First impression on getting the box was actually relief!

That said, the frames look sweet. Very happy.

Now I just need to find the time to build them. I have too many projects sitting about 70 percent complete...

Glad you received the frames, look fantastic by the way. Real shame With Bob Jackson, as I intended sending a frame this year. I know how you feel with incomplete projects!

Now Bob Jackson is no more, I was just wondering who people are going to use for resprays?

There are these guys - https://colour-tech.co.uk/

Who else would people recommend?

There is a thread on recommended painters on here.

Based on my experience with colour tech, I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole, even if they were the only company left on the planet.

OK, I won't use them then!

Has anyone used Bicycles by Design - https://www.bicycles-by-design.co.uk/se ... rbishment/.

They're local to me, so might be a good option when the time comes.

Wonder if CW is behind the news flow or in front! Chronologically it’s getting hard to keep track...

When I spoke to Donald last Monday, he was pretty unequivocal about what was happening to the business.

No, they’re on it, this was Woodrup’s plan all along I’m guessing.... he now owns the name and can do what the hell he likes.
