    They were very poorly made and were the cheapest frames available of their era, not worth touching IMHO, I've seen several with very excitingly positioned bosses.....

    So I've had a look at the rest of the forum and having been all set to go to Mario Vaz I'm now tempted by Armourtex as they're handily a lot closer.

    There seems to be lots of Vaz hating although very few pictures of the problems, conversely there seems to be lots of Armourtex loving but very few pictures of the finished results with transfers applied.

    I'm just trying to make a decision I've got an alloy and steel frame that I need to do, but could do with really seeing pictures of either finishers work so I can make a reasonable decision.

    I've searched but can't find a lot in the way of pictures to help so far, any help appreciated.

    I tend not to use washing up liquid at all as it contains salts that scratch the paint/lacquer and end up leaving it dull. Hope Shitshifter to clean and then removal of wheels and brakes to apply a wax treatment for shine.
