Yes, exactly. I hate to say it, but whenever I see an auction from any of the spots you mentioned, I move right along. I've heard too many stories. Lots more bikes and parts available elsewhere.

Well, for sure you know you've got a coating that will stand up to pretty much anything you can throw at it! Finished project looks great; let us know how it rides :)

I have nothing for you...

Btw, I measured the Campy medium clip and it appears too small for your stated needs. It's 55mm from pedal to clip emd and only about 60mm to the spot the toe would end up.
