A frame well worth the investment of a new paint job. Well done.

Oh wow, that looks great! I have a Fierte IT (similar to the Ottrott) and this is giving me some ideas, for sure. Well done, Eric.
Seat tube paint stops just above FD mount - nice.

The scale pattern is really nice with the Bluefin fade. Great progression.

Did they strip the paint in between sprays, or is it one on top of the other?

I imagine they did since the previous clear had some chips in it.

Truly stunning. Have you ever thought about having a set of deep rims painted too? Given your skill with building wheels and obvious love of this frame, maybe slide all your aesthetic chips in? Just a thought.

Tempting, but for now I have a set of shallow carbon tubulars planned for this bike.
