Well :lol: , sort of. That's my starting point too, but I've got no idea which ones are any good.

I have a quote from Camcoat, but I don't know if the price is good (£84 to blast & powdercoat) or whether they are any good.

Anybody used them?

Looking at their website I'd say you can't really go wrong if McLaren are using them...£84 seems reasonable if they're going to do a top class job. I had a frame powder coated and laquered at a local shed and it cost £35 without the blasting...so I'd say go for it.
(And post the results here :D )

Cool. I must check that includes a gloss finish.

I guess decals can be applied at home on top of lacquer? I'm hoping to get my 1999 Kona Caldera back to a fairly stock look.

As long as they're laminated decals then yes- otherwise they go under the clearcoat.

Gil_M on here is your man for those.
