Stripped the bike down at the start of the year in preparation for powdercoat and rebuild. Paint was looking very tired after 3 years of being my go to bike. Finally put it in in March - went with baby blue, same colour as the singlespeed version of the Mary:
I used ESP in Glasgow, pretty good experience. They've got a wee 'showroom' (actually a container with sample parts powdercoated in the colours that they do). Guy I spoke to was very good, made a point of making sure I saw the sample in broad daylight, so I knew exactly what I was getting. Threads, BB and headtube seemed to have been masked very well, even the tiny holes for the rear-hanger look clear! According to a recent thread on Singletrack, they're used by some of the bike shops in Glasgow when they want a frame powdercoated.
Cost me £60 all in, and that included a seatpost (aye, I know, it might not fit any more, but since it never fit properly when it was shimmed, maybe it will now). Took about a week to do, but I wasn't in a rush for it. When I took it in in a Tuesday, he reckoned he'd have had it done on the Friday.
Fast forward to May - Had day off work, so popped down to Halfords for a can of Ford Ivory White, and got busy with the masking tape:
Reasonably happy with the end result (passes the 10 foot test) and can now start building it up again...
