Default Powdercoating

Those of you that have had your frame powder coated, what did it cost you?

Cost depends on several factors.

I charge $100 in labor to coat a frame. Powder cost between $15 and $35
per pound, and it takes a pound to a pound and a half.

If you did all the prep (cleaning, media blasting, taping, etc.), your looking
at around $120 to $150 for the job. If the powder coater has to do all the
prep, add another $150 to the cost.

I just commissioned a batch of color matched Shasta White
from Tiger Drylac. Custom matched colors require minimum
orders (in this case 250 lbs). I keep about half for my
restoration work and sell the rest. I sell it for $20/lb plus
shipping if you want some.

Here's a picture of a restored and coated frame I just did using
the Shasta White:

Yes, I have Tahitian Red as well. Same price as the Shasta White.

Here's a picture of my '79 fresh out of the curing oven:

I bought and used doggers tahitian red on my 79cr250 looks GREAT. The RAL 3020 is as close as you will get without a custom mixed powder.
