Powdercoat job # two is a complete and utter success! And on a side note, the pre-baking process one uses to remove oil also leaves the raw frame an awesome bronze-gold color... Can't wait to put some clear over a raw frame.
Aside from a little bit of electrocution, the first powdercoating job went pretty smoothly. I had a little bit of transparency in some sharp corners on the stays but managed to get total coverage with the "Cadillac" blue. I know how to avoid this thinning next time (flashlight)
Better one, or better two? Top one is straight gauge, bottom is Supertherm. Its .5lbs lighter with a slightly lower BB height. Both are larger 22.6" TT frames suitable for taller riders and/or dirt jump specific riding.(a little more sluggish at the skatepark than a 22" TT)
