I can't think of any place locally. Who did you hear of in Williamstown. I work with bodyshops and service depts everyday so I can probably see what kind of work they do. Just let me know there name and I will see what I can do

The best thing to do is look for a large industrial painting contractor. I think there is one in Williamstown.

Out side of South Charleston was a painting Co called W.Q. Waters and the did blasting. On Rt 35 at fraziers Bottom is a painting place that may do blasting and in Huntington was a shop the blats and several people took parts to them. I will try to find out about the Fraziers Bottom and Huntington shops!

Theres a place I checked into in Morgantown about a year ago. They gave me a price of 300 dollars to blast and power coat a frame I was working on.

For what it is worth my snow plow frame was powder coated.
Everywhere it flexed the powder coat peeled off. Then it was only a very short time till it was all gone.
If I wanted a paint job to last I think I would go with epoxy.
