Ya going to paint or powdercoat?
If you are just painting I would not worry about taking anything off aslong as you use tape to keep the paint from where you dont want it. If the stuff is easy to take off the do it :)

Dont forget to use primer :)

anyone? do i need to go over it with some sand paper or just wipe it down with some alcohol? i planned on using that heavy duty black grill paint.
Just got mine today also. As you probably noticed it's strong as hell, but it's pretty greasy/oily. Sounding like a redneck I'm thinking denatured alcohol, $4 buck a gallon, and then decide if I should powder coat it.

If you not going to do that, just leave it.

I can get crap power coated for nothing, maybe I'll hook something up.:thumbup

Mine was powder coated, what is yours? If you dont leave it out in the weather much dont worry to much. I would clean it real well with alcohol, Prime it, and paint it. (if its not a flat paint) I like to clear coat stuff, but thats just me. If it will be outside a lot, take it to a powder coater. It will last a lot longer.;)

are we talking about bike stands here? Painting? Chrome dipping? huh?????????????

I could give a dayum if mine rusted and had stickers all over them, as long as they hold the bike up. Then again, I'm just a functional kind of dude :D
