    Default Fender painting

    Greetings! Long time lurker, first time poster here.

    You guys that build bikes that are intended to be riddden, do you paint/coat the dirty side of your fenders with anything?

    Do you put anything on to protect the metal like epoxy paint, bed liner, regular enamel, etc. or do you just leave the raw metal to the elements?

    Thanks!

    When I used to do vintage bicycles I always used spray can bedliner before the color went on. planning on doing the same with the rear fender on the bike im doing now.

    Could if you wanted to. Enough oil flips up from leaks and chains that I've never had anything rust underneath.

    I scuff and seal (epoxy sealer) the underside along with the top. You can use a paintable undercoat or chip guard before paint ( make sure it is paintable, some undercoats do not fully dry) and let the overspray go on it. Or you can do it after the clear is good and hard by masking the inside edges and then undercoating. I recommend it, as it will keep your tins from chipping and rusting underneath.

    Check this out https://www.kbs-coatings.com/DiamondFinish-Clear.html just discovered this, looks pretty good, in the feature section they claim, harder than 2 part clear.
