Masi rebuild and paint

hey Guys
I just finished putting together a Masi Gran Corsa that was in rough shape to major rust under the original paint . I stripped the bike down to the bare metal and sanded all the rust off then I brought it to a powdercoating company and had them zinc coat and powdercoat . then I re-assemble the bike this morning . over all the paint looks good a little thick in some places but it will never have another rust problem !! tell me what you think . here are some before and after pics !
thanks Pinch

Looks great! The original paint doesn't look at all bad in the photos, but then again they're not close enough to really see the flaws. Are you going to put on new decals? Can you clear-coat over PC?

Looks pretty good for PC, but to me, you need decals on a Masi GC.

And thanks for getting rid of that hideous stem.

What u can do is to sand the finish and then polish it back, that will take care of all the paint problems u have right now.

Many people doesnt know this but black is one of the most complicated colors because any imperfection in the back (surface) will highlight right up in the color. Even more if the guy who painted it is not used to paint bicycles at all.

As for the engravings, those are easy to paint, just grab white or maybe yellow tamiya paint or testors with a tooth pick, drop it over the letters, let it seat a few minutes no matter if overflowed the engraving, then pass your finger over the engraving, that will leave only the letters with paint.

Good luck.
