I was under the impression that parts are powdercoated straight after sandblast...

Make that all paint and primer, everything, it gets sandblasted and then they powder coat. And if you haven't contacted them most all powdercoaters do the sandblasting themselves and it is usually very cheap. Around here powdercoating costs VERY little more than having someone just sandblast it!

Anything to be powdered MUST be BARE metal. Most of the expense in getting parts coated is the time it takes to remove all the paint with a bead or sand blaster.

This always made me wonder how they do two-tones and overlays. Do they coat, mask, blast again and coat or just mask and coat straight over the previous color?

To do overlays and 2 tones the part is covered first in one color and after it cures ,it is reheated. Then it is either taped off with high heat tape or the other color is sprayed to blend the first color into the next.
