Spoke to the powdercoaters today and the frame should be ready to collect tomorrow.
I am a bit worried that it's going to look pants; they said that when they stripped the black off there was a load of white paint underneath that was not shifting. Which might explain why it was blasted so heavily.
Having got everything back to bare metal he said twas really rough and one of the worst finishes he'd seen. Gulp!
He thinks that by doing a thin coat, followed by a second coat hit that he will be able to get a suitably good finish, although it is not the way they would usually do it. Fingers crossed. My search for a Tazer could well be resumed if this is knackered.
