RE: [DML] powdercoating



Hmmm, an entire frame prepped an coated will cost a good few bucks.  There 
is a local powdercoater I used here and it cost about $100 or so to do a 
valve cover set and his work honestly wasn't that good.

The price of PC'ing is going to vary depending on the size of the part and I 
doubt an entire frame will fit into one of their prepping tanks so it will 
definitely have to be done by hand.  Spraying the coating is alot like 
paitning with a spray gun and then it gets baked as you know.  I can't see 
it costing over a couple grand but then remember the quote that you get what 
you pay for.  Shell out a decent amount of money and you'll get a great 
job...get it done cheap you'll get a cheap job.  Unless you have a hookup.  
:)

The DeLorean, in my opinion, is definitely worth the money to have it done 
right.
