Nice and clean! Hydrodipped or painted the frame?

I have tried this frame hydrodipping with a transfer print film couple of times, but it has ended lookind really bad. But I might now try it again with my ongoing freestyle build project, since the end result (when successfull) is looking really good. Like yours here! :)

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
