Try Yell.com for stove enamellers local to you or try the usual Argos etc as usually mentioned on here (which would mean posting the frameset away).

I would recommend Hendersons in Edinburgh at Jock's Lodge (just off London Road).

Went in the other day to chat about respraying my steel Kona. They spent some time explaining colour options and the most suitable finish - for steel they felt two pack was best although powder coat is an option.

For decals they prefer you to apply them (maybe Gil_M can sort some out for you) but will apply clear coat after to protect.

Quoted me £80 for the job, no doubt powdercoat is cheaper. Turnaround time is about 3 weeks and they have do lots of bikes and know their stuff.

If you want to pay a bit more go to Shand cycles in Linlithgow and they do decals too

All local companies for you which will save money on postage costs and help local businesses.
