I know if you have it welded, it can be powdercoated with no issues. Might look into that. Or maybe hydro graphics? Get it done in a CF pattern?
I was thinking of having one of the welders I work with use the stick approach, bead blast the frame, and then just have it
Just bought one. The price is right IMO. Lets me put the final touches on a project that I didn't want to pour to much money into.
