At this point I feel like I am close to call it quits and just paint it. Now it is at the point of diminishing returns and the frame is stripped enough to get a good paint job on it. Any thoughts? I think if I put some more time into sanding it, the headtube deserves a little more time.


A little late for this kind of comment, but I have to ask: Why didn't you just apply paint stripper on the aluminium part ? It would have been done in minutes..? !!
It would have left you some more time to work on the carbon part...just saying...

I was wondering the same, but could paint stripping damage the carbon? Also the carbon/aluminum joints are crazy looking.

Whatever happened? Do you lose interest suddenly in the project?

Either that or he got so excited with building it up he forgot to report back to weightweenies. Shame, I was looking forward to watching the build.
