Re: Re-painting and re-finishing old javelins - Advice needed!

if they were mine I would have them powder coated. if you are going to put new handles on them then take the old handles off. Powder coating will require them to be heated to 420 degrees, but the paint job will last for ever. look around there are some very reasonable places.
