I am thinking about buying this Nagasawa frame (I live in Tokyo and saw this on Yahoo auctions Japan).
It is a bit battered and looks like it needs a paint job, the seller says there is just one dent in the head tube from the handlebars hitting it, so I would probably just put a small Kashimax TT protecter to hide it. (Is it possible to remove dents in the tubes?)
Anyway, a friend of mine loves cars and has a complete painting setup in his garage and offered to paint it if I bought it. I found a nice looking Nagasawa decal kit on ebay too!!
What is the best way to prep the frame for painting?
