Would mind sharing how you did the paint job - I need to strip and paint my JW2 !

I had it blasted and powder coated which only cost £30!


WOW was that mates rates or what? and what type of business was it please, probably too far away from me in North Wiltshire to take too the place you used - but I have been getting stupid quotes 10 to 20X that much!

Just one of the nearest powder coating places to me he quoted £35 and just said £30! I’m working on making a good connection by bribing him with pies from my work haha.
Yeah some places charge a lot! I made sure the bits that didn’t need paint on were coverd and it came out well :)

Finally finished it! I had to go 1x with a nw ring as fo some reason both my front mech’s wouldn’t fit! Maybe the powder coat was too thick.
I’m happy with how it’s turned out and I have decided to sell it to make way for my next project.
