anywhere in dublin that does it for a reasonable price? might be getting my hand on an old viking frame that would need doing.
My friend's having his MTB painted by a lad in Halfords, he's doing it after hours like.
Fancy posting the advice Erik publicly?
alright, just got my hands on said viking. now to start my first fixed build (been on a langster so far). as far as i know it's reynolds 501 and i reckon it looks like about 21". nothing too fancy but it should be fun to build.
Yeah I'll post that up later, don't have it infront of me now
Anyone know where you can get this done, prices, etc?
There's a place on the Naas Rd. just ater the Red Cow, where Heitons is, saw the sign when was driving past the other day...
I'll resurrect this thread. I have a couple of frames I'm looking to fix and, assuming they're good to ride, I'd like to get them painted. It'd be nice to get them powder coated.
I was quoted a price of €180-200 minimum at Tallaght Powder Coating. Looking at discussions around here, that's a mad price to charge and I can't afford that anyway.
Anywhere else/good/cheaper to go?
Dunno, but is that €180-€200 each or together? Because €90-€100 per frame doesn't sound too bad. You'd spend that getting all the materials to do a DIY paint job, I reckon. I'm sure it's cheaper in London, but there's a bigger market for it there, after all.
I might actually ask my LBS if they know anybody, or maybe if we could get somewhere to open themselves up to bikes.
It would actually be good for the Dublin/Ireland FG community to combine purchasing power and agree to use a particular place (and recommend it to others) in exchange for a good deal. I've seen people charging £40 in the UK. €200 sounds way out, even factoring in currency difference and demand. Welcome to rip-off republic.
Have we found a good powdercoaters yet?? How about the guys who did Stevies bike for him?
My Uncle used to own a powdercoating company and €200 sounds way off, I'm sure they're just trying to charge by the oven rather than by the item... Even at €200 though if we had a bunch of stuff we all wanted done in one colour,white or black or something, that wouldn't be too bad between a few of us but there's go to be cheaper out there...
Yeah, c'mon lads!
theres a place in waterford,
40 quid a frame forks and bars (bmx) any colour when me and five mates did it acid dip twenty extra
That's a decent price!! Must be somewhere in Dublin though...
Yep. Well, I'll put it this way, I have a frame or two I'll want to get sanded, painted, etc. in the next month or two. Right now I'm thinking of going for a cream colour (to go with brown leather, chrome, etc.). So if we can find an oven to share and split the cost, brilliant.
ye, i'd throw a frame in too. i couldn't really care less what colour it is either.
I'll need something done in white in a while... maybe we ought to start a list...
I'd love something nice and cream but I don't have a frame to do it on at the moment :(
I think they quoted me 97 yoyo with clearcoat and stripped but cant remember, boom
yeh i'd throw a frame and forks in for white.
Well how about we give it a couple of weeks and see if we can get a deal for frame and forks somewhere... I'll be getting the Bomber Pro done when it arrives and I assume the Deathbike is about to become the Stormtrooperbike?
Sounds good, but I probably wouldn't be ready in a couple of weeks. Depends how things go.
NOOOOO!!! Dont paint the bomber-pro!
She wants it white... I think it will actually be really nice in White with pink decals colour matched to the Pink Frower Kashimax and Black or White grips...
Besides... there are a few chips on it and I'll be getting the decals remade exactly the same but in a different colour ;)
