    Nice spotless chrome frame but looks like it's being badly repainted or is that just the pics?

    Ah ha.

    Someone correct me though, aren't the cores painted before being put in the frames?

    I'm getting sunburnt LOL.

    Blimey, just looked at mine, cores painted afterwards by the looks of them. Love this forum, learning every single time.

    Makes the Friday afternoon one even more impressive.

    Hi

    Your EK2 looks fantastic and in good overall condition!

    I love them with patina!

    EK2 cores were usally painted before the EK2 was put together. But some EK2 were one pice construction so they had no choice but to paint it with the frame.

    Thanks

    The cores were painted or prior to assembly but there is evidence to show some were also touched up after they were assembled.
