Dale, Mark,

I have very recently had two frames resprayed, using some of Mike's decals (the Presto headbadge and the seattube bands of both the Zieleman and the Presto). Both frames have clearcoating, the Zieleman much more than the Presto, although I can't see the difference. Although the decals are very thin mylar (is that a kind of vinyl?), an edge is clearly visible under the clearcoat. I don't think it's a problem at all, it's only visible with good light, and if you look for it. Mike has been switching printers (again), so maybe the material used for printing is even thinner now. If the wooljersey site is up again, you can view the resprayed frames there (Freek's racefietsen); the edges are kind of visible in the pics.
