The good thing about putting themselves on the line is that you can learn at lightning speed. The bad one is that sometimes what you learn is not as great. For instance, today I found that the much undervalued frame, the one I thought "let's take it aside, a couple of hours at the most and it's done", became a tough nut to crack. I spent all the day sanding down rubbish paint (more likely a powder coat) full of residual glue from the previous owner's thousand stickers, even if I tried to remove them previously with pure acetone and elbow grease! Sooo, I have to sand again and I have to finish tomorrow, because everything has to be painted.
In the meantime, two vintage frame where treated with rust locker oil.
And finally... News on the purchases:
- 2 new spray can
- 3 v-brake kit
- another brake caliper
- 2 Schwalbe Lugano
- 2 Schwalbe... attention, please... Fat Frank
- 3 anodized aluminium seat pipe
The point is missed again, a lot of important pieces are not there and the sanding made me waste a lot of time . Tomorrow it's the last train if I wanna paint it! :(
