Powerecoaters?

Looking for options on powdercoaters. One place I was quoted almost $400 for a swing arm and rims. I don't care how good the work is, that's just rape. So what we got?

i'd agree...$400 seems high for 2 wheels and a swing arm single color....I'm only basing this on what I know others have paid for similar work. Good luck. (I assume you'll be doing the prep work...bearings, etc.)

hahahaha, okies, well, sorry, but there is a crapload of labor involved, blasting stripping each rim takes 30-1 hr of cabinet time, then there is the wet sanding time involved, then washing , then prebake time, then cool down, then coating and baking to cure and to do them correctly takes some skill not to mention all the blasting equipment, materials, time, air compressor, oven, baking time and powder etc, all of that takes money to work. I dont remember what color you wanted but if it was a multi layered job, add two of everything I listed above, and if the swingarm is stretched, there is a lot of prep work involved, oven size, prebake time, cool down, powder, bake to cure time, blah blah blah.....end result, powder isnt the cheapest route, but it is by far the best as far as durability.
anyways, just showing you, there definitely is no raping going on. please feel free to shop around, look at their quality of work before you commit and more power to you, have a super day and I wish you luck.

what rims were they that I quoted a gloss black or is it wet black (black chrome) and what is the swingwarm? I want to see where I / you got almost 400? Ill quote them again right here, lets see what we quoted so high, there has to be a reason, I do a gloss black, not wet, but gloss black average rim 80 bucks, Thats a crapload of work I do for 80.... swing arm, stretched probably in the 100-120 range quoted w/o seeing it, depending on its condition. thats close to 300, not 400, so what is it that I quote ya? sorry I dont write every phone call down, my bad.

I'll add if its a fat rear rim, usually 100 basic color, still not close to 400.

also basic harley frame I get 225 for stripping and doing basic single color, average metric frame in the 175 range. I've have done complete bikes, 09 street glide, was in the range of 1,800 for everything, thats a tad higher than 500 for complete bike, , I do bicycle frames and forks single color for bike barn for 225, and thats a bicycle frame. I'm thinking the OP needs to really understand what is involved with powdercoating, its not some dude with a spray can and 10 minutes later its done.

The wheels were r1 wheels...for a Busa.

I know what's involved with powdercoating. I just sold My 12,000 sqft Powdercoat shop up in Chicago before I moved here. Had a full continueous conveyer system, washer/etcher and oven. Ran two 8 hour 12 man shifts, and the work was there to add on a 3rd. So I know the costs involved.

then you should know well enough there was no raping going on.
I dont assembly line items, my shop is a hands on shop where attention to detail takes precedence over quantity out the door.
