This sounds terrible but I just cannot do the color. I figured since I was building the bike I would truly make it mine. The powder coat company is very well known and has a great reputation. They do bikes and when speaking to the guy it sounded like he knew exactly what I was talking about. Im going to call him back, maybe this morning, and make sure he clearly understands.
Do they do Cerakote applications? Back in May I had my custom ti road frame colored with Cerakote. It's a ceramic coating that is allegedly stronger and lighter than paint. Some of the builder's MTB customers have been using it. The colors are matte, but if they are custom blended them with the gloss white you get a sort of pearl finish. The downside is that if you do get a chip you cannot purchase touch up "paint."
The stuff is primarily used to coat firearms, but more and more people have been using it for bikes:
This is the bike my builder built for himself last year. The photo doesn't do it justice:
Paintbytodd also did my frame.
