taking it down to metal is harder then you think and you will NOT just find a spray clear that will hold up
you will have to get it done at a paint place or it will scratch bad and rust like crazy
raw is ok but id go with a cool color scheme that way you dont look like every other trend hopper with
a raw bike and it still looks cool and different

raw isnt neon, its not 'cool' any more...

rawing a frames not hard, it just takes a while, theres a difference. be prepared to spend a few hours getting it right. use nitromors, you might need a few cans of it.

rather than using clear coat, i would try the oil method. cover the frame in motor oil and leave it over night, then wipe off the oil. it will have soaked in to the pores on the metal, preventing any rust.

if you like the seat youve chosen get it. cutting down dropouts can look cool, just make sure you know what youre doing.
