Maybe a white spray over the primer, then the yellow? Would be more bright yellow that way.

Just brainstorming up here in 'way too cold to paint' country. ;)

Been teetering on to cold to paint here too. Was out of town shopping with the family today and picked up a can of Krylon JD yellow, So I'm going to sand and repaint the yellow parts

Yellow never covers very well, especially gloss yellow. A wet coat of the gloss tends to pull away from edges letting the base color show through. As it stands you could try applying a couple of thin tack coats of the yellow over the current paint. Spray it from a distance so the paint goes on nearly dry. Once you have reasonable coverage with the tack coats hit it with a heavier coat to get the gloss finish you want.

Went over it with the Krylon and it covered all the edges with no problem

A few minor set backs but she is coming together. Hate using Schwinn parts, not even sure where the Schwinn sprocket came from but the nut I thought went to it won't go on.

The chrome under the paint on the sissy bar is shot, so I will be stripping it to bare metal and clearing it.

Ha-Ha! I feel your pain! I’m not really a schwinn guy either, and I’ve had a bear of a time on my stingray project.

-it seems with a schwinn bike or trying to repurpose schwinn parts, there is no cheap or easy fix or solution.

I love your wheel and tire combo.

Keep it up. It’s looking great.

Thanks, I have ran across more Stingray parts building this bike than I knew I had, may just steal a crank off another bike for right now
