Any ways to get a racket re-painted?
Is there any ways to get a racket re-painted? The paint on my racket falls a little every time I scratch it with the ground. Now, the graphite inside even shows up...

I don't want to do it myself...does anybody know where to get it done in Hong Kong? And is it possible to get it re-painted with the same colour and style just like the ones coming out of the factory?

Lol, it would be interesting to know-- this kind of information out in the open might be misused for people to make fakes though

1. Stripping the paint off my racket with some fine sandpaper.
2. Apply automotive paint primer
3. Apply automotive paint
4. Use a shiny gloss coating if needed.
(copied from another thread)
What is the "automotive paint" as mentioned in the thread? Can anyone explain to me using Chinese? (just use private message, I'm afraid that any non-English posts are prohibited here)

It's not cheap though, I've used a tube to touch up a car once, and a tube that contains less than a tube of toothpaste will cost your more than 20$ CAD...

On the grommets
Don't you have to remove the grommets to repaint first? I have done touch ups with my airbrush and they turn up just fine.
I have wanted to repaint my racket but am put off by the hastle of removing and reinserting the grommets. Anyone with any experience on this?
