Got some more work done on the fixie this weekend. Started out by taking it all apart, then stripping the paint. Used sandpaper, a wirebrush, and some other tools.
Long story short, just paint over the top of it. There is absolutely no need to go through that much work. The paint covered just fine, regardless of how much sanding I done.
On the top tube of the bike, there were some guides for for brakes/shifting. Didn’t look that cool so with a hammer, ax, and a grinder, they were quickly no more…
After sanding and stripping paint, it was time for paint.
The vise was super helpful. Especially when painting the fork.
Kendall reminded me about a geek lunch that was up at Happy Sumo today so, not being able to turn down another meal of sushi (third time in a week), I headed to Gateway.
I am totally addicted to this stuff, our freezer is full of it.
Any ideas what this is? Lemme know in the comments. First person to answer correctly gets the special validation of knowing they were right on the internet. And what could be better then that.
Someday, I want to takes pictures of doors and wall and make them look really cool like Jon Canlas. Right now, this will have to suffice.
