a long long time since ive done a good write up on anything. but im sure heres a write up you all will like.
well i have 5 cragar quick trick one wheels they were chrome but i dont like the chrome finish on them so i decided to go with black..... this is where powder coating came in. did my research and found out its honsestly not that hard.
it takes a little money to get a setup going but nothing any weekend warrior cant accomplish.
so in total this project cost me under two hundred dollars outside of the wheels.
when coating there are toxins releasd that arent to good for you to be breathing in. so i had to run and make my own extension chord an extra thirty feet out of our second kitchen in our house. this was the most scary part. dealing with 240 volts but is fine if you use the right items and dont criss cross the circuit.
the oven $50
the gun $70
sand blaster $30
extra 6 guage wire (90ft) $45
elbow grease and the nuts to get the job done.....priceless
got all my wheels.... sand blasted them (takes a long time with a small air compressor)
then it was off to powder coat.
here are the pictures i have so far.....i will add more asap. the first wheel is in the oven now.
