    Hi all,
    I have a few bits i'm looking to get powder coated (subframe, wishbones, ARB, etc.) and so i'm just looking for some recommendations? Preferably in Derby or close to, but I don't mind travelling further afield.

    Best place would be Derwent Enamellers in Mackworth mate, used them a few times and use them with work.

    Cheers Joe, I'd saw them when searching actually, so it's good to hear they come well recommended :up:

    Did I read you had some issues with a set of wheels before (could be wrong!), if so, take it that wasn't them?

    It was actually them, but a long time ago!
    Used them for a few sets since and had no issues at all since. Probably the best place for quite a distance to be honest.

    Another vote for Derwent Enamellers.

    They've done my wheels a few sets for friends.

    There's a place in Long Eaton called mhp engineering or something along those lines. They did my bmw wheels and they were awesome

    Personally I wouldn't powder coat chassis parts. one pinhole and water is sucked under the coating by capillary action. just sayin'
