Here's some pictures after cleaning the worst off with the sander, a bit more to do before I sand blast it, looking better I think :-

Looking good. How did you get the worst off ? did you try using a wire cup on a drill ? And do you sand blast it yourself , if so how ? Like the sanding booth too  :)

Used a drill with a wire cup and a detail sander, I will sand blast it at work myself this week and update pictures, many thanks.

Did'nt get round to taking any picture's of the frame after sand blasting it because I forgot to take my camera into work, anyway had a call from the ironwork's today to say the frame is now powder coated, will go and pick it up next week and hopefully see a big difference.

Brilliant Job on that.

Would your man be able to spray a Chopper frame for me, not been able to find anyone local who was willing to do it.

Matching the paint to the exact colour is also a problem.

If he can't powder coat it (which I think he could as he has loads of colour matching cards) I could always get it sprayed in a friend's spray shop.
