yeah powder coating smaller pieces isn't that tough.. make sure its clean, sandblast it, hookit up, spray it, cook it... done... when you get into wheels and frames.. thats another story.

Yea... I blast nearly everything then clean/decrease. I'm using dupont powder now, but I started with the from harbor freight (black matte). The "bike black" from dupont is a little glossy, but the guys wheels we're gonna do bought 5 pounds of it as "payment". and yea, hearing the pieces up first really help the powder stick a bit flatter and more uniform. We'll see how the wheels turn out. Wish me luck!

it aint hard. dont stress. try playing witht hte different colors and test your product. make sure it is strong. throw it on the ground. beat it with a hammer. and my pet peave put a bolt through it and see if it cracks. not on a customers piece obviously but a test piece. and DONT use your home oven. you are not supposed to cook any food in it again after powder.

oh man, the wheels turned out MONEY. i forgot to snap pics last night, but i've gotta touch up ONE spot on one of the wheels tonight, so after it gets baked, i'll snap a few. i think after i find some stripper to get it off should a mess up occur, we're going to give a set of bike wheels a shot.

almost nothing takes that powder coat off that you can go buy at a local store!

AND DONT TRY TO STRIP IT. IT WILL BECOME GEL LIKE AND THE SAND BLASTER WILL DO NO GOOD. IT WILL JUST BOUNCE OFF THE COATING AND NOT STRIP IT. sorrry for all caps

that's the plan. already been proven that it gets baked powder off with a simply spray and wipe (granted, w/o gloves it would do the same to your fingernails, so we'll see how deadly it really is). haha.
