The frame prep always takes a good chunk of time. When do I stop filing? When do I stop sanding? What will show up under the paint? These are the questions I ask myself with every bike I make/paint. And the answers are so subjective. There are certain places (on dropouts for example) that I like to see some evidence of file marks and will stop before it looks like a CNC made piece. While on lugs and fillets, I want them to be near flawless. Whether or not the paint is solid or metallic also makes a huge difference on when to put down the sanding strips. Well, I stopped and put primer on this one today and there’s no going back now! #bicyclepainting #epoxyprimer #lug #chapmancycles
