Paint Job
 
Probably a dumb question but what the heck? Can you spray paint a racket and if yes, what paint works the best? A client offered me two Prince Tour frames in exchange for a string job. The frames are beat to hell but I had already agreed. Hope I can paint them and use them as demo rackets for different strings.

Thanks/Don

On some older rackets I've come across has a gummy flat finish. Some others have a dry grease finish like on drinking glasses that have been sitting on a shelf for a long time. The later can be removed with alcohol and some elbow grease.

If they are just gonna be demo rackets, you might as will leave them, and replace the grommets if needed.

Duplicolor works great for me on my car parts. A client of mine sanded down to the graphite, and used a clear coat that never really dried properly.

Honestly, it's very time consuming work.
you should stripping current paint in order to look decent paint job.
it might take more than 6 hours to stripping paint and you have to be very patient.

if you don't want this process. you should just change grommets.

these links are my PJ process.

Yikes! I had no idea it would be that labor intensive. I'll just string them up and use as demos. Thanks for the responses.
