Does anyone know anwhere that does frame and fork resprays but do not stove the paint. i.e a wet spray rather than stove enamel/powdercoat etc?

The reason being I have oil/air Headshok suspension forks which i would rather not have to have dismantled prior to painting as they have recently been serviced.

Cheers,

Tom

Even conventional spraying uses a low bake oven.

In the end, a non-stoved finish will chip easily. So it will rapidly look tatty and you will wonder why you didn't take the time to strip the forks the first time...
