Powdercoating frame: small warning
« on: October 26, 2014, 06:58:51 AM »
If you're ever planning on refinishing your Enfield frame, here's a tip for you:

The welds generally don't look great, and the tubing has lots of little defects. You can't see this as much on the stock frame because there is a metric ton of body filler used to smooth it all out.

Powdercoating obviously removes all this body filler during prep.  So, if you have to refinish, wet paint is probably the way to go.  If I had to re-do it, that's how I'd get it done.

Just leaving a note for posterity.
