OK, I'm getting to the point now where I want to smash things!

Can anyone tell me where I can go for a frame respray..... someone who not only resprays but also does tinted lacquering please?

Bob Jackson's only do clear lacquer, I've no idea about Argos or Colourtech. Can anyone help at all please?

Not sure if they are still at it but when I had my Kona Fire Mountain stolen I had an insurance job respray at Abel Baker Cycles in Bishops Stortford Hertfordshire.


They outsourced it to a guy affiliated with the shop who used silver base and several coats of blue lacquer. I was very pleased with durable finish.

Maybe worth a bell just to get a referral to the guy in person.

That's a good lead, I'll give them a ring tomorrow. Thank you very much for that.

My Kilauea has a Colourtech respray - masked orange and clear lacquer over a silver metallic base. It's not really my cup of tea (the previous owner's choice) but it's a tidy job.
