Default Re: To Paint or Powdercoat?

powdercoating will stick better than most paints you will use, it might not give as prof finish as a good paint job though, but the durability of it in some cases out weighs this IMO...To get those forks sandblasted and powdercoated would cost me under 30 bucks here in OZ so its also very affordable, i just had a set of bull horn bars done at powdercoaters, my mate takes alot of frames there over the years, he didnt even want to charge him to have the bars sandblasted and powdercoated. Simple colours like black you will find get done quicker than colours as there is often alot of black pieces getting powdercoated where as colours you will often have to wait longer for, from past experience, might be different in the USofA
