Griff motor works Bristol. They do motorcycle frames for hells angels etc. Not a scary place to visit at all.

I had to wait a couple of extra days because the guy wasn’t happy with the first finish. Bit of a perfectionist as it looked fine to me.

Also couple of Konas

What’s the best way to get pics on here from my phone rather than link to flickr etc.

Having used a number of houses in the past, Bob Jackson is the only house I now use. They know cycle stuff. Mas and clean where is necessary, and don't deliver you back a frame full of sand.
Plus they'll do a collection and return service.

Presumably you can use pretty much any car colour?
If what about Toyota blackish red? This is it on my car, looks a dark plum in the shade but put the sun on it and this happens - would look stunning on a PACE;

just about any colour imaginable. I have been looking at all sorts of powder finishes. Some mentioned here look very different elsewhere so Im going to have to do some legwork and see for myself.

Might be worth finding someone local and going and having a chat. I'm having a frame finished for my daughter at the moment and I hadn't appreciated the depth in some of the colours until I saw them in the ... um ... powder (as it were).

Obviously I ended up going for satin black :D

That's exactly what I did last time. Thought about so many options, satin black won the day.

Yes, that's the plan. There's a place in Sandbach that's not a million miles away and they do a good range of finishes. I am going to take the frame with me too just so there can be no surprises.

As for the paint above, always had a soft spot for Nissan Midnight Purple, just not sure this is the place for that. Again, so many options. I think I'm leaning towards powder rather than paint just for durability
