Anybody know a good powdercoat place. I have some corners and rockers that were made in AZ. They were just painted(since they don't know what rust is :2thumup: )and they could use a good powdercoat to make it down here. Anybody? :drive:

Tracy,

Whe you get these powdercoated, please post the information on the shop that did it and how they came out. Not of the 3rd party person that will take them there, but of the actual outfit themselves. :unsure:

Tracy, if you can get your hands on HAMMERITE paint I assure you it will NOT allow rust to occur, it even stops rust in its tracks if you just paint it right over the rust. Hard to find but it does come in colors and even in rattle cans however dont buy rattle cans to store as they will PLUG UP. I painted my Kilby skid with it and honest to God it is almost impossible to even SCRATCH it. I found mine at a small paint store. John

Yes, its called HAMMERITE. Some CLAIM to be hammerite but they are not, they are using the term as a finish. Its from ENGLAND. You can do a search under goggle and I think it will come up. john

Thanks again

Eastwood seel a product called Hot Coat.
It is a mini powdercoat system you can use at home. They are pretty inexpensive and the results are great!
I have one!

Sorry about the wrong info.....
Thats the one! Works great! I would recommend getting a cheap used oven and set it up just for powder coating.

I went to the powdercoat place here in Stuart, they gave me an estimate of $50 a corner and $150 for the rockers. Seems kinda high, but I don't know. They said they would have to take the paint off and that price was if the paint came off easy. Any body?
