I'm considering getting an old frame powder coated.
What I'd like to know is -
In order to get a similar effect to a more traditionally painted bike, would it be possible to overpaint the powder coat on the head tube ?
Or would that part (head tube) have to be masked off during the powder coating process ?
In other words, can 'contrasts' be achieved with powder coating and perhaps using another paint on top ? (or by any method ?)
Is it possible to do lug lining on a powder coated frame ?
Ta for any advice !
I've never had anything done over powdercoat before - and although I am sure there's nothing stopping you, I probably wouldn't.
If its a bike you like I'd let bob Jackson's do the work (although I woudn't always recommend them!). By the time you have messed around getting the paint stripped, had the frame powder coated and then had the threads re-tapped (do not
rely on a powder coater to keep these masked), their price of £75 for a single colour is good value. Obviously, add more for lug lining and an overspray, but this is all stuff that they have listed and priced up, so there won't be any shocks when you get the bill - plus, enamel is much nicer looking than powder.
