What would it cost to have an entire frame powder coated?

Well I know nothing about this company but they list average costs for powder coating and they say $550 to $700.

LOOKING GOOD. I'm about to do the same thing myself.

Are you doing POR-15 with a topcoat of gloss black?

Regarding powdercoating, from what I understand about powder coating - it chips. It's also not easy to touch up if needed.

SURE DOES LOOK GOOD though.

If powder coating is done correctly it won't chip as easy as paint will.

Agreed,but Por-15 is a bit tougher than common paint,and far cheaper than powder-coating,I'd think.

The gloss you see is from the plain black por15, After I took the pic I put on their chassis coat product.I am brushing both products on. The por15 went down pretty nice, as far as the chassis coat it does not level as well as the por15 so you can see brush strokes I wish I would have sprayed that on.

After Chassis coat, it is a duller finish which I wanted, keep in mind I did nothing but blast and paint. I was not concerned with a perfectly smooth frame so I did not sand and fill imperfections.
