Not really - there are huge differences in quality of coating jobs. The ones that leave your rims so shiny that they look wet cost around $100 per wheel. Industrial coat jobs like you get for $50-75 per wheel don't shine much - if at all - and aren't very thick.Northwind said:You guys got hosed
You're the lucky one then! I do rims and parts for bikes and it just isn't worth doing for less than $100 ro so. Materials and blasting cost around $50 per rim. Takes about three hours to do them right so the profit is only about $15 per hour.Northwind said:Y'all should move to the UK! This is a metallic finish applied by a guy who deals only with bike and car parts, and it's lovely.
