Problems in Restorationville
Well we have our first major issue with the build. Josh had a feeling that the silver color of the Liquid Coating did not appear the same as the Metal Swatch that I signed off on. We are trying to match the K45-286 Silver of the Porsche as closely as possible and have the durability of this coating. Well he had a hunch and I think him being a photographer and working with shades and colors every day helped him identify the issue. So I sent the swatch that I was provided some months ago that I accepted and he has matched it up to the bike and it is not even close. So back to the Liquid Coaters all the parts will go tomorrow. It is his feeling that they did not put the clear coat on the bike as they were suppose to and we will find out if that is the issue. Below is a picture of the swatch up next to the newing coated frame and as you see, it is not going to do. Bound to happen with any restoration, issues like this, but the guys who did the coating said if it does not match the original swatch they would take care of it, all it means in some delays.
