i'm thinking to paint the whole bike myself.

did anyone in this forum paint their bike by themselves.. ?
what kind of paint do you guys use... ? (spray paint and hard layer clear coat..?)
does the paint get damaged or chipped easily..?
and will it look cheap .. ?

If you do it yourself, be careful and do your homework, especially if you're going to paint it a different colour. Sorry I can't help you on how to do it, but I can say I've seen repainted bikes and the nicks and scratches were different colours.

Plastic is trickier to paint than metal because if the paint is too hard, then it won't flex properly and will develop cracks quickly. Saw this happen on my neighbor's bike. Ask some of the pro shops what you should use and how to do it properly.
