Frame stripping
#1
I have a frame that I'd like to strip the paint from. By all accounts it can sometimes be a bit of a mare of a job to do yourself and it would appear possible to get someone else to do it for similar costs.

I'm going to ring round the local powder coating and alloy wheel re-furbishers to see if they'll do it, but I thought it worth an ask on here to see if anyone can recommend anyone?

Ideally Id get it chemically dipped as it will do a much better job but you could do it yourself with Nitromors and some patience. I suspect most places would do it as part of the process to be sure the surface is clean of any debris etc. There is a powder coaters in Dartford near the football club (Questor I think) called Kent Powder Coating and they did a decent job of a mates steel wheels.

Shot blasting is easiest, but if you do go this route, make sure they plug all the holes/threads, or else your going to have a mare trying to get all the shot blast media back out of it....
