Have you put all the bits in little labelled bags?

I reckon a Black Powerdercoated frame would look good.

Have you put all the bits in little labeled bags that would of been a good Idea.

Powerder coated frame I've heard they not that good as It splits up when doing up nuts and bolts.

A lot of the chaps over on the RD forum got their frames powdercoated by Triple S and I think they were pleased with the results. Stove enamelled frames are better but I am pretty sure that is only suitable for steel frames.

I've seen a 400 with a black powder coated frame and it looked magnificent. You can mask off the areas where bolts nip up to avoid tearing can you not?

I would go with the Black Powerdercoated frame because for one it looks smooth and cool and polishing it will make your cleaning time go up by 25%

But what ever you go with I'm sure it will look sweet
