Yeah that's what I thought, altho I should note the crank arms are already removed from the bike so that would require much less Newspaper lop.If a professional paint shop will do the complete job, labour and materials for £20 go for it.
If you want cheap, I suppose you could get an aerosol spray and a newspaper to mask the rest of your bike for less than £10, but the quality is likely to be short lived.
Yeah cheers that's how it seems! If I were going all out for frames etc but just for a pair of crank arms it ain't worth it. Unless anyone's got a fsa omega Chainset in black going spare..?!Get a pro to do it, by the time you get the primer colour and clearcoat it will cost more than that in paint
I have used those Poundland primers and black gloss and surprisingly they have done a good job on a number of small jobs such as quill stems, handlebars and seat posts on various old bikes. I don't think I would attempt a frame respray though.Poundland. Primer and black paint sold there. You could even stick them in the oven for a few hours at very low to bake the paint. If it all goes tits up you can always strip it off with a bit of paint stripper. £2 worth a punt.
