We've done a couple sets for customers (not in-house) and they turned out really nice.

Black with rim tape...

Wheels should cost you under $100 for both. Have done auto wheels cost $25 wheel. Just look in yellow pages under powder coat, Vegas should have plenty. Powder coat much more durable than paint

Me too.. I eat powdercoat for breakfast mfr on my corn flakes.. Yum yum heavy metals and poisonous powder - what a good combo.. Powdercoat is ancient technology.. Autophoretic is the way to go... Too bad not too many people do that ****.. There is a place up here in Clinton Twp. that does it..

I have white painted wheels from the factory. What a bytch to keep clean. No one gets that close to the wheels to tell if it's powder or paint, so why not just paint them yourself?

Autophoretic (r) only sticks on steel no aluminum or magnesium. And only choice is matte black. If you want an great primer under powder the 900 series is the stuff (very limited number of applicators, one in New Baltimore, MI). There are others that do some electrical enclosures and Baldor electric motor cases with autodep as primer and powder top coat.

Because powder coating won't chip like paint and it is shiny as f_ck.

Yep... you can hit powdercoat with a hammer and it will just sit there and shine back at you...

Ahh did not know that.. Just remember getting it done on alot of production parts awhile ago so my knowledge is vague.. I just knew at the time it was a replacement for powdercoating and ecoat due to improved qualities and now that I think about it all my parts were steel.. Consider me corrected..

No problem. It is good stuff to bad it only works on steel parts. Chances are I did the stuff for you back then. Was it Applied Tech Industries?

Even with Powder you have to keep in mind that there all types that have the full range of thicknesses, impact and scratch resistance, UV stability, etc. Do your homework and ask what type they are using. Most of the manufactures info is on the web, Dupont, WB Fuller, etc.

Yes it was. My company was Corban Industries out of Lake Orion. We did Production Stampings for the Big 3, etc. I just remember Autophoretic was all the rage, etc. back then. Its just been awhile.. Maybe I should leave this type of info to the experts.. You want to know about Power & Free, Skillet Conveyors, Belt Technologies, Trolleys, Chain, COE, Flat Tap, etc. come to me.. You want to know about coating technologies go to the man - f4ilapper..
