I'm really happy with the green and the kind of 'semi-flat' topcoat that I got, the cream headtube looks great to. The lug detail painting is a bit of a disappointment unfortunately. I was going for british racing green tone in a flat finish. I think I just missed that deep dark green by a shade or two but given computer monitors and selecting powder sight unseen I think it's close enough. The finish feels pretty nice and I'm hopeful it proves very durable and long lasting.
Here is a dump of pictures. I think I'll end up trying my hand at cleaning up the lug painting when I get some time.
|Exit hole for my internal cable routing (bottom of seat tube). There is a matching one up on the down tube as well. I ended up drilling it myself and using a deburring tool to clean it up.|
|Cable guides for the dyno wiring were added. Pretty nice brazing work I think|
|Thanks to Rob at OC for the expertly wrapped package... dyno cable's for the build, a King Cage and a pound of coffee!|
|The build is officially started...|
