So you may or may not know that we run an 'Introduction to Paint' course at Cole Coatings Workshop.
A few people have asked for more information and to see the work that's coming out of these courses so I've set up a dedicated thread to show the some of the work and answer any questions.
Feel free to ask anything about the processes and paint in general and I'll answer as best I can.
If you fancy taking part in one of our courses, let us know that you're from the forum and we'll give a 10% discount, making the course total only £720 all-in.
Here's a few shots from the workshop and full build shots from the Quirk and Hartley framesets that were finished here. Full disclosure; both Caren and Rob already have a firm grasp of the fundamentals of refinishing so their schemes are a little more advanced in terms of technical features - namely, the additional stainless masking on the Hartley and the use of a specialist candy hybrid product on the Quirk.
Couple of full build shots...
My frame I built on a dave yates course needs re spayed! This looks like a great way to do it. I'll be in touch probably not until next year though
Good luck with your frame build.
Is it a 1 day thing?
Will start saving!
It's four individual visits to our workshop.
Day 01 - Substrate prep and priming
Day 02 - Working the primer ready for paint / graphic prep
DAY 03 - Paint and Clear
DAY 04 - Flatting and Polishing
Looking forward to it.
Ditto on the saving
Another one from a session today.
After clearcoat and polishing.
I have a carbon frame I'm looking to refinish.
Carbon is fine.
