Hi
I am in the process of renovating an old DB Apex.
I am having the frame modded with some CR mounts and have had a price from VB cycles (Dronfield) for a stove enamel paint job.
But I have heard powdercoating is more resilient.
After mailing the local powdercoaters I either get no response or they do not specialise in MTB work (industrial).

So does anyone know of decent firm in the SY area?
Also have a few bits I need anodizing blue so same again for that?

Thanks in advance.

Do the parts need stripping before hand or just anodizing?

They are polished aluminium so just the usual pre-treatment gubbins.

Any news?
Also what about powdercoaters in SY?
Surely someone has some experience?
Got 2 frames now waiting for a bit of loving :(
