    Doesn't the next build off build off bikes not built off in previous build offs? Starts Jan 1st, I believe.

    Fingers crossed for you also, you have been a great addition to build off line up, a great sport, and put out a great effort. Hope the last hurdle you get over and make it for voting.
    If not you still have my and I'm sure others respect for the effort...
    Keep pushing

    If considering rattle can vs powder...

    When i lived in a cold weather state, i had been known to heat up my garage with a bullet heater after throwing drop cloths over the bench and toolboxes.

    110 degrees in the garage, then would rattle can a bike and let it cure over the next few hours. Then open the door, air out and heat up again... seemed to get the paint hard enuff to work the bike...

    Maybe a plan B?

    That's a mouthful!! I'm not sure. I'm new here, but if there's a build off for unfinished builds from other build offs, I might have to sign up.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but despite potentially not finishing in time, I'll be much happier in the long run with the powder coat finish. My guy does the whole thing, blasting, paint and clear for $100. I can't go wrong.

    Thanks for all of the suggestions guys, but the frame is with Dale and hasn't been blasted yet. It's a 45 minute drive just to pick it up, and part of me is hoping that he somehow gets it done, so it's best to leave it with him.

    Hey, if I'm not busy putting my bike together, maybe I can dig up some more prizes.

    Yes, on the first the first format for furnishing unfinished builds formerly found failing to find the Finished line; unfinished finds fighting to finish first of the unfinished.
