I didn't build a fork. Mostly because I picked up this new Kesteral fork for $45 and I was done with it. It's hard to beat that.
The frame was primed and sanded with Rustoleum primer, then painted with Rustoleum high performance, blue. The blue finish turned out to be more orange peel texture than gloss. The white is Krylon Gloss, it's turned out pretty well considering it's spray paint. Of the two Krylon has always turned out best.
On the scale of 1 to 10 I'm talking about 3 on the blue, and 5 on the white. Either way hardly anything to crow about, but this info is here none the less. I'll have some more detailed photos soon
