Sorry I'm not a fan. Don't like your colour scheme or custom decals. I have doubts over the longevity of the paint finish too.

Used etching primer and yellow car spray paint.

I'm quite sure the paint will last thanks :lol:
I did the Rock Shox in the same paint 2 years back.

I painted the whole bike about 2 years ago.

wish you hadn't posted that as I am looking closer and starting to feel queasy, in partiucular the red ano parts that tantalisingly do not match the redness of the frame.... still do not think it is that bad.

to harden the paint, place in over set oven to 180 C, when up to temp, turn it off and allow to cook.
