GTA: Any shop recommendation for powder coating + sand/bead blasting?

as topic..

I am currently rebuilding a '73 Raleigh Superbe but the rust is too much and got into the paint already. The traditional OA bath can't do much here.

I am looking for a good shop around the GTA area. How much does it cost usually? I am hoping to send in the frame, fork, both f/r fenders, and the chain guard.

Thanks

The only place that I know is velocolour. It looks like they do lovely work, but at a price.

There are places that do plain old powdercoating who might be less expensive - check the yellow pages. Another possibility would be to go to a few autobody shops and ask how much it would cost to have it sprayed, or go low buck with a bunch of rattle cans.

Autobody shops know how to paint autos.

Velocolour knows how to paint bikes.

Why "fool around"?

Velocolour? Well, only if you wanna pay 350+ for frame and fork. I don't know about you guys, but I think that's a bit steep! I bought a brand new touring frame from Urbane Cycle for that. I recommend powder coating instead, if you just wanna get a good no-fuss and economic paint job done. There are a few around and a full sandblast/prep/paint can be had for under $100. Just don't use Amara powder coating - they didn't stick with their quoted prices (always get a written quote!!), and left some old paint in the gun, so now I have a black-and-red flecked bike! Still, it only cost me $60, and it looks pretty cool.

Velocolour is for paint jobs and nice ones at that. For sandblasting and powdercoating go to Byers Bush in Mississauga. Remove all parts from frame and fork (including BB and headset). Call ahead as their hours are limited. It's about $150 depending on what colour you choose, might be more with the fenders and chainguard.
