Cheers, will update the list. With so many good places about it's worth pointing out the less then perfect imo.

Personally used these, great work for the money.

£65 gets your frame blasted, and coated, £10 more for metallics etc.

Nice finish and very friendly people to deal with.

they DO neon. will blast to metal as a separate service too.

pink, orange, green, yellow for flouro and a mind boggling array of finishes and effects. even crackle-glaze.

spot-on work for small money. hey, that's why I go there(tight yorkshireman).

*edit for LSN coatings work portfolio.

Might have a look at LSN myself next time I'm over that way.


Any more wet paint recommendations?

I used Yorvik Engineering at Wiggington near York for my 91 Marin Eldridge.
Unit E Windmill House Industrial Estate
Sutton Road
Wigginton
York
YO32 2RA

Phone: 01904 768515: 01904 768515

Gave Tim there the small task of re-creating the Zolatone finish and I think he's pulled it off pretty well.
He did a colour match from the chart and gave it a satin finish with some sort of textured beading in the powder.
The expensive bit was the flouro forks stem and bars,they need about 22 base coats of white first and then the flouro on top.
Frame and forks usually cost £50 to powder coat one colour the flouro doubles it.

That reminds me about by frame..

Did we get an answer on the sharp colour change and not the shallow fade?

ah, regarding RM dog-sick yellow?

if so, can't remember the RAL code but they could do a good likeness. even they admitted a stop-start powder coat was difficult or, too much like trial and error for masking off(something like that). at the time i spoke with them they recommended one or the other in powdercoat, then rattle-can the other colour. the yellow is a pale, flat shade so better to let them sort that. the red was fairly common in cherry, or there abouts. :?

they didn't get too techy about why, must be their particular booths or coating methods.

I used a company called CJ Ward in Burton on Trent for my Tazer and they did a good job and didn't charge much at all.
