Go to Harbor Freight and buy a powdercoat kit and learn to do it yourself....results may vary based on experience and willingness to learn...but its possible.

Thatís how I started with powder coating Jeep parts. Just donít use the house oven to cook the Powder coating, the fumes are a little toxic.

You will also need a vinyl cutting machine, and keep the powder away from heat and humidity as it shortens the shelf life dramatically. Also most importantly you need a shit load of patience..... I canít count how many times I have screwed up, and sometimes shit happens for no other reason, then it just wants to fuck with ya.

Yes...I picked up a craigslist oven in Albuquerque and started doing car parts when I rebuilt the front end of my Buick. Its amazing...people will even pay you to do it It's quite exciting when you get too close and static ignites the powder

You do nice work though...far better than anything I've attempted yet.

To those that do powdercoat, is $175 fair for a pair of motorcycle wheels blasted and coated? That's with me delacing and relacing them myself (paying the husqvarna shop to do it..)

I bought a level up from Harbor Freight. The guy I was using started a $75 minimum, so I wanted to do some small stuff. Its addicting.. here's my gun, its a Redline. I want to get a bigger oven and do more.



Stripped a pulley and coated:



Baked in my $25 craigslist oven:



And the finished pulley:
