Any one know a good powder coating place to get my valve cover done ? Ive called alot of places and they want a fortune to do it !
GIVE ME A MONTH or 2 i need to get a new oven
i have all the $hit to do it but my oven died on me and im tryin to get another one
valve covers,wheels,nuts bolts small $hit that fit in a oven ill let you know when i have my operation up and running again
there is a guy in mukilteo thats fair if you need it done right away
And I still believe in nothing, Where we can forget the game
Nothing is sacred when no one is saved,Nothing's forever so count your days
Nothing is final and no one is real
Pray for tomorrow and find your empty still
There is a shop in mukilteo that does it and their prices are reasonable. They did all 4 wheel centers and center cap rings for 110 out the door. Even gave me touch-up paint, didn't ask for it, and media blasted everything. Really nice and helpful over there, only took them 5 days to get them done for me and I just walked in. click sig link if you want to see their work.
The name escapes me at the moment but they have 2 huge warehouses across the way from each other as they do massive projects for industrial powder coating. So they can do anything you need them to.
Not trying to take anything away from dave, they do good work too!

I believe this was the place I was referring to - don't remember that being their name when I used them a few years ago though, but the pics of their work are the same as before when I researched them before taking my stuff there.
I would have to locate my receipt and check for sure.
EDIT - think they changed hands and location slightly - still in Muktown though. Used to be called Production Plating - website is down now so it must've switched over to BullDog - which makes sense why they'd still be using the same pics or work done.

I've had a lot of powder coating done at powder fab in Arlington, Wa. If you're doing black, you can score a discount on fridays or "black fridays". It'll save you some $$$ since everything is getting coated black on fridays. Other colors not so much but they claim to beat competitors pricing, I haven't had to take them up on that. I don't actually know anyone personally there, but I was happy with my wheels and valve cover and other misc parts.
I've had Dave do a few things for me and seen a lot of his work, I would take my parts to him any time.
Dave does some great work and is a true master at his craft. He cares about the work he's doing for your car like it was going on his own car.
Debbie and John are good people over at Powder Coating Inc. their son works there and is a true Euro enthusiast. (races a MK2 out at Evergreen speedway) They will probably move on the price a little depending on the prep work necessary. They have a lot of color and finish options available.
Both great options, can't miss with either one!
probably out of your way but I take all my work to Kens powdercoating. Located in puyallup, wa of 200th. They have a 20ft bay and a gajillion colors to choose from with most of them on pre-sprayed samples. By far the cheapest I have come across as well.
THIS IS A DIFFERENT RED I HAD ORIGINALLY
GL on your choice
It must be me but I'm not seeing how $120 to powder coat just one valve cover seems outrages. With all the prep and material it sounds reasonable to me.
I would say if all this sounds to much then High Temp paint might just be what you need to use until you can save up or realize it's going to cost you to do the powder coating.
You also might get a better price( what ever you think that is) if you had more than one piece.
This is evident of the price the person quoted for his valve cover shown above.
He had multiple parts so the shop lowered the cost per piece.

Well there you go good choice. You are correct I don't know you so your point is? All I said is I didn't see the price being all that bad. Could it be done cheaper somewhere else? Sure it can, and you where given some exellent recommondations.
Hell I have friends that get things powder coated for $10- $20 bucks if they bring it in when there is a big order going through.
Not anyone can have that because that is from going and making a commitment and using that place for multiple items over and over again.
So get your panties out of a bunch as I wasn't trying to be mean to you just throwing out a different way to go.
Sometimes no matter what you try it just isn't going to be cheap, plain and simple.
Ok Scotty you know damn well down where your at is a bit cheaper than, rake us over the coals King county. I feel bad for the guy's and gal's trying to make a living having to deal with the B.S taxes here.
That and you can just hop across the border and pay no tax.
Oh and how is your new bike going? got any bikes being parted.
