I'm intrigued. I see the point in painting the tube or inside the blank with transparent or semi transparent plastics but anyone ever had any trouble with delamination of tube from blank?

I scuff up my tubes before gluing ( using epoxy for a variety of reasons) to give a sounder key for the glue. If you paint the surface then my concern would be delamination at the paint / glue interface. Has this ever troubled anyone?

Regards Ian
