How come, I've seen plenty of people getting Konas and Oranges refinished. Admittedly they are normally powdercoated white but there you go :wink:

You really do have far too much time on your hands! I love the end results of your work though.

How long does is typically take you to strip and paint a frame?

Oh, thanks for your comments.
Time is variable. Five hours to strip the frame, a day ara baking frame in distilled water a day to apply the ceramic base. one more day to prepare the masks and the final paint.
