  • You come to any conclusions about primer?

    Going to try some epoxy primer. Lechler 29107, probably.

    Think you’re doing it with a proper setup, compressor and gun right?

    Yep. And spray booth.

    I’ve painted four frames with a couple different zinc rich primers now

    The Lechler 29107 has zinc phosphate in it, apparently, so hopefully it'll be pretty good at resisting corrosion. Although to be honest, being a bike tart, I'm more concerned about the finish than longevity.

  • ive heard some of the 2k rattle can clears are good

  • @Biggles567 cheers for suggestion, I'll look into it.

  • i found where i heard it, this crazy german guy­mko

    he's entertaining at least, seems sort of clued up. Theres links in the description for the paint/clear

  • He is very good!

  • Is there anyone 'on here' that has access to a shot-blaster?
    I'm getting a frame made with Winston at Varonha and it looks likely that it will delayed because his usual shot-blasters will have to close for lockdown.

    I was wondering if there was anyone who wanted to earn a quick buck and who could do it without breaking the lockdown rules?

  • I wish I had a shot blaster. Aurum might do it for you? Steve's a nice guy, so as long as you can be bothered to get it to Dartford and back he maybe would do it. I'm pretty sure they're staying open, they were open last lockdown.

  • Cheers : )
    Going to Dartford is certainly better than having to wait patiently for exciting things...
    I'll look him up and see what he says, thanks for the tip.
