As the title says, I'm planning to paint over some stone chips I have on my VTR250 frame, and some small scratches around the fuel cock that go to the primer and tiny tiny amounts of bare metal. I have no real mechanical or painting experience, so I want to run my idea of how I will do this through you guys before I start, and make sure I'm not about to do anything stupid. As there is a scratch around the fuel cock, I'm planning on taking the fuel tank off to allow better "access". I'm pretty confident I'll be OK with this, there are three bolts holding it down to rubber dampeners and the frame, and after removing these, all I would need to do is disconnect the fuel tube, a breather tube and the fuel auto cock vacuum tube. After doing this, I'll have easy access to the scratch and stone chips, so I'm planning to give the stone chips and scratch a sand with maybe 400 grit wet/dry paper, prime the area, sand it with 600 grit paper? and then paint it with some gloss black paint from a can. I'm tossing up whether to use a very small artists paint brush, or maybe cut a 5mm hole in some A4 paper, hold it about a centimeter off the spot I'm painting and then spray at the paper from about 25cm. I reckon this might allow me to aerosol paint the tiny area with the spray can. Should I sand in between a few very light coats with some really fine grit paper? Anyway, after it has properly dried, (or cured or set, i'm not sure what you call that paint process) I would polish it and then wax. Is this OK? I'm thinking if I take my time, and not rush, I probably wont stuff anything up bad, but I would like your advice!
