    Going to get as close to JD green as I can find without driving 25 miles for a can of paint

    Can't help ya, all we got over here is Ford Blue and International Red.
    But Krylon's probably got something close at Walmart...

    I used to get spray cans of "Implement Green" that is right on the money.

    Picked some paint today 78870834_10220714012428641_3219007542298411008_o.jpg Not really happy how the yellow is covering the primer 78559702_10220714249874577_5622064434722635776_n.jpg Love the green, everything from the color to how it went on 78982519_10220714251034606_1297888921568411648_n.jpg

    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

    It's no help now, but I have good luck with yellow over a white primer.

    Planned on getting it back together the day after Christmas but got hit with the crud and now I'm feeling better it's cold and wet out.

    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. 81728589_10220997549836899_2637941141944664064_o.jpg
    Dang schwinn parts

    The chrome under the paint on the sissy bar is shot, so I will be stripping it to bare metal and clearing it. 82236918_10220997691520441_2527573822605885440_o.jpg

    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
