Respray advice?

Postby marshy01uk » Sat Nov 03, 2012 10:23 am

Hi, I would love to bring my LOOK 595 back to its original glory again, don't get me wrong it looks stunning but they are several areas that the paint work has chipped ie seat post, chainstay, forks. I have emailed LOOK via their website but never received a reply. Does anyone know who would have the expertise to do this or offer any other advice?
Thanks
Winter/Training: Trek 1.9
TT: Planet X Stealth Pro with extra carbon bling!
MTB: Trek Fuel EX6 + GIANT XTC 29er
Race: LOOK 595
Fixie: Dolan

Atlantic Boulevard - better quality and more durable than the original IME but not cheap.
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

Try Argos Racing Cycles in Bristol. Had mine repsrayed in May.. Looks amazing! Cost about £200. Had to go without bike for about 4 weeks though - which nearly killed me. :( Well worth is though. Would say maybe winter would be a good time to do as will be quieter - but then everyone may think the same.

Anyway, website is www.argoscycles.com
