A very 50% effort respray is underway.
After using a hairdryer to help peel off the stickers and head badge, I cleaned the frame with soapy water and white spirit. I then wet sanded the paint as it wasn’t in the worst condition and I couldn’t be bothered to go for a whole strip and respray. So hopefully, just removing the clear coat and spraying over the top should be good… There are a few dings and scrapes that you can see if you look hard enough, but I’ve recently come to the realisation that nobody looks at your bike as closely as you do. If you don’t care, no one else will even notice.
I’ll get done liberally clear coating this tomorrow hopefully… May have to find some more clear coat however. Then I’ll leave it inside to cure for however long it takes the last few parts to arrive in the post (or at least a good few days).
The colour is Spray.bike’s ‘Peacock’ which BLB appear to have ran out of. My logic has been that more paint is not necessarily more better. Is that right? Someone must be a diy respray wiZard here. So hopefully I won’t need any more paint now. Just a good few coats of clear. But if anyone happens to have some Peacock cans about, lmk.
