hi all

I am just starting a new project that will involve getting a carbon frame (from ebay) resprayed, does anyone have any recommendations? preferably in the south east, drivable from Reading would be ace.

thanks

I have had some really good results with a pressure pack can, assuming you want a single color, it is really simple. Then get some decals on and a few coats of clear

Don't paint it, adds weight and no value.

thanks but my aim for the project is to create something that looks smart and professional but also unique with some retro decals. needs to be a pro job to make me happy  41

I had some work done by an outfit called Carbon Cycle Repairs recently - the finish was good and they will do paint only.

Based in Derbyshire though.

I looked into it with a couple of people, and both quoted me £400 for a fairly simple design. Want it done well, it ain't cheap.

Hmmm, I know someone who has just set up to take on projects such as this, but he's in N/E Scotland  103

£400 seems a bit steep, have you tried Argos or Ooey?

I had found argos but not ooey. Other web forums seem to also recommend Brian Rourke. I will see, I have bought a second hand wilier and the plan is to get it a single colour with retro block style wilier decals, frame was 250 and hope to get respray for less than that so it is something unique but at a reasonable price.

I've used Atlantic Boulevard in the past.

They're in Bury though, so you'd need to post it.

I am liking ooey because I can drive and drop it off but will depend on the price, not picked up frame yet so its not an instant requirement. Their work looks good but they need to do some work on their website!

Yeah they tend to use facebook for most of their stuff and the website looks like an after thought
