Thurday paint work

19 03 2009

I am repainting a really nice schwinn road frame.   Pretty darn nice, even when I had the paint off and uses a neat tube set that would be hard to duplicate today.

the paint job scheme is chrome with a candy violette over the top.   This is not real chrome it is actually a paint and this is the first full use on a bicycle I have done.  I am learning a whole lot on this one.  I have done candies of course, masking, no problem but the chrome paint is another animal.  Neat, and my tests show it is pretty darn durable but make a mistake with it after application and essentially its ruined.   Painting is a lot of fixing.  Fact of life but this stuff you can’t fix so better not screw it up in the first place.
