Anyone go for metallic silver on frame?

Post by dmac » Sat Jan 23, 2016 8:20 pm

I see the standard frame paint is a straight silver,

Just wondering if anyone ever tried a metallic silver finish for a bit of subtle bling?
I used to be undecided, but now I am not so sure.

Hi Dmac

I decided on a chrome/silver powder coating on my frame, and I like the finish and don't think it too blingy, however this is my first resto and the one thing I have leaned is to stay away from powder coating, it's probably fine for black but when you have issues with silver and other colours, repairs and patching are very difficult, from now on it will be base coat and two pack clear for me.

Hope I have posted pics properly
