This is a frame off restoration. Frame is bare now. Going to get it sandblasted next week and coat with epoxy primer. Debating if I should powder coat. Will check on cost next week. Sandblasting will cost $140 - $160. Taking it to Blast Tech in Denver...recommended by RaceKraft Designs.

Is this a driver or racer? Personally I'm not a fan of powder coating - For a classic, not so much of an issue. For my TR4, I just went with rustoleum since I'll be reworking the front A-arm mounts to get some camber into it and tying in the cage.

Oh yeah - where's the pics? Don't think your link is working right.

Figured out how to include the image. This will be a street car. I have a TR4 racer that I run on the local tracks and really want a car I can drive more often. The motor will be a bit hotter than stock, but dependable.

No, the rustoleum spray bombs suck. I use the cans, heavy rust primer and a top coat or two. You can thin them down and shoot or they actually flow/level out pretty well with a brush or roller. - it's a little dusty, but I think things are coming out decent
