my forks are awaiting the candy clear coat and the rim is waiting on coat #2
MVC 120S
the forks have been through the oven at 4 different times through the different layering stages of the powdercoat flames.

I should be able to fire the big oven up sunday or so. Its a 3'x3'x6' interior.
I have a very nice rim here for a sport bike from another forum member thats awaiting chemical stripping and a liquid smooth wet black. It also is a canidate for the new oven and also Juices frame is inline. then maybe my frame if I have time.
you would be amazed at the colors they make now, even "illusions" that change color with the angle viewed.

everybodys price depends on how nasty the parts are. The easier clean-up and less work I have to do, the cheaper the cost.
Lemme know what kind of parts you are talking about, will they fit in a blast box or will they need chemical stripping?
Juice's bike is one of those that make ya charge big money for. His was about 4-5 layers of hardened paint and a lot of rust.
The rims have taken over 1 hour each of work just to clean, the frame still isnt finished stripping and the swingarm is close.
If I was to charge for my labor in his he would have to rob a bank. His stuff taught me to price wiser. So, real world, price depends on condition and amount of I gotta do to get ready to prep and shoot.

you need to look at them in person, the "wet" colors look like exactly that, still wet.
I have some wicked translucent metallic colors in now shoot a base of bright chrome or metallic silver, or bright white, bake to full cure, then fog on a translucent color over the bright base, makes it come alive and have depth.
The pearlescent top coat clears will add some action to the paint when the sunlight hits it.
there is some awesome stuff out now for PC work.
In a couple days, I will take a photo of my work area, spray booth and oven area, kinda notice , in all the photos, there are no pictures of that area till its done I am addressing this hobby as a business and spending the money to do it right and get the right product results.
