I would powdercoat it myself, but don't have an oven big enough for the frame.

it can be cured in sections with heat lamps, just need to tent it. I actually cured a guitar neck with a heat gun because I could not get it into my oven. you have to watch for flow out and then expand the melt slowly and keep the heat moving to prevent bubbles. def not for faint of heart. many body shops probably would let you use the oven. however, most do not get that high of a temp. google and you will find shall I say enterprising individuals that do the impossible cures with redneck ingenuity.
