Looks great. How well does the powder stand up to engine heat, especially on a set of headers?

Well there is a couple of options for headers, high temp pc or ceramic coating. The high temp pc is good up to 1100 degrees F and the ceramic is good to 2000 degrees F. I cant say for sure how well the high temp holds up as I have not had a chance to test it personally. I have done a few sets of both but really havent heard any feedback yet, good or bad, so idk.

Other engine components though we use the normal pc on with no problems at all. Holds up real well to the heat, and oils. Cleans off real well too!!

Alot of people say that! And alot of them still bring stuff up here!!! We do shipping also, but if your items are heavy it can be costly.

I have thought about starting a pickup and delivery option but have not come up with a good enough plan for that yet.....

I would say half of our customers are not from this area. Are name is starting to get out there, and that we do good work at a reasonable price.

We blast everything first!! Our kote does not come off easily!!!!! We blast everything with a coarse abrasive and then prebake to make sure all contaminants and oils are removed from the parts!!!! Proper preperation is crutial, especially with pc!!

You aint kidin!!!!!!! That is just a taste of what he has done!! His wire are is amazing, the detail is just unreal!! He has been at it for about 3 or 4 yrs now and every new piece he does is more amazing then the last. His art starts out as round wire, alot of it is just wire that is used for tying up rebar. The pictures totaly do not do it justice at all!!!! He hoping someday to retire and just do his art for extra $, this yr we are going to try and find the market for his art. It should be interesting, I figure some of the pieces he has done are worth 5g's or more!!! They are that cool and unique!!!!
