Jim,
Please PM me info on how I can see color samples of what you offer.

Also,
I'd like you to do a few bicycle frames for me, but I have a question on prep. I had a guy in fenton do a very expensive aluminum MTB frame and he ruined it (in my opinion). He fawking sandblasted it after assuring me he would use walnut shells. Anyway, it destroyed the surface of the aluminum so bad that even powdercoat couldn't work right on it. (then he couldn't get the paint to work right on it and I think he put two coats on it)

I'm okay with it now, however, I think if it were to happen again - I just might have an aneurysm.

I have a set of the factory chevy aluminum wheels on my 05' 3/4 ton Chevy. The clear coat starting to peel. What would you charge to strip them, powder coat them, lets say dark grey or matte black, and clearcoat them?

I would probably like something like this wheel set:

Trade 17" Black Chevy Rims - Great Lakes 4x4. The largest offroad forum in the Midwest


I would also like the center caps done as well.

17" aluminum wheels done in a single color are currently running $75 each includes prep and clear coat.

If your center caps are plastic, I cannot Powder coat them, they will not hold up to the heat that is involved in the process. If they are metal, all is good, cost will be $10 each.

I did not expect it to be as easy as it looks from watching youtube vids . I find it easier to do than painting though. I did have to modify my spray tip to get a better cloud. I'm interested in seeing your D.I.Y. project completed...

As far is it being easier than painting, that is very dependant on what you are trying to Kote and in what color!!! I'm sure you will find this out if you havent already.

You and hope fully like 25,000 others are waiting for my D.I.Y project...... Its a couple months from completion but we have started drawing out the game plan!
