Scott, I decided to get it powder coated. Get it back tomorrow hopefully!

Powder Tech off Sullivan.

Got a quote from Powder Tech for $45-$65. Everywhere else was $80-$100. Thought it was a great price and dropped it off. Had to return to Powder Tech to remove the springs from the frame and talked with the owner who informed me that it was going to be $150 for the frame and all springs Mad
I told him that I would just paint it. After some negotiating we settled on $100. Satin Black. Well see how it turns out.

I'll post some pics

I thought that seemed pretty cheap on your first quote, good that they could match the other place though! Can't wait to see how it turned out.

Also did a rebuild on a friends Kadrons. Car was running like crap. He said they were new carbs. I thought "new" Kadrons? This is what I found. Before pics, and after pics. Turned out nice!







And the end result!!! Very Happy
