Painted up some rust spots

I decided to paint over some yucky rust spots today. After it dries, I plan to install a new Ricochet skid plate. I got a little excited and painted the kickstand too.

I did a small section on the frame last year and the color match was perfect! Gotta love cheap rattle cans from Autozone!

Very cool  . How much sanding was involved ? My Drz could use a touch-up . Thanks , 

I just used some automotive sand paper med grit and hand sanded until most of the rust was gone. The rusty primer takes care of what I missed.

I need to touch up where I masked it off, as the lines are visible (I'm a crappy painter), but the color came out nice and my rusty bottom is no more. I also painted my kickstand while I was at it.
