I am going to break down and buy a AME chassis for the Nomad. Was looking to hear thoughts on paint verse powder. Any ideas of cost. I am very much looking forward to the project.
Chevynut,If you want a "smoothed" frame, you should paint it and not powdercoat it imo. I think an AME frame and other aftermarket frames are pretty smooth as built, but stock frames have a lot of waves, wrinkles, and often dents in them. As far as I know, you can't use fillers under powdercoat so what you see is what you get. Also, if you want to match a metallic body color, you can't do that with powder. Mine's going to be painted.
