My powder coater called me, told me he cannot find any flat black powder coat (in a quality suitable for MC frames). Can someone help me track some down? I have my frame in to him, its already sand-blasted, so time is of the essence. Thanks!

Thank you for verifying what I suspected.

He isn't a powder coater, per se'. They have a fabrication shop, they do industrial powder coating in the course of their work. He and his dad (owners) do the MC frames, and car frames on the "side", off the books. I shoulda ran.

He wasn't there when I brought the frame in, but his dad was, and he tried to sell me on the industrial black they use for their normal industrial customers. He probably had hundreds of pounds of the crap (shiny black) in house. I insisted on flat black.

I think he is trying to get me to buy my own color, or is trying to get me to believe I am ordering something special.

Dang, Western Kentucky, eh? Crap, you will be doing my work henceforth, if I have anything else. Im in Northern KY. If only I'd known.

I plan on picking up the frame Saturday, done or not. We'll see what happens.

Why can't ANYTHING be simple?!!!

Thanks again for the information.

BTW- I e-mailed him your response... it'll either motivate him or piss him off. Do I care?
