Painting & Powdercoating the frame questions

Post by IBDRINKEN on Mon May 21, 2012 7:16 pm

I pose this question to everyone since I have no clue. While my bed is off since my frame is getting fixed. I was thinking about painting or powder coating from the cab back. My question is this and I think I already know the answer but just wanted to make sure. Once I strip everything off the rear is it possible to have it powde coated without taking the cab off. If not then I will prob just go ahead and paint it.

I know everything has to come off but is impossible to p/c the rear frame with the cab still on.

yeah it pretty much is i believe the piece gets baked at like 200 degrees plus they wont be able to get good coverage without being able to flip and turn the frame for even coating. i believe most people recommend POR15 when painting frames that would probably be your best bet plus powdercoating is expensive if you dont do it yourself

That's what I was thinking. It's just going to be a pain in the ass to sand down the frame.
