The Workhorse Gets Some Love

A loved, but well used Giant Defy came in for some paint repairs.  The pressure was on as it was the customer’s only bike and he was in the middle of a solid training block before the Tour of Bright.  He had scheduled only two rest days while I returned it back to new.

The repairs were pretty standard fare – stone chips, some wall grazing and paint cracks and peeling on the back of the seat post.

Repairs were a combination of some spot filling and paint blending as well as some clear coat repairs.  Some of the masking was a challenge!

The seat post was also tricky as the black was a dark metallic….so a few drops of bright silver into some solid black, match it by eye and and it was just like new.
