thought i'd post this for anyone interested in doing their own powder coating, feel free to post your methods here.
while none of this is actually home made, this is my adaption of common items for use in powder coating.
i bought the eastwood powder coat gun and some of their powder to try out on my wheels, pulleys, brackets and misc.
this is powder coat central
junk 30'' oven, top burners removed and an old tv box for my spray booth.
because i eliminated the top burners, the oven runs on a 20 amp, 220v circuit
i was working on my rearend at the time so i tried it out on my backing plates and diff cover.
the stock yellow was a little too pastel so i added a touch of red to the mix and it came out perfect.
the backing plates are still yellow pastel, the wheel is the right color yellow.
then i tried my wheels. new steelies from wheels vintiques. 7x15 fronts and 8x15 rears.
they had some cosmoline for rust prevention on them, so i degreased first, then sand blasted with eastwoods blast-in-a-bucket gun.
i baked the wheels to gas off any left over cosmo and degreased another round.
