    Your photo reminds me of my living room.

    That is just one corner. There is another bike out of shot and three more in the kitchen. All "Matafied." You are gonna love those white Innovative tires - especially paired with Girvins. The blue bike in my photo floats over everything.

    Thanks guys well the frame media blasted and it's in "Q" for powder coat .
    I have to decide weather or not to do the wheels the same color or spectra coat them. That's my only delay right now

    I striped the wheels But I was I informed that the aircraft stripper may cause an issue with the powder coating and blister if I went that rout I cleaned them well and Neutralized the paint remover but who knows ?

    Not a good day ! The red did not cover evenly it's pink and red I'm not sure what to do now I have no idea if the red powder is the problem or the converge was not even But it can't be fixed unless I start over

    Well, you do have a nice two-tone red going there....seriously, it's not a bad look at all. If you don't paint the rims you won't have to worry about any color matching...just thought. Or go with a complimentary color on the rims...

    Thanks oddJob ,But the photo does not show just how bad it is , i can't invest the parts in this build if its not right . You can see there's a huge problem in color when your looking at it from top to bottom . I already looked in to the idea oh getting some candy color paint to try to fix it , but i'm not sure that would work either .

    Roughing up the powder and painting is the fastest way to fix it I can think of.

    Something to post while the frame is being sorted out.
    I have a set of wheels powder coated and I spectra coated these and will tint them and see what ones I like best .
    The spectra coat proved to be a challenge as the pre clean would not all rinse out of the double wall hoops. And would stain the process and cause dark spots in the spoke holes . It took a few times. But I was a bit torn as that's one main reason I bought the system to do cool wheels . Single wall hoops much easier .
