if your frame is powder coated from factory you can just get it recoated without acid baths
clean it up no stickers scuff up the surface with a scouring pad green 3m type
bung in oven rebake then coat with powder and bung back in and rebake

doesn't the heat from baking the paint screw with the heat treatment of the aluminium?

Cheers for that info, that's really helpful!
So no sand-blasting required? :0

Also, I'm guessing it would be necessary to remove my cartridge bearings in the frame before getting it powder-coated? Or is it ok to cover it up with a piece of metal?
