Excellent idea, I've personally used and recommended to others Solent Powder Finishers in Eastleigh, Southampton. Contact details found here http://www.s-p-f.co.uk/ Average cost of blasting, acid stripping, and powder coating a regular frame and forks with a standard colour is about £40. Finishing standards are amongst the best I've seen.

Keep 'em coming gang. I take it yours are powder coaters hamster?

I thought about putting more up myself (Argos, Bob Jackson etc) but having not used them myself I decided any entry has to come from some one that's had work done at the place in question.

As RCB has done, feel free to post a link to give examples of work you've had done. :D

Cost for Frame - Strip/Blast to bare metal & Powdercoat = £40

This is a brilliant idea, I had a respray done many years ago at Bob Jackson's, 2007 to be exact, and was very pleased with the result. I cannot show you as the bike was stolen :(

In Biggleswade, Beds.

They colour matched a stem and forks to the frame colour. Perfect finish / match. They are not experienced in bike stuff so make sure you give them clear masking instructions.

Triple S do neon and offer a postage service or Orange will paint a bike in any of their neon, not sure if it's only Orange bikes though :wink:
