Normal twist drills can delaminate the composite. Speed and feed rate are important

For a professional job you really want one of these.

That's a real beauty! Good choice :-) I'm thinking of doing something similar with my P2C just the other way around. Matte black on the outside, bright colour on the inside of the fork and stays. I know, I know, much less practical but I like the look :-)

If you don't mind my asking, did you sand down the frame yourself? If so how did you find it? I tried a few frame sprayers in the UK but they will only spray on over the existing paint job and not sand it down to the carbon.

Many thanks in advance,

Ed

Thanks. I'll see if I can find someone to do it. Good luck with the rest of the build.
