Turn a faded, dilapidated basketball goal into a piece worth playing on. Shows you how to paint on a stenciled logo.

Step 1: Materials

Ratchet and pliers (for removing backboard from post)
Sandpaper (for smoothing out and stripping the old surface)
Paint Scraper (for scraping off the pain, of course)
Spray paint (pick whatever colors you want)
Painters tape (for making the square)
Stencil (for your design)
Lacquer (to protect your design from years of jumpshots to come)
curious what size this backboard is (obviously to the creator)<br><br>i have an old playwood backboard, im just going to replace it though; mine is 48&quot; long x 40&quot; height<br><br>i like this one - not sure if this one is wider. thinking mine is too oval.

What grade sandpaper would you recommend to remove rust from the goal prior to painting?
One question: Do you have to use Photodelux to make the stencil? Can you use something else?
Remember people......Spray paint dries within 24 hours but can take up to 10 days to cure. You will definitely ruin your nice new paint job if you don't let it cure.

sweet....WAR EAGLE!!!!
nice work, I like the colours<br/><br/>an alternate method for creating a stencil can be found on step 3 here<br/><a href="https://www.instructables.com/ex/i/187511B80A9D1029BC4A001143E7E506/">https://www.instructables.com/ex/i/187511B80A9D1029BC4A001143E7E506/</a><br/><br/>note it reduces the underspray problem and no taping. You can get really detailed stencils using thin paper and spray tack.<br/>
