Hi, know this has been done before, but sure someone mentioned there was somewhere cheap in Brum for a respray?

Or, on the other hand, who have people used recently and recommend?

I've been recommended Bob Jackson's a few times myself and I am going to send my frame there unless anyone says otherwise. There is a bloke on ebay that powder coats for £35 +postage of £12-15 but not sure how good he is, his feedback seams OK though.

I think the place he uses does mainly motorbikes. need to mask off threads etc yourself; which is hardly a chore but better to know now :)

Alex is in Cheltenham now, works in one of the LBS

I e-mailed him a few weeks back about doing one of my frames but he never replied :(
