As you are in Hampshire, try Rotrax in Southampton, they are apparently good at getting paintjobs sorted out. I believe they send them to Vaz.

I have never used them myself, used Chas May - but he's upped and moved.

Just picked the frame up from the coaters - Very Happy :D :D

£40 and turned around in less than 24 hours!!!

Add Calmac Metal Finishers in Gosport to the list! Phone 02392 511440
speak to Rod

They also do metal spraying I wonder what a zinc passivated frame would look like :lol:

By Jove! That looks good.
I have have had bad experiences with Vaz by the way. I suppose if you stay local you can actually knock back an unsatisfactory job when you go round but I was stuck with a really crap finish on a Flying Scot frame and had to send it back at my expense. Their finishing leaves a lot to be desired - dimples, runs and crazing - all in one £95 job!
Also, an earlier job on a Cinelli steel frame ended up with RUST coming through within a year. Not good.
I use my local spray shop now - £30 for a respray and the guy does airbrush stuff for beer.
