I have a Colnago C50 with the Pro00 finish. Can the clearcoat be redone without having to redo the graphics as well? If so, does anyone have a recommendation for having that done?

An email to Calfee could probably fill you in on the possibilities.

BTW, beautiful bike!

do you want the whole thing re-cleared? if you just have a few problem spots i think those could get repaired.

I currently have my carbon frame w/ Rick at D&D cycles to get a clear coat respray.

He's located here in the east SF Bay area and provided a beautiful repaint on a Pinarello SL frame years ago for me.

He advised that he would just lightly wet sand the entire frame to remove the existing clear coat ( without hitting the decals) and then resprayed, polished etc. He recommended the entire frame to be resprayed for a smooth even coat all over to avoid any "transition" areas experienced from spot spraying.

I don't have the frame back yet as I told him to take his time with it but he assured me it would look shiny new and have the confidence w/ him from my previous experience along with others folks similar + experiences.

I do not know his lead time but give him a call in Pa to find pricing and time. Bet you a glass of red you will be happy with paint. On west coast others have been referenced. Calfee and Joe Bell are also in that top echelon in my biased view:). Pete
