Thanks for the feedback so far.

As for not finishing. Frame has a damaged chain stay and cannot be ridden. Chrome is also shot on the socks. Otherwise there would be no need to refinish.

Powder coating is not an option.

I was eliminating the seat tube panel mostly because there are no vertical style Carré markings. I considered a ST panel with a Carré shield and WC markings to frame the panel and rejected the idea. But then I looked at a bike that is on my desk top and it does essentially just that. It works. So seat tube and down tube panel (along with head tube) may be the way to go.

Still mulling the color choices. Some good input there.
