      Thanks--the taping is a little rough requires a steady hand and lots of patience...as well as a sharp blade...haha
      I have noticed a lot of people have been getting into powder coating...but I think it's just like anything else...most won't do it forever.
      I myself have been coating for about 4yrs now and the first 2yrs I was just doing it for my own stuff and for a few friends..I came from 15yrs as a dealer technician and after an injury I decided it was time to do something else.
      I always try to do something different and somewhat unique as compared to most of your run of the mill "industrial coaters" with the big shops that shoot and bake...

      Yeah they were a little bit of a nightmare--the orange and grey ones are A3 wheels they were harder to mask than the Audi pie plates in the first pics...
      I practice alot on random stuff though---The A3 wheels are mine I got at a junkyard--actually finishing up the 4th one today and they will go on my Passat wagon--all (4) are different colors and patterns--best way to promote your work--drive around with (4) different colored wheels...hahaha
      I have a ton of other pics to post up but Photobucket isn't cooperating today...

      That garble made ZERO sense.......but maybe this will answer it

      Yes you can do a chrome powder, not it does not look like chrome after you clear coat it which SHOULD be done. Yes you can do candy gold over the chrome from what I've heard it isn't an easy powder to get to come out.

      deeeGLI may be able to get it to work but even some of the seasoned coaters on the forum tell me how much of a pain it is

      Thanks for the help HARLEQUIN...

      Basically like Harlequin said--chrome powder has nowhere near the same look as REAL chrome. If you powder coated chrome then the candy gold it isn't gonna look the same.
      The best option for the real GOLD look using powder coating is to powder coat a Translucent(clear)Gold over a really good polished or chromed piece.Then you get a more true gold effect. The catch to this is Translucent colors especially golds are a little bit of a pain--the coverage has to be near perfect or else the color doesn't look right and/or it doesn't flow out right when cured..If this is something you're really interested in--I see you're from Montreal? I know a couple custom coaters in Canada...would just have to see exactly where they are located. In my opinion you won't get any run of the mill industrial shop to even bother with it..
      The biggest catch to getting it right is the quality of the powder,type of gun being used and the voltage&current settings when shooting the part....

      Thanks again Harlequin---I enjoy your company hahahaha....

      EXAMPLE OF TRANSLUCENT GOLD OVER REAL CHROME--
      --see how the very tops of the bolts have a "picture frame" kinda of look...that is an example of just a little too much powder...bolts are almost too small to get this effect right....

      This is the same gold powder shot over a Silver powder--you can see the metal flake underneath.

      can you remove previous powdercoating and do it again? I might change my mind on the color!

      Yeah, 2 ways.

      Chemical stripper, or if you have a good enough blasting setup.....

      unless you were being sarcastic and I missed it lol

      Yes sir---I had a clue with the screen name---

      And yes you can strip powder coating and recoat--basically start over. Chemically is the best route...blasting is time consuming.

      We spoke once or twice on one of the coating forums--I think PBTP? I keep meaning to meet you personally at Vag Fair but haven't been able to make it the last year or two.....maybe in 2012?

      One of a set of FLIKS I got cheap that were pretty messed up....Coated in a Gunmetal with Silver flake and clear coated. Origional center caps were crap so I made some new ones and color matched.

      OZ superleggera in a Yellow/Green and Cleared

      SEM 1.8T manifold in a textured silver with black lettering.

      Bunch of AUDI rear suspension parts in Black Chrome color--with clear.

      I get my fair share of "bargain hunters"--and I do a lot of regular stuff as well--I guess you take what you can get--haha. I love doing the more complex one-off stuff but the economy isn't helping that blow up to where I can turn away regular coating work.
      As far as the gun I use--I currently have a Wagner PrimaSprint--I would call it my most prized possession for work. Well worth every penny I paid for it--
      When I started coating for just myself I used an Eastwood gun then moved up to an HS02...then the Waggy.
      I think I've seen your screen name on P365 forums? The other guys in here:Harlequin and Tomespo are on there too..I think maybe JDIEM as well he's down in south PA.

      Agreed, I'm the same way but you gotta take what will pay the bills sometimes! Very nice, I would love to get something like that though I can't justify the costs at the moment. Still on an ES01 which works great for what I need it for so far. Yupp, just joined on p365 finally the other day, took me quite a while to jump on board there. Love the forum so far, very active compared to the EW forum.
