    Not sure where to put this.

    I've been thinking of getting a powder coating set up and found a used one that I may look at. It comes with everything needed to get started. The over is big enough to fit a 17-18inch wheel. There's been a high demand for it and am wondering if it's worth getting into.

    Man on my car I would have poweder coated everything. But not much on my truck except for the rims. I think for the right price it would be a great investment for you to have at home if you have the space.

    I have been wanting to get the harbor freight set up, cheap as hell. Make sure what ever you powder coat you have to cure in the oven. That is the only thing stopping me.(wife)

    Its not reccomended to cure PC in your home use oven. Best bet is to find a used oven in the classifieds

    My dad did it years ago, he picked up an old oven and put it in his shop. It worked pretty well for smaller parts, you would need a big oven for wheels.

    New prices are't too bad. I'm going to do some more research on getting started and go that route.

    Thanks for the links.
