OK, let's paint. Off to Class Act Paint and Powder tomorrow. I didn't really know how far to finish the the frame prep as far as cleaning up the investment cast imperfections and silver flash go. We don't know how much detail work is included in the paint job.
So I probably over did the prep to insure a great paint job. On the next frame, I think I will take it to Clackamas Sandblasting and glass bead it myself for $30.00. Glass beading is excellent for silver flash removal and imparts a small compressive stress layer that improves fatigue life. Plus it takes one hour versus five doing it by hand.
