Brodie progress

Striped and primed the Brodie this weekend. Boy was she a pig.

Glossy from the failed Citrus stripper application. Needed heavier artillery for this job. I did a little snooping online and discovered that Permatex Gasket Remover, part #80646, works great for removing powder coating. Boy did it work...

Shot of the chainstays before the real work begins. This frame is in dirty shape but it seems 100% solid.

Spray on the gasket remover and skidoosh! Powder Coating literally JUMPS from the frame! Your skin jumps off in ribbons too...crazy strong stuff.

Here is a testament photo for why you should not powder coat frames. Moisture wicks along under the paint and stays next to the metal, starting all these little rust spots. mine were all surface and nothing to worry about, but this frame was clearly on its way to the crapper.

Clean like baby butt.

And Primed. Next up...Paint!
