powder coating a GTO frame

Does anyone know a general idea of what it costs to powder coat a 68 frame?

Not a GTO frame, but VERY similar... I had a '72 Chevy PU frame, control arms, sway bars, etc. Done a while back. The shop I used sandblasted everything, and powdercoated for $1400.

When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

I used sem hot rod black on my frame. I think I was quoted $500-$600 for powder without any blasting. I blasted my own frame, shot it with epoxy and then the hot rod black. Looks great and I can touch it up if I need to.

My local powder coating shop quoted me $650 for my '68 GTO frame, and that was with blasting it too.

Performance Powder Coating in Des Moines will run $300-$400 for an A body frame. Sand blasting not included. You can get that done for $200 (frame only) in this area. Regards, Matt
