New decathlon stem arrived a few days ago (they are a real nice shape for not much money).
I think I'll leave it black instead of painting this one
was considering that...'ll leave the dirt on there for now
Tycoch, not far off
Yeah, probably should have waited for the matte, but I'm an impatient div so I went glitter.
It looks ok but it would have been better if I hadn't. Too bad, I've done it now.
Loosely built up for now
Top tip, thanks.
I'm not sure if the sparkle would be too much, but also I could do that today instead of waiting until next weekend
That's really kind cheers, I've just ordered an 80mm online.
I'm in Swansea so wouldn't be able to make a collection.
Cheers, I'll have a look over there now
All in all I've found the spray.bike stuff really easy and fun to use.
I could have got a better finish if is taken more time with prep and building up the paint a bit lighter but with the messy overspray/splats of paint look I was going for I don't think it matters too much.
With this paint job I'm pretty sure I won't have to wash the muck off it too often as it already looks like it's covered in mud?
I'm really looking forward to building it back up
