Well finally got round to getting the crusty old P2's blasted & powder coated (great job by First Choice Finishes in Exeter), and just applied the correct decals too (ditto by Gil). Here are a couple of before & after shots...just make the frame look a little ropey now! Well I bought her new in '91 and have covered 000's of miles on her, so she does have an exuse for looking a little tired. Frame next year I think - any thoughts on whether to stick with the original Black, or go with White as a nice contrast with the black forks??? '91 Cinder Cone BTW.

Very smart indeed.

What material does Gil_m do his decals in?

Digital printed vinyl, or water-slide stuff with lacquer?

Tend to use digitally print vinyl or screen print on some jobs

Far easier to apply than water slide and tend to be more durable

Forks look really good
