Can we see it anyway?
Show us please
Only took one pic:
That looks pretty nice to me! I guess if it's not what you want, it's not what you want though.
It looks like a technically well executed paint job but you were right to get rid. Gold has no place on a bike.
Quality of workmanship looks good. I really hope you can work it out with your mate.
The quality of the finish was never in question just that he’d not ticked the boxes I’d asked him to and had done a lot of things I don’t really like: stripes, mix of matte and glossy with hard edges and a gold, khaki, red, grey color scheme. Any of those elements on their own I could have lived with but they all added up to a paint job that just wasn’t for me.
I flatted it back on Monday so it’s ready for a re-do but my man is on holiday for the whole of February and has a lot to turn around before he goes so chances are it’ll be into March before I get it back...
How did he take it when you asked him to re do?
Fair play to you. It is such a quality product it needs to be exactly what you want in terms of finish
That's quite horrible but to be fair it is "loud and bright"
Pretty offended but we’ve made our peace
3rd time’s (hopefully) a charm
Man all your projects make for such good readin
I'll just keep bumping this
