[DML] Re: Powdercoated DMC frames experience anyone?



Hi

Personally, if i was doing this i would galvanise/powder coat and 
then epoxy coat.
i think the quality of the epoxy is proven as many cars are good 
after 25 years, however i am not sure with galvanising/powder 
coating as i thought they scratch much easier and one any 
damage/scratches rust soon sets in.
the original epoxy is pretty tough stuff and if you 'slip' against 
it with a tool is resists well.

Regards

Steve
