I would like to get my fixed gear beater painted on the cheap. Through friends of mine I can either get the frame sprayed by an auto bodyshop or powdercoated by a fence manufacturer, neither of whom "do bikes". Both will do it "for a case of beer", but obviously wont guarantee the quality. I can also get it sandblasted first either way so that will not be an issue
Which would be the better option? I'm more concerned with durability than looks.
