    Default some powdercoat pics

    my valve covers. they have been squared off on the crappy cast edges and smoothed out the excessive cast marks. the right side cover was really nice and the left side looks like it has been rolled in nuts and honey before it was cast.

    Very nice! And without the paint they looked the same as mine did.
    Good luck,

    Would love for my valve covers to look that good. Very nice work. Is it an overly difficult job to take the valve covers off? Man I will ship them to you to work on!

    that could be arranged. you will get them off easily, it what that will lead to that will bring you to your knees or empty your wallet. check out my other powdercoat pics as well. its not a business, just a hobby.

    I gotta ask about your powder coating setup since I got one for Christmas from my wife that I have yet to use. What system are you using? How long have you been doing this? I have lots of things on my vette I want to coat I just have not taken the time learn to do it. Any tips you can pass along to make it easier?

    Thanks,
    Eddie

    hello. i did not answer your question. i have been doing this as a hobby for approx 5 years. i do all kinds of stuff. motorcycle and car stuff mostly. the guns i use are harbour freight gun that i have modified. i have 3 of them. why? i was given one and used it to learn. then i got another on sale for 60.00. why stop there. the eastwood gun is raved about and the caswel is very simillar to the harbour freight, chicago electric. they are all very, very simmilar. if i were to do it from a fresh start it would be a eastwood because of the available attachment parts that you will need to modify the other guns to use these attachments otherwise. also i have found that eastwood is pretty cool. maybe a little more pricy though.you will also find that when buying powedrs the urethane based powders will be resistant to ANYTHING. you will not get this with TGIC,epoxies,polys or hybrids. hope this helps.

    see ya...
