The razor tip is sweet. I just took the decals off some Force cranks I have for my forthcoming gloss carbon c59, the rest of the build is Di2 but I'm not keen on the shimano cranks.
Took me about 5 minutes!
I used a good quality, small kitchen knife and sharpened the hell out of it, kept sharpening it while working, about 2-3 times. Having the handle on the knife, and it being small (2-3 inch blade) meant I could use Gum's back n forth technique very quickly and safely. This was good to take the last dregs of the decals off and not go too deep into the remaining clearcoat. I got the bulk off initially with fairly pressurised, long drags of the blade.
I'm left with a smooth surface with is dulled from the process, if I wet it, it looks perfect so think I could either buff and polish the remaining clearcoat of just give them a quick blast of clear.
Interested too to hear how the above finish on the forks was acheived.
If it's easy enough I am gonna be sorely tempted to take some of the stupid logos off my C59 when it turns up. CHS-revolution, I'm looking at you!
I hear the logos are painted on, but surely they will be onto a layer of clearcoat rather than straight on the carbon. Any ideas anyone?
This is the frame I'm awaiting...I could quite happily lose the top tube (CHS) logo, maybe seat tube too.
