      Lol, thanks. They took a bit of time...it was a pain maskin the lines behind the spokes. While I don't have the biggest hands in the world, it was still hard to squeeze them between...

      Man, wish I had a small coating shop local to me. Only ones around here are apparently big industrial coaters and want to charge me four digits to run ten pieces.

      I have some motorcycle stuff I'd love to get done, but there is no way I'm voluntarily bending over and kissing my ankles for that kind of pounding. I'll paint that isht for that.

      Any of the coaters in this thread read/tried/played with the high temperature rated stuff? Or ceramic coatings?

      Just to clarify, all the photos in this thread are mine. lol....

      I don't know about the others but I do ceramic coating.There is a few pics on here of some exhaust manifolds/headers that I ceramic coated...message me for details...

      If you need some coating done...give me a call. You can ship it up.

      Ohhhh, missed that on my first read-through. It was late, I was tired.

      I will definitely keep you in mind. That bike is all back together again (epoxy paint is a poor second to the coating I wanted ) but I'm about to embark on another one, I'll definitely shoot you a message when I get it apart and my plan figured out.

      is this basically what you use to do all the taping?
      http://www.amazon.com/Powder-Coating...r+coating+tape

      does the powder not stick to the face of the tape?

      I have a large oven that I built myself about 3yrs ago and it is still running strong! It is electric...
      Dimension wise it is large enough to cure about 6 wheels at a time or a whole bunch of small parts...lol
      I have no intentions of going bigger...Leave the big heavy stuff to everyone else!

      That's awesome man. I've thought about building an oven..but that just seems like so much work, and so confusing! And I can't find a decent sized oven for sale that would fit a few wheels in it. They all seem to be either extra small, or enormous and cost thousands. -_-

      Anyways, awesome work! Keep it up!
