any powder coater will be able to do it. I've used Astro powder coating

8136 Lankershim Blvd
North Hollywood, CA 91605
(818) 768-6535

They do good work. Aaron Shrier had his bumper done by them too.

Wicks,

Look for CO2 blasting. Basically uses the vaporization of dry ice as the media. Extrememly safe for anything. They use it across the spectrum - from restoration of antique paintings to removing paint on classics.

Eric,

Could you explain this concept a bit more? I am having a hard time "seeing" the abrasive in a gas that I used to air up tires, blow dust off the dash, etc.

Thanks,
Brett Gottdener

Thanks for the feedback guys. Called some powdercoaters who led me to a machinist who knew a guy in an unmarked shop full of DB5s and other fine british toys. Cleaned up nice!

It's dry ice, not CO2 gas. Basically, the melting process itself is the abrasion.
