• Powder coat

      Powder coated a friends 17" rims this past Saturday. Took a while to get the 5-6 coats of Krylon off.

      Once we got all the paint off it was prep time.


      Then for the coating.

      And will cooking. 400f for 10 minutes after the powder flows out. And you get nice results, if you cleaned thoroughly.


      They look a million times better than they did before. And should resist rock/pebble chipping better than the krylon. Especially coating the face a couple times. Figured I would share .

        Thanks. Done a few valve covers. My intake tube and catch can. Will be doing a lot of coating on my father's Barracuda in the near future.

        Order one of those high temp. coating and tell me how it goes on the manifold? I did it one time but it flaked off after a while. I see there are even higher temp ones but they kind of mucho dinero.

        Rice, I don't know about the high temp coating. I'm sure it wouldn't work out since the oven is only turned up to 400f. You know I send my high temp applications to Swain Tech.

        Can you powder coat cast part? Like the exhaust side of a turbo, or the center section?

        I can powder coat anything that is metal. But if your part will exceed 400f, you might will have a problem. That's the temp its baked at. I'm not going to mislead and tell you differently. Stuff like exhaust manifold/Turbo hot sides/headers, I always sent to Swain Tech to get ceramic coated. But i can coat it if you insist on doing it.
