      Getting slammed with work. I love the oven. Now if I could just get my blaster tuned into the type of finish he needs to give me I'd be doing even better. His blast profile is way rough. I just used about 2 1/2 lbs of powder to shoot 4 18" barrels. Killing me

      That is why I do everything in house(myself)...it's more time consuming..but at least it's done right..

      A cool project for a local Vineyard..Assembled by my local welder,all made with steel. The vine which looks like real vine but steel(apparently you can buy it that way) was all shaped and welded together and I did the coating of the grapes,leaves and mailbox...and got volunteered to help with the install as well...
      Vines were left bare and have already begun to rust leaving a really cool effect. I plan on taking some fresher pics after all the rain we're having while picking up some free wine!

      Mailbox shot in an Illusion Green with clear. Leaves in a Dark green then I airbrushed some black details before clearing. Grapes are shot in a Candy Metallic Purple and clear coated as well. Pics do the mailbox no justice...one of the coolest greens I've worked with yet.


      This pic is all fingerprinted and dusty but you get the point...

      Better pics of the box before install..

      Some the best work I've seen. Keep posting pics when you can, something about looking at powder coated items that puts a smile on my face.

      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.
