The color and the gloss is a byproduct of the type of powder you use. It has nothing to do with the process. The process is pretty much always the same.
Clean the parts, sandblasting is a good way to do this or stripping. Pretty much anyway that's acceptable for liquid painting is acceptable for powder coating. You then apply the powder with a special "powder" gun and then bake for 20-30 minutes at 325-350 degrees F.
As milo said if your parts can't take 325-350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes then powder coating is not for those parts.

Another experience has been the powder coating process that involves heat can warp some parts you might think would be a cake walk ...everyone likes to let on like powder coating is a point and click type solution when many times the results are less than expected..
lessons learned ...ask about the heat part...

Some of these may only service commercial accounts and some will do work for the public. Some may not have the capability to handle a frame.
Remember that you have to have all welding' fitting and grinding finished before powercoating. It is also a good idea to have it as clean as possible meaning, no grease or oil. Most power coaters will have a sandblast room or a connection with one.

Need Some Powder Coat
Anyone know of a good powder coat shop around Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana? I need to get my subframe and parts done in a semi-gloss.
