You dont, with composite you just lightly sand (sanding into the carbon would weaken the frame) the paint down to get a key for the next layer of paint and thats your preparation done, then off to the sprayers.

:wink:

The niece is off to the states next month for a couple of years nannying, so gonna try and get her to post some SIS cable to me, until then the BMX cable will have to do.
