    Recommendation for a powder coater?

    I recently bought a small chrome rack and I’ve decided I want it Matt black. Any recommendations for a London based company ?

    Thanks in advance

    Round off any square edges. These are a weak spot for powder coating.

    Will chrome take a powder coat?

    There is one in Poyle, near LHR.

    And one in Windsor that advertises in Classis Bike, so perhaps more bike savvy

    No idea, but I can’t get the rack I want in Matt black so I bought chrome to either have one made or have it painted.

    Pillion seat is off.

    I have a rack like this:



    And I think it needs to be Matt black.

    The pannier racks will probably be the rounded should type as I may have the read fender shortened slightly.
