Progress report

dealing with Thai contractors and companies recently has been very up and down ,, sent my Ducati Frame, wheels , swinging arm , and other bits off for powder coating also the Tank , mudgurds and other parts off for repainting and decals ,, and swinging arm off for polishing and a load of nuts bolts brackets andsmall parts off for Yellow Zinc passivating ,,,
I was ssured that the colours and finishes I chose from these companies , would be what I specified .....


WHAT actually happened was not quite that!!!!!!!

The frame and wheels were specified anthracite powder coat , 2 engine cases were specified as satin black powder coat and foot rest mounts were specified Silver powder coat what I got back was everything SILVER powder coat !!!!!! its a lovely quality job but ???
oh and the polished swing arm was POWDERCOATED silver like the frame ....

Then the paint work I specified RAL 1028 which is Melon /Yellow and is a classic 1974 ducati colour a type of orange ,, with black decalling ,,,,what I got back was Classic ducati rosso red and white decalling , again its a lovely quality job ????

and the yellow zinc passivate plated parts came back standard silver zinc plated ?????? again an excellent quality job but??????

Im not going to make a fuss ,, its just not worth it,, they just dont get its and the bike will look lovely and like new when finally assembled but WTF , why cant the Thais do what they are instructed and promised to do ????? Its always like this even for the biggest companies thats why the always have Chines, Westerners or Japanese managers so it get done right
