    strip all mechanical parts from frame
    anything you can't take off, tape it up or cover with paper
    scuff up old paint (remove shine) so new paint will stick
    spray bomb it

    good luck

    Anything you don't remove, wrap in aluminium foil, much easier to use than paper and tape ;)

    I paint at a metal fab shop and do automotive painting at my house.Those are all good tips for a inexpensive paint job.I also use seran wrap to cover stuff.Anoth tip would be to spray bomb some clear over the paint to make it last longer.

    I have had good luck with paint from hardware stores. Once you finish scuffing and sanding, clean the frame with glass cleaner or a mild solvent. Keep it clean until painted. You will be happy with it.
