first of all you need to take off any of the parts of you bike that you do not want painted. and if you don't take some parts off then I advise you to atleast cover the parts with paper towels or something of that sort.

Step 3: Sanding.

for the spray paint to stick better to the metal on your frame and other parts..sand as many of the parts as possible

Step 4:

Picture of
once you have you bike stripped and covered. also sanded. its time to paint..find a place you can spray paint it and be able to let it dry. some place like on your lawn or you can even hang your bike on a tree branch. paint about two coats of paint over your bike and let them dry!

Btw, what can i do if the bolts are flushed on the bike? =/
if you cant get them off with a 15mm,18mm or 19mm socket its time to get the angle grinder and cut the axles off
