well with the lack of snow, im starting to get into making the sleds look good, and had a few questions, i've got a little air brush kit, and was going to try it out, but i dont have a clue of what type of paint to use in it, any info on airbrushing at all would be great, and about hte powder coating, can i still airbrush on top of the powder coating?, and are carb bodies coatable?, any parts on a sled that cant be powder coated?, any info would be great, thanks!

Not sure on the airbrushing paint. Yes you could airbrush over powder coating. You can powder coat any piece of metal but must have it sandblasted first. I just had my complete suspension blasted and powder coated, turned out pretty good.

How much did that run you Got Mud? I'm considering having my front and rear done next year.

Madcow, Buy the P.C. stripper. Very spendy but works awesome for P.C.ed parts.

It had better snow soon otherwise I will be tearing my sled apart to P.C. some more!!!
