[quote="SEANSTEPHENS to be honest i dont think the finish would have been any better if i had it powdercoated, its had a lot of coats but it does look impressive..... after 7 cans worth of paint its easily stronger than the last paintjob that argos did for me and i doubt i would bother with powdercoaters again after this.... the prepwork though was a nightmare, it took forever to get it right

hhmmm....cheers for the reply. i have stripped and polished ali frames but not yet had a go at repainting steel. did think of a two tone job on a frame i have but one solid colour is going to be easier.
keep up the good work on that build,looking good so far.[/quote]

Cheers 8)
