Just got myself a new project.



A roughed up faith 3 like the one in the image above.. Frame will be stripped down to bare metal before powder coating..

First obstacle is frame color... Ive narrowed it down to.

Gloss black.
gloss white.
matte Black.
Marrakesh brown.

most colors above are self explanatory but Marrakesh brown is a BMW color that ive liked for a while, but im not sure its a DH bike color..
see below..



Any input on color is appreciated..

started to gather some parts.
got myself a new linkage/pivot bearing set. also a FSA headset/bearings.
frame came with a BB though until i strip it down im not sure what it is
and a Fox DHX 4.0 rear shock..

A thing i am missing from the std frame are. 2 pivot spacers.. not sure if i can pick some up separately or if i will have to buy a full linkage bolt kit.

hey gents.
whilst stripping down the frame ive hit a problem.
i cant budge the bottom pivot bearings (orange dust shield) ive tried a couple of different methods posted on the net but no joy. they are solid.
Am i doing something wrong.
also there was a bolt and a spacer missing. any tips on where to get replacements? or should i just visit my LBS.

btw im in the uk
cheers Andy
