I'm looking to have some rims powdercoated....Anyone know of a good shop around Seattle/Renton that is reasonably priced?

I'm interested in this thread.

Powdercoating might be better than KRYLON or HAMMERITE...

Powdercoating might be too thick for firearms..

I still want to see someone try it though..

Saw a powder coating rig for sale recently--a Craftsman, I believe it was. Not Harbor Freight, just scanned the flyer...oddly, my first thought was "Wonder how that would work on guns?"

bigscrun....that is awesome...b/c every shop I call wants $65 per rim to PowderCoat. I would be sandblasting it myself, so I couldn't justify $65 a rim.

This isn't a special "bigscrun deal" is it?

Blasphemy, I say! Nothing can touch the durability, the beauty, nay, the QUALITY of KRYLON!! Long live Krylon! All hail!!

Anyone know how I prep old rusty chrome rims for powder coating? I have a sandblaster at my disposal.

If I was going to Krylon it, I was just going to sand down any surface rust....clean it off with brake cleaner....use some self etching primer....then spray it w/ Krylon.

bigscrun...called them up and looks like you're getting a good deal...it's about $10/wheel more for the general public, but they're still the best deal I've found.

It's $15 more for chrome wheels, b/c you have to "fog blast" them to rough up the chrome in order for the PC to adhere.

I might just have to go for the Krylon route.

I saw the Gunco giveaway RPK that was done by Greenlight in powdercoat--very nice. If done right it's an awesome finish for AK's.
