Aaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrr :evil: :x :x

Had my first disaster today bars stem and forks all painted and looking bloody great, so to day was the day to start on the clear coat. Started on the bars and on the first coat it all went wrong. Clear coat running all over the place. I know what I did wrong, a proper school boy error. Tryed to put to much clear on and the can was much to close to the bars :oops:

So now leaving it to dry sand down and start again. :?

Henkel own the Nitromors brand and since about 2006 all they've done is rape the legacy of working products they subsumed into their portfolio. Nitromors doesn't work anymore because the actual ingredient in working paintstrippers was restricted by EU legislation that came into force in 2008. If however you can find Starchem Synstrip with your google-fu, then that still contains naughty ingredient X. What do the Yanks care about stupid EU law? ;-)

Sorry I'm a bit late to this one...


you can find it easy in the u.k. and even on ebay

Another lesson learned: when spraying you stem and bars fit the together, or mask of the clamp area, before you start spraying other wise they wonnt fit to gether, DOH...... :?
