Umm yeah, frame was mostly black except the rear wheel area and the triple tree downtube. There I put on a nice thick layer of a pretty bold red. Once all the red dried (wait at least a day) then you lay on the stockings. I learned with this paint job that it looks best if you can get a wave going on. Then start spraying the black and try to do it from one direction so you can get a shadowed effect plus dont over do the black, you don't want to start over. Then I hit it with a non yellowing laquer just a thin coat or two for shine. I would have been better off using an automotive quality urethane, but I made due with what I had.
