Bianchi Campione Del Mondo 1952 restoration

As usual, got it at a really bad condition

All headset and BB assembly are out

Heading to get the paint strip and chrome

Just ordered the decals

Let's hope there's no surprises after the paint has striped!

The frame has been striped from it's original paint and chrome

I have mask the lugs (chrome portion) and primed

It's now ready for the base coat

The paint is dried and cured!

Now this my favorite part, applying the decals!

Applying the decal is not as easy as it looks

You need really good eye/hand cordinations

Not for those butter fingers'!
