    Well I recently got into powder coating, and wanted to see if anyone was interested in letting me do some parts for them for pretty cheap. I am using a standard 30'' oven for now so whatever you can fit in your oven at home I can powdercoat.

    I'm really interested in doing some Valve Covers. I have been doing lots of powder coating on motorcycle pegs/levers/bolts with great results. Ill post some before/after pics when I finish uploading them.

    Since I'm just starting out I only have basic colors. Mirror Black(Super high gloss), Flat Black, Chrome, Sparkle Sliver, White, Red, Yellow, Candy Blue and Candy Pink. Although I can get pretty much any color you want.

    I don't claim to be a professional but my prices will reflect that lol. I'm sure my price will be the lowest you find, and I haven't had one complaint from any people on the work I have done. I wouldn't charge someone for anything I wouldn't want.

    I can do up to 16" rims at the moment but those have a bit of a longer turn around time as i have to do them one at a time.

    Thanks everyone!

    I'd like to get a few things Power-Coated. Question for you. I have a Aluminum Bike Frame I'd like to powder coat. I know you can't fit it inside your oven. Can that be powder coated in general?

    I'm going to see what I'd like powder coated.

    Most definitely it can be powder coated. Let me know what you need and I'll let you know prices.

    Thanks

    Here are some pictures of some of the stuff we've done lately:

    Here are some 16" Tacoma Rims

    Here are a few valve covers in different colors:

    (yes that IS Powder coating, NOT chrome)

    (We did the Candy Green, not the chrome)

    There are more things we've done but this is just a sample of a few different colors we have.

    I'm interested in getting all 4 wheels powdercoated....However, i painted them before...Would i have to sand/prep them first before getting them to you? Or do you prep them too?

    Good to know there's someone local for our powder coating needs. Grew up in Whittier (near uptown) and live in LaHabra Heights, very close.
    I would imagine that a set of rock sliders would be too big for the oven ?

    Looks like you are doing good work. I live in the san fernando valley, and I may be looking to powdercoat my rims. Ill hit you up if the decision becomes final.

    South Whittier is any part of unicorporated county Whittier south of Mulberry/Slauson. I'd have to say the central part of South Whittier would be the intersection of Carmenita and Meyer.

    I just talked to my buddy that I do this with and he said a guy is sending us his from West Virginia and its only costing $15 to ship them, so from nor Cal it shouldn't be too bad to ship if you're willing
