get a beer!
because if i want to do a real proper restoration, i have to let it paint professionally, so why not give it a try myself
well it would save you 250 quid and 12 weeks sitting in someones warehouse doing nothing
No kidding, i give it a shot to play with "the sponge", don't now where it goes but i'll see......it will be fun that's for sure!! Want to try to match the frame with all the bleached out parts, might put some worn out XTR on it to be in style, old worn tyres, can restore it always later.....and will
fake ageing..I like the concept..if it might end up going to a prima donna paint shop then yes why not have a go yourself..
I've often wondered why more people do not do this..have a go first, the most you will lose is free time but if it works a big smile and a great looking bike could be the pay off
looking forward to see how this comes out chap
