Unfortunately, the sun didn't shine. But I took some photos.

All the best mate... I’ve enjoyed your build. I’ve also always wondered about a home done paint job and would like to know how it’s holding up compared to a factory job? Looks great!

I stress that the painting was not homemade in either case.
I believe that the painting is a separate profession that,
I entrusted to a professional for the best results.
The fork was made by a car polish specialist.
I did the complete service and paint removal myself.
In any case, I am satisfied with the painting.
I dare say that fork painting is much more beautiful and durable than the original factory painting.
We also paid much more attention to detail on the frame than on the original factory painting.
Corrosion protection was of paramount importance to the frame.
The undercoat was made with 2K primer.
The time will show in each case how durable the paintings are.

I think she prettier than Ritchey and wider, more comfortable.
Only one Race Face grip is missing. 8)
