I'm working on a project where part of the frame would be painted, and part of the rear CS and SS would be left in raw stainless steel (a liittle bit like IF is doing on their SSR frames). I have good relations with my painter (powder coating only) who is doing some really nice work, but I don't think he has ever done that kind of job.
Is there some advice I could give him to get a clean transition ? For example, is it possible to remove the masking tape before cooking the paint in the oven ? He's doing a 3 layer process (anti-corrosion / color / clear-coating) so it probably does not simplifies things...
And in case the result is not perfect, which kind of polishing material should I look for to remove excess paint and clean-up/polish the edge of the paint ?
Thanks for your help !
