[DML] Re: Powdercoated DMC frames experience anyone?

The "best" way to fix small areas is:
1) Remove the loose epoxy by scraping/picking at it and prying it off
till you get to stuff that is well bonded to the metal. You will know
because the metal will be shiny.
2) Wire brush and/or sand the area clean to bare metal
3) Feather the edges of the epoxy paint around the bare area
4) Apply a corrosion inhibitor/primer like POR 15
5) Sand smooth and color spray with Krylon "Smoke Grey" aeroisol spray
paint. You can get it in Home Depot or most any large paint store that
sells Krylon spray paint. The repair is not as good as the epoxy but
it will be invisible and should last a long time.
