Step 2: Preparing the frame
Beginning with 120 grit shop rolls, I sanded every square inch of the frame, then switched to 220 grit. Once all rust was removed, I painted the frame with a rust stopping primer. I used a brush to apply the primer, since I had decided to paint the frame with a hammered finish enamel. I decided on using the hammered finish, since the frame was too pitted for a really smooth finish.
