Excellent. Thanks. I’m interested to find out. It looks like he has a pretty large set up for doing blasting as well. That would be nice for large panels. The only game in town, was that guy out in Pearl. Though his work was nice, he was extremely expensive, and the media he used was very difficult to work with as far as Paint goes. Lots of prep work had to be done to get the panels neutralized so the paint would properly adhere.

Yikes.

That’s really high. Robin Church was charging about 1/4 of that for that size. To put things in perspective, i paid $300 for an entire 40 series frame.

Did that price include blasting?

Powder coating is an in-demand business right now. As such they are charging in -demand prices. And they absolutely should. It’s a for profit business after all.

I paid $350 to get my Dissent rear bumper PC’d, and gave the guy an extra $40 because he did a great job and i know I’ll never have to worry about it again.

Same thing here. Quality no-hassle work.

Looks great Nolen.

Of course they blasted the parts.

The guy in West Jackson was a hack. Everything I got from him has faded or was incomplete.

this is a pro level facility. You get what you pay for.

Clearly not the place to go if price is the driving factor. It’s like choosing a burger between McDonalds and Lou’s.

One is a commodity made by some clowns (pun intended) going through the motions, and the other handcrafted by artisans with premium ingredients in a setting designed to attract customers who expect premium service.

I never had any bad experiences with the people on industrial Drive. It was super unfortunate when they went out of business.

What was the price breakdown? How much did you actually pay for the powder coating? Did he charge for a full rack, half rack, etc.?
