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.
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.
Some silver base,masking,airbrushing candy red and clear. Just something different.
Some BMW work---
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?
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.
Some more random stuff.....
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...
