Was gonna say the same but been a bit since I've used them. Might worth the call as they might refer you to someone if they don't. I'll see if I can remember where I got my Harley frame done too.
:D

That's not that bad at all might just take the 36 frame there once all the final welding on it is done then to the powder coaters :D

just out of curiosity, how long does it usually take you to do a frame at a place like this?

an hour or less , I usually have a bunch of parts to do as well .

bring coveralls, hat and plan to get sand every where . try and go on a dry day , sand in the blaster works best when there's no humidity.

done 4-5 truck frames


Weird story about the place , years ago I bought a car from a guy in one of the rental house's on the property . Well a few months later I go to register it and the reggy is no good . So I phone the shop looking for the guy who sold me the car ,guy at the shop goes , oh that guy died .
So I forge the signature and carry on.
Anyways I go back to the place to do another truck frame , get talking to the guys . Turns out the guy who sold me the car hung himself on the block and tackle that you uses to lift the tuck frames.

Kinda creepy .

interesting set up, that looks like silica sand though....

do they supply the sand? helmet? some sort of shield or fresh air?

They supply the sand, ear plugs, and a dust mask and a shitty old welding helmet . I made a face shield that covers my neck so i could see . the lighting sucks in the blasting area

and it is silica sand
