Serotta Ti frame Restoration
I re-polished the rear triangle with 220-600 grit wet paper, steel wool and Mothers Polish.
Then I taped off the newly polished rear triangle with masking tape so I could control the lines and protect those anniversary decals.
Followed by two layers of black Gorilla tape to protect the polished finish and the factory decals. The bead blast process is very aggressive and any parts that aren't protected will get blasted.
I took the frame to my powder coat shop here in Golden for the hook up on a $20 aluminum oxide bead blast.
The end result was amazing, it looks brand new! Titanium frames truly are built to last a lifetime.
