    Ive had mine done at wilkinsons powder coating mate.

    £75 for blasting, powder coating, sticker applicaton and laquering

    Not had it back yet but their previous work on my motorbike stuff has been top notch

    Unless you enjoy massive ballaches and crappy workmanship, AVOID MARIO VAZ at all costs. The twunt left a headset cup in my frame, then managed to get a load of paint inside the headtube and over said cup thus effectively gluing it in place. Very nearly ruined the frame. Obv he didn't give a crap.

    I painted my own frame. got a can of primer, two cans of colour from halfords. Painted the frame, let it dry for a few days then dropped it round to a car bodyshop. They laquered and baked it while doing something else. Then stickers from ebay.

    total cost £50 ish. But I had the paint anyway.

    Nice job on the Boardman.

    Sorry to hijack the thread but I'm after getting my Bottecchia frame restored only it has a rubbery finish to it, anyone know of a frame specialist that could paint and finish in that way?
