That would totally depend on the vendor you use, and how much (if any) of the prep work you do yourself. I don't know about the Odyssey's, but a lot of the Honda frames have paint that really stands up to sandblasting and takes a lot of work to get ready for paint or powdercoat.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I think I'd go with Ferrari red, if I redid my frames.

Nelly you're FL is just awsome.
How many man hours did it took you to put it all back together ???

I saw one on you tube that has been powder coated in to a blue metallic and candy apple red, that's the way that i'm looking for, for now.

Thanks! Not sure on the hours. I did it little by little in the evenings and on weekends. It took me awhile though. This is my first Ody and the first time I have ever tore into something like this and completely rebuilt it. If i was to do another, I think it would go much faster.
