Hey guys, just letting you know I am not gone or anything, I got a new position at work and have been training for it. I have cranked out a session, and managed to wreck my ankle some. Footplant over a roller hump thing at the plaza to ankle cruncher. It was awesome. Also I have been sanding the THICK powdercoat off my Odyssey Flatland fork. I would use paint stripper but in my experience with Powdercoat and stripper, it takes 3-4 coats to clean it to where I need to sand it.

SO here is my progress after an hour or so of 150 grit. Gonna shine er up good and clear it up some to keep rust at bay. And YES, this does mean I will be front braking it again. Yaaaaay!



P.S. My son could be here TODAY!!!!!! WOOOO!!!!!

P.P.S. I miss you guys tongue (No and/or all homo)

To remove powdercoat- Paint stripper, wire brush, paint stripper, wire brush, paint stripper, wire brush. Bench mounted wire wheel to finish it off before clear coat. If you weren't "rawing" it then industrial sandblasting works well to re-powdercoat.

P.S. hope everything is good with your son, kids are rad, I got 2

Congrats on the kid man!

Im also down for the count riding wise and it sucks, gonna take some time and dial in some new paint, etc.

I've always used paint stripper and then sanding to get the last few patches off.

Thanks dudes! He'll be here Monday! Haven't finished the paint removal, work and life has caught up. Hopefully this weekend I get it done and the fork cleared and installed with the stoppers. Might even quick strip the stoppers down tongue
