      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.

      That is the Bonded black chrome...with clear vision.
      I don't recall if it's P365 or NIC's version.

      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.

      This guy talked my ear off about doing all his coating for his BMW parts he resells and I haven't gotten a single piece from him. He told me he could keep me busy for awhile with all the stuff he has.....Still waiting for that haha

      I cannot tell you how many calls and emails I get with the promises of endless work! Then never hear from them again--lmao. Most I think are looking for a deal on one job and think they'll get the super discount if they promise you the world...but I don't bend...this shop gave me like 30pieces on the first trip so obviously I worked a deal with them--then when I brought the stuff back he paid me right away and said--"I can't let you leave empty handed." and dug up another pile of parts...that's my idea of a great customer...
      With the economy in the toilet there are a lot of tire kickers out there..as I saw a statement on the coating forums..and you'll understand it..
      "They want champagne on a beer budget!" hahaha..

      yeah trust me i get it a lot

      them: Can you do two tone jobs
      me: yeah but you probably wont want to spend that much.
      them: how much for some 17s face 1 color recesses another
      Me: $450+ depending on the colors/wheel
      them: How much in a single color?
      me: $300
      them: ok ill just do them all 1 color


      i have 1 guy trying to talk me down on my price to coat his wheels. i told him the price, he told me XXX will do it for XXX. i said ok, take em there, i know the quality of my work and its worth XXX.

      he is still trying to talk me into doing them for less because he doesnt want to drive to XXX and its more convenient to come here. not my problem.

      Thanks---
      Gun is top of the line--- WAGNER Prima Sprint
      When I started coating(for myself) I was using an Eastwood Hobby gun,then moved up a notch to a better gun--then the WAGNER...Best investment I ever made!

      Investment indeed!

      Hopefully I get there soon. First I need a big oven, sand blasting cabinet is almost complete.

      What's your source for powder?

      Some two tone wheels...wish I had a before pic of these they were pretty messed up..tires were reverse mounted on machine so the lips were all gouged. Curb damage that would make you cringe...lol some grinding,a little welding,more grinding and a little filler with primer before coating the whole wheel with silver,masked lips then coated in gold and finally coated clear on whole wheel...



      Pic of one of the "Awareness wheels" some might have seen these on an E30 BMW at the Harrisburg Pa Toys for Tots drive...
