I'm sure there are cheaper, but I don't usually want a cheap job, I want it done properly, with proper masking and not a frame full of sand...

The difference between powder-coating and what a good enamellers like http://www.bobjacksoncycles.co.uk/frame-resprays/ is;
(quote from web-site)
1. All the frames are lightly burnt off and then shot blasted to remove all rust , grease and other road debris, leaving the frame clinically clean for the next stage
2. A two-pack etching prime and rust inhibitor is then applied
3. On top of stage two a one pack anti-chip primer is applied
4. Then the painting starts with a minimum 2-3 coats applied with a stoving in the oven and a rub down between each coat
5. Then next stage is to apply a single coat of lacquer and again the next stove of the frame in the oven
6. The penultimate step is to apply the transfer and lug or box lining if they are required. (If not we go to stage 7)
7. This is the last stage where the whole frame is given a minimum of two more coats of lacquer to seal in the transfers and lining. Once again, the frame is stoved in the oven and rubbed down between each coat.

Been trying to contact this guy in regard to a couple of frames. I'm not a facebook user, so I'm not having a lot of joy.

Anyone else had experience of this company or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Cheers.

Thanks for the reply. It's Retro Coatings I was trying to get hold of.... as you say, perhaps the old fashioned way and send my pics 2nd Class!! :lol:
- Was wondering if anyone else on here had used them and what was the quality of work like?
Bob Jacksons looks like the complete service but it's complete overkill for what I'm after really.

I could get my frames redone by hand stripping and painting myself, but I've got 3 to do and it's a real PITA ..... especially when you've got young children and little spare time. Perhaps it's a bit of impatience too. Was hoping that someone like Retro coatings would offer the complete service at a reasonable price.

Oh well. Crack on with one I suppose.... but which one. That is the question?

cheers.

What are you getting done? - The pics on the linky show motorcycle stuff etc... is there any pics of bicycle related stuff?

I take it you got hold of them on the good 'ol phone then? - I was trying to email them with pictures to better explain what i was after. Might just send the one frame and see how it pans out rather than taking the leap with all 3 now. :?

Any more out there that have used this company?

cheers.
