Powder Coating

Over winter I'm thinking about striping one of my bikes down and getting the frame powder coated. I've read about plugging holes etc but one thing I haven't seen mentioned and it keeps crossing my mind is...

... Powder coating I'm guessing, is a bit thicker than most other finishes so is there an issue with refitting the headset and seatpost clamp?

Can anyone recommended a powder coater in the Bolton/Salford/Manchester sort of area?

    We use Crossfield Excalibur in Bury for staircases and handrails etc. Never had a problem and they're pretty reasonable and have a lot of stock colours.

    PM me if you want a contact there.

    Does it not scratch quite easily?
