Yikes! That would seriously freak me out if someone chose to kick up dust and dirt right after painting something! Sounds like you at least got it fixed though, right?POP! Sprayed 2 coats of rust oleum clear for wheels. I’d just sprayed the whole bike and fender then went inside to get another can...and my camera. Got outside to find my wife raking the dirt and kicking up dust out there. Never seen her rake before and she picks that moment. Had to remove weevils from the paint and redo the chainguard. What was a job that was pretty much done at 10AM turned into the rest of the day. I was supposed to be diligently using that time as city planner for Lego Holiday Village.

Hope you can get the paint worked out. That's a very nice shade of red.Chainguard is crazed...sanded back too far after removing plant dust so I sprayed red to touch up thinking it would be fine but they were not yet ready to be pals. The damage was already done, I was super calm...what’s one more crisis?
Showed my Dad pics and he told me as a kid he had one all done up in red with ape hangars and someone stole it. He later saw the kid at the golf course recognized him, found out where he lived the showed up with my grandpa and demanded the #$#@n bike. Got the bike back.
