I have just about had enough of painting the bloody frame now, I still need the clear coat it but the weathers not great and its getting colder and wetter, so not great conditions for spraying clear coat. What are the minimum temp for spraying clear coat, any one know?

Head tube badge on just it see what it looks like next to the blue.

Cheers Brian

Yes the BB and headset are to be binned .

Sorry but this has been put up in the loft untill next year, I'm not going to risk all my hard work and paint by spraying in cold wet weather.

See you next year.

:? :shock: :?

What about setting up a heater in your spray area an hour before, on a dry day?
