I was going to paint my frame and I got about halfway through sanding the paint off and decided to get a quote for powder coating. The guy will sandblastand do my frame and forks for 50$ oh and its two different colors. My friend is getting all his paint removed and clear coated for 30$. So instead of wasting time with spray paint(which cost me 30 dollars) you can get powder coating done plus it coms out 100 times better.
Idk just thought Id tell you guys about it, have any of you gotten your stuff powdercoated?

Yeah I know... its like 150 to do a quad frame at any other place.
But we found this guy in the most ghetto looking place off the side of the road and theres a bunch of mexicans working there. Its so scary going there lol but my friends dad who used to get plane engine frames painted there said its legit and really good quality.
He(the owner) seems like a nice guy and I trust him with our stuff. he had a lot of fences and stuff in the lil warehouse that he was working on.
oh and what else is cool is that he will be done by monday and we dropped it off today.
