Doing some customizeing on my sled with a powdercoat kit I bought last week.


[attachment=50430]



First thing was to powdercoat the bumper with reflective chrome. Looks just like polished aluminium.

Next was to powdercoat the belt gaurd with silver.

Then I powdercoated the hood screens with gloss white and the front springs with silver.

Turned out pretty nice.
Pics. don,t really show up the brightness of the silver too well but ,it shines pretty nice.
Next will be to powdercoat the A- arms mirror black and the tourque arms and the spindles silver.
Have alot more colors to play with.

How much was that kit, and where did you get it from? Worked well?

I want to tear down the front end of my ZR this summer, and would be cool to do my own powdercoat on the a-arms and such.

Looks awesome by the way!

Yes, nice work, it looks really nice, and that front suspension would look really nice if it was reflective chrome.

The kit and colors were a little over $200.00 but you need a sandblaster, air comp., regulator, and an old electric oven to do it. I made my own sandblasting cabinet/ spray booth. About $125.00 invested into the booth plus about 15 hours into makeing it.

Nice job on that. Looks pretty sharp!
Any idea if you can mix those colours together to change the hue or is it a straight outta the jar operation?

You really can,t mix colors but you can use one color for a base coat than use another over that. Haven,t tried that yet but I will be experimenting some more.
