I should clarify, by a little high I meant $200 but allot of people have been paying $175 or less. I understand the prep, I used to paint motorcycles and was a PPG certified tech as was my shop. Like I said I have no problem paying a little more if the job is done right.
It sounds like black hawk custom does it right as he said they blast everything per cerakote specs. Just wanted to make sure they do the rest of the job right and get full coverage in the areas especially on the BAR rail that will be difficult to get to.
