    That sounds a very good price. wonder if they have a dip tank setup there would speed up the process alot and make it cheaper.
    I know i wouldnt want to blast and powdercoat them for 20 a piece.
    Interested to see how they come out, keep us updated.
    Yes i talk to myself, sometimes i need a professional opinion

    I agree Martin. They are a pretty large company doing a lot of industrial stuff, so I think they must have a tank and it will be something they just pop in the oven along with the big stuff.

    Fingers crossed!

    Update on the headlight pods - they are back from the powder coater, and.. wow! What a job. Stripped and coated, and he even bunged/covered all of the threads for 40 for all 4 parts. To say I am pleased is an understatement.

    Can't wait to fit them over the next few days.

    That is a good price and looks like a decent job. Looking forward to seeing them fitted.

    Thanks guys. All fitted last night, didn't take too long at all, which was a pleasant surprise after years of working on an old Lotus...

    I used someone's tip to mark the covers before removing them to that you can put them back in the exact same place, and that worked a treat! Only minor fettling needed.

    I love this little car
