racerx6466 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Starting Project....

Finally. Getting my truck stripped down and starting over from the bare frame. Was wondering if anyone here could direct me to a place to get the frame powder coated. Called one place and got a price of $850. Too high? Low?

Dunno, never had a frame done but I would be interested in the going rate.
I have used Andrews Powder Coating in Chatsworth for smaller stuff (headers and such). I know they do bike frames. Check 'em out and see.

Going to use it off road. Figured if i'm going the extra mile to strip it down to bare frame, might as well powder coat. This is new to me also

I did my own painting back when I had more energy. Also back before I became a Ford guy...

Saved some $ and learned a lot about trucks with this project. This was the garage I had when I lived in Illinois.
