    Anyone here powder coated a frame in Desert Turquoise?

    I want to restore an old Yeti frame and am wondering if anyone has had success in having their frame re-powder coated in Desert Turquoise.

    How did it turn out? Was the match close? Is there a brand/paint code (powder coat color) that most resembles what Yeti used?

    Look up Spectrum Powderworks in Colorado Springs. At one point I think they were doing all of the Yeti paint. Don't know if they still are, but they should be able to help.

    Email or PM me, if you want. I've done several frames in powdercoat RAL 5018 - Desert Turquoise. It's very close to the original, but not exact. Here's my last one, a 1987 FRO.

    as above. I've also done several frames in RAL5018, although I've never found an identical match for the yeti yellow.
