book tonight to...

Re: Golf mark 5 gti 2005

What do you guys think on this.. two different cars

One from Clapham south London - 100,000miles that's probably been driven in short journeys around the city - considerably more gear changes, clutch use etc

One that's had more than 4 owners?

Apologies if this has already been suggested - I've not looked in chat for a couple of days and I can't be bothered to wade through 6 pages of]Manc33 paranoia!

But I found another one for around the same mileage. This ones 1 2007. Think I'm going to pick it up this weekend , fingers crossed someone else does...
