Below left is the finished area. All these bike are finished ready to be returned to their owners. The picture on the right is of our spray booths; this is where the great paint work is applied. We invested heavily here so we could get the best finishes possible and easily put through the 80-100 frames we currently do per month.
Below is our paint prep bay. This is where we do the prep work and the detail work like multi colour stripes, decals and airbrushing. Matt and Damian are the guys who do this fantastic work and they are in the picture. On the right is our combination spray booth baking oven. Note it is clean - always be suspicious of a spray booth that is a mess, that usually means they have no pride in their work.
This is our carbon repair booth. On the left is our carbon repair room where all the sanding and grinding is done. On the right is out carbon layup room. The idea of separate areas is to keep the layup room clean and dust free so we can ensure the carbon we lay up on your bike is free of contamination. Both areas have dust extraction. More than 90% of our repairs are done in prepreg carbon fibre. We usually only do wet layups to match cosmetic top layers.
The picture below left are our carbon ovens. The oven on the right is used most often. We usually bake prepreg carbon at under 80 degrees Celsius for 6-8 hours. This is at a low temp so we don't melt any of the resins and glues that bond your frame together. Most of these soften once heated much over this temp. The oven on the left can go much higher and we would usually only use this for over flow or if we need to cure something at higher temps, like when we make a new section of frame or there is no risk of melting other components. The bench in this picture is where we do the Di2 cabling. It has a foam surface so we don't scratch your frame, we also have our internal cameras set up here.
The picture on the right is our Di2 electronics area which is were we do modifications for internal batteries and modify wiring harness's as required.
Here is our paint mixing room, note we only use PPG premium products so you get a premium job. The only exception to this is fluro colours and we use SEM of House of Colour. Right is our Roland decal printer/cutter which enables us to create the great decals and stencils we use. Of course you need someone who knows how to use it too! Note the custom Zipp decals, we can make all sorts of custom wheel decals BUT one off decal sets cost about $300 fitted. If you want original it is cheaper to buy them genuine, it is simply cheaper to make 200 sets than one custom set.
