good job on the rims!
and i am glad i got mine done before i saw this or i would be buying an oven. hey, wait. there are alot of things i could powder coat.
No idea on the final coating thickness. I apply the powder as thick as I can get it before baking. If you get it too thick, it will chunk off if there is not enough of a static bond between the metal (-) and powder (+).
If you are going to do the rims, I would suggest getting about 2-lbs of powder, just to be safe. I bought 5-lbs of Mirror Black, since I will be doing more rims after these are done.
You can pick up a used electric oven on Craigslist ... I got mine for $20.
