Does anybody have any experience getting their Calipers powdercoated?
I got a quote for $75, not including sandblasting. It seems a bit steep to me to basically bake something.

Would I have to bead bleast the calipers before powder coating (they are not new)

Thanks

probably, you need to get ALL the crap off of them before you paint for it to look anywhere near decent.
75$ for 4 calipers? It's not that bad. How much is the sandblasting?

It's $75 for 2 calipers - I didn't get a price on blasting, but I planned to do it myself.

Thanks
