I just sandblasted my frame down to the bare metal and reinforced it with good metal. Now I am lookin to add some beauty to it.I am considering having my frame powdercoated cuz I hear it looks the best. what exactly is involved in the powercoating process? will I need to take the body of the car off in order to have it done? how much does it cost?

yes you will have to take the body off and any thing else you dont want powder coated to save on prep time and everything so it will fit in the oven if your takeing it to a shop... price just depends on what color you want and how long it takes them to prep shit and ect.. a good powder coat place can give you a quote on price for your particular project

*** I have seen frames go from $300 - $3000 depending on the amount of work involved & how nice you want it..... there is alot more prep work involved then yo would think to remove any impurities... I let my parts pre bake at about 300-350degrees for about 30 minutes before hand .....DEPENDING on type of metal & thickness....I then use a good wax & grease remover , tack it down with a tack cloth & let the powder fly...........

i swear by epoxy paint for frames. it turns to a form of plastic when dry and it is undestructable, i've bottomed out many times and it still isnt scratched
