Paint Prep

Imagine this...a man, a bicycle frame, a bucket of water...all in a bathtub. One can learn a little about how to improvise while spending part of life in a small apartment. I miss my garage. Since the frame needed to be wet sanded and it was too dark to work outside, what are ya gonna do?

It took about an hour and a half on Friday and the same on Saturday to get the sanding done. At the end of each session, there were blue-colored droplets all over the tub, my legs and feet, and my shorts. It looked as though someone had squeezed the lifeblood out of a Smurf.

After sanding, the frame was dried and areas that needed to remain unpainted were masked. These are the last photos of this frame in this color. With luck, the weather will allow for a prime coat today.
