Thank you for your replies. Is there a grey ARC on this forum that's only clear coated?

Not that I’m aware of, mine and Silverfish had ours painted - as did mkozaczek, not sure about the others

Mine has a very fine silver metallic flake in the clear coat but only on the grey, as it was a bit too flat and boring left battleship grey, see page of my build thread (link in signature)
I also had the forks and crown colour coded the same as the frame

Your frame is late enough that I’m sure there is a powder coat RAL designated for these frames. My point was to comfirm the earlier process to achieve a gray frame.

Mike

your like the Oracle of Delphi, or should that be "the Oracle of Durango"


If its defo RAL7036 then its Silverfish 1 JustKev 0 ....and I went with JustKev :oops: although I was off the richter scale with my initial choice !
and to be fair I'm more than happy with RAL7040

Sound great please post a few pics, would be interesting to see if there is any noticeable difference with RAL 7042 when on a frame rather than a swatch card.
