    Ive talked to a few people about that place in Ozone park. The put adds on craigslist and after a few people get pissed off with them for destroying/"missplacing" their frame they stop posting for a while.

    Id stay away from that place.

    if you find one, let me know so I can get my glow in the dark powder coat job done

    someone complained quite vocally on craigslist about that place. he claimed they took his frame, didn't contact him when they said they would, and were unreachable for days or weeks or some such.

    Eddie - are you doing that with the Pista? There are "issues" you might want to be aware of:

    Sandblasting/Powdercoating

    a paint job question???!!!

    some places offer wallnut shell blasting insted of sandblasting. its safer and shouldnt damage the chrome.

    I saw that on one of those car reality shows on TLC..

    my friend had his '05 pista powdercoated black at
    PATSON CORP
    85 meadow st, bushwick
    718-497-7272 ask for richard.

    took about 2 weeks and i think it was a little over $100 for the frame and fork.
    I think they blasted the chrome off with something. don't know what.

    I think your friend asked me for directions? Guy came out of the subway with a pista frame and fork in hand. I gave him a "what's up" as I passed him and then he asked me which way Metro was. Small cycling world.
    Hey Guys! Wait up.

    Ok. I just called the place in Brooklyn and they said they the min. was $150.00. Its a bit pricy but if its good (im going to go take a look at some of the work they have done) Im ok with paying it.

    They would also look into getting the glo powder so when the season is over I could get it done

    thanks yo. lot of conflicting info here. i understood that it was possible to powdercoat but not paint onto chrome. does anybody have a DEFINITIVE answer to that one? i understand it will be necessary to strip the clearcoat (why do they clearcoat chrome anyway?), but was hoping not to have to strip the chrome because i was planning to leave the stays chrome and powdercoat the rest of the frame. why? figured it would look sexy that way and because y'all are such *****es about bianchi hipstas that you made me feel somewhat strange about the perfectly good bike i paid less than $400 for

    spoke to him. said yes you can powdercoat over chrome if the chrome is in good shape but that you can't mask off specific areas (stays)because it leaves ugly marks (don't know why). it costs $60

    $60's a GREAT price. Does that include bead blasting / prep of any kind, or do you need to show up with the surfaces totally clean?

    i imagine that does not include prep. he said they can coat to good chrome for $60, which i assume means you have to make it good, ie get rid of any clearcoat/crap
