These days, fancy paint jobs are all the rage. That’s cool, but it’s not how we roll here at Soulcraft. We like humble, and to that end our paint jobs are of the highest quality but not high on the flash factor. We choose powder coating because it is highly durable and more environmentally friendly than “wet”, or solvent based paints. Not only that, but rather than ship our frames halfway across the country and back just to get painted, we use a local powder coater so our money stays local. They use a 3 stage prep process which starts with media blasting, then a phosphate conversion coating, and finally a sealing rinse, which all provide much better paint adherence. Then a base color is applied which is followed by a clear coat. The end result is a beautiful paint job that will give you many years of service. Our current color palette is running at 20, which we think should be enough for most people. Plus we’re offering matte/flat clear topcoats now which are super cool. The decals on our frames are top mount, meaning they are applied after paint with no clear coat over them. By using top quality decals, a clear coat is simply not needed. If you need replacement decals for your Soulcraft, just send us an e-mail.
