I just got an older frame powder coated. The shop that I took it to doesn't specialize in bikes. They mainly do industrial grade powder coating and perhaps a car wheel here and there, so I wouldn't consider them the most knowledgeable people when it comes to handling frames. The frame is lugged steel. Could the heating process influence the frame's integrity?
