THURSDAY IN THE (paint) SHOP: red all over


Spent some time catching up with Coat and wanted to share some SV photos with y'all. Because each block of color, each stripe, each word and logo on the 2010 road Speedvagen is masked and painted on (think stencil), this paint scheme has a ton of masking....a test of skill and patience. Maybe we should change Coat's name to "The Monastery".  The Monastery... errr..Zen paint haus?.. Ok, that was just a first stab. Anyhoo Eric, Glenn and Patrick at COAT have been doing an awesome job. Huge thanks to those guys. The details below include custom paint work on the DT hub shells*, masking the underside and non drive blade of a fork to receive panels and graphics, airbrush cleaning in action and a bunch process shots and shots of finished celery and red Speedvagen. Yes!

Hope all is well out there.


* note: The hubshells wil eventually get a matte clear. The scuff marks are there from pre-graphics app. sanding
