    I am looking to get some powder coating done on a current project, but my preferred powder coater (https://www.facebook.com/sicqld/) is extremely busy and is concentrating on Cerakote applications for the foreseeable future.

    Most recently they did a set of MC22 rims for me and use Prismatic Powders (https://www.prismaticpowders.com/australia) which have a fantastic variety of colours and metallic and pearlescent finishes.

    My issue is that although there are plenty of power coaters around in SEQ, many are not suitable for bike parts and are geared toward large industrial scale works where finish and care of machined surfaces etc is not a priority. Does anyone have any experience with or recommendations for good powder coaters in SEQ that are experienced with working on smaller and more detailed projects, and ideally also work with Prismatic Powders?

    I am thinking that Disco Lights looks pretty groovy :thumb_ups:

    Yates Powder Coating charged me $360 or a frame, swing arm, headlight bucket, headlight brackets, center stand and a few brackets.

    Sandblasted, all threads and bearing areas plugged.
    Power coated in Coral black - it was a quality job.

    Thanks for the recommendation. Will keep them in mind in the future.
    Seems not many powdercoaters use prismatic powders, so have decided to use 2k paint and a liberal sprinkling of fairy dust (House of Kolor pearl) in the clearcoat instead.
