Today I stripped all the components off my frame and then stripped all the paint off. I used aircraft stripper and was suprised it was pretty simple although that stuff freaking burns! Then I dremeled off all the cable guides, a little nervewrecking but I got through it. Saturday I am going to pick up some paint, but I haven't decided what paint scheme to go with. I'm thinking a two tone, but not sure what colors and what to paint what. Anyone have suggestions? I've thought of doing the seat stays/chain stays/ and headtube orange, then the rest all black... Anyone have suggestions? Pictures of some cool (not hard) 2 tone pain jobs would be awesome. As for paint brand my grandpa told me to get Plasticoat or Duplicolor. Then if I use two colors he said for a primer use a neutral color, like gray. Is that right? Then i'll put a clear coat on it, sticking with the same brand as the paint.
THen on Thursday i'm ordering an IRO hub from Harris, and my grandpa is sending me a rim, then i'll take the rim and hub to the lbs and ask what size spokes i'll need.
All so exciting
