After a couple of new builds, merckx and pinarello concept, ive run out of cash but still not sure what to do with this colnago master pui.
Ive heard that there was a craze in the states, a few years ago, for letting top marque steel bikes go rusty INTENTIONALLY then they would lacquer over with silica type spray, thus stopping the oxidisation and stopping the rust in its tracks. Is this true? If so, this might be my solution (for now until i can afford proper repsray). The rust will prob continue but at a very small pace? Enough to last my lifetime?
Whats everyones thoughts on this?
Well, they say rust never sleeps but if you keep the frame indoors and warm and dry the rust will be as good as asleep. As for the paintwork I'm in agreement with everyone else that its to good to respray, its only original once
I'd look for a custom airbrush painter, they should be able to strip back the badly chipped area and feather in a new section. They will be able to mix a near perfect match and if its done right it should be all but invisible.
