Re: question about powder coating.

I've got a little powder-coater and it's fine for small stuff, but wheels are too easy to get thin powder and they don't fit in a regular oven. Yes, the powder just sweeps up unless it's baked on.

Take a look around your place. I found a trailer manufacturer in SLC that powder coats for cheap. They did a big rack/tool box for me in Yamaha blue for $40. They'll do my wheels for $40-$50 each. Not super-high-end work, but damned good, especially for the price.

Bottom line (for me anyway): If you want small stuff like controls, hardware, etc the home powder coater is fine. If you want wheels, go someplace.

Re: question about powder coating.

I know when I was looking into getting my rims powder coated I looked at getting my own set up to do it and I already have 220 in my garage. Decided against it due to various reviews I read about the cheaper guns. I hope you get the results you want and good luck. Find some practice pieces to work with before you do your parts.
