Default Hydrographics

Has anyone used this process? It looks pretty sweet. I'm waiting on a quote for the wheels on my bike.

They've been hydrodipping guns for a while now. It's very cool stuff. Just not as durable as Cerakote or even Duracoat.

Camo Creek Hydrographics in Brighton. My buddy showed me the process last night when he saw the company at outdoorama.

I've never looked into any of it. I know wrapping is popular right now but I absolutely hate wrapping, it always looks like hell. From what I was told Camo Creek puts a clear coat on top of the graphic so I'd imagine it's pretty durable.

Durability would be one of my only concerns. Watch out for those wheel weights, curbs, or rocks!

A quality clear coat is pretty durable though right?

Sure, against the elements and scratching. I might not mind something like this for a summer vehicle. It all comes down to cost for me, however.

some quick googling put it at $75 per autmotive wheel, not sure what it'd do to a motorcycle wheel.
