Nope, to be correct they media-blasted it and said they were very careful. In the beginning it looked totally grey but I guess the 3 coats of clear coat added some tint.

I'm thinking of doing the same for my new project the 1996 Trek 8000 I posted here about

After a lot of sanding and prep work, I've had the frame, forks bars and stem powdercoated. I wanted a tough finish as I intend to use this bike.

I may still topcoat the powdercoat with textured grey paint I have, can't decide as I like the powdercoat finish.

Still a couple of parts to source and get the decals ordered.

Really impressed with that. I think the powder coat finish looks great.

Nice work!
