      Very nice, and do those all have clear over them? I'm still wanting to send a few things to you if the shipping will work out. I have a growing group of polished aluminum stuff, two pairs of FMS valve covers for example. That kind of thing can't be left raw aluminum.

      Thanks for the remarks!
      Yes Don,I used Clear Vision as a top coat on all.
      I have a color named heavy silver which, with a flat ( no gloss) clear, looks like blasted aluminum, complete with the tiny little sparkles that blasted aluminum shows in sunlight.

      @Turdle powdercoated this for me over seven years ago. :snicker:I finally got ambitious enough to put it on yesterday since it was in the low 60's in late December...

      Not pictured is the other bolt/bracket and nut.

      we have some 15 year old Delta bathroom fixtures, in chrome. A bath fill with diverter, shower head and 2 body sprays, along with a shower control and 2 body sprays. Monitor 1800 series.

      Being tired of the chrome I found they sell refacing kits. Ok, just enough to do the delta stuff was 867.00 plus shipping. Me being cheap and all,

      I mixed up some powders, was happy with the result so I went for it. Here's a before and an after. Another shot of the stainless steel grab bars in same color, before and after

      Thanks guys.
      Funny how a wife can say " go ahead and buy that silly shower stuff for a grand" but when i say i need a set of coilovers and brackets, she says " you don't
      need to go anywhere so why do you need those?" and as far as she's concerned I still don't need to go anywhere. go figure.

      Whoa whoa whoa. Don’t get crazy. You can’t equate the two. (She might be watching shhhhhhhh).in all seriousness though, you should get with a builder, remodeled, or flipper, if that stuff wasn’t a pain in the ass to do.

      Thanks! I'm not alone...

      I want to buy race car parts and hear the old "We can't Afford That" communist party line.

      But the bosslady can go out and buy a Vera Bradley purse because "Everyone Has Seen The One I Have"...

      Not including removal from the wall, which was a bit of a hassle because it was to be saved, there is about 10 hours total in that. I used some clr and hand scrubbed all the calcium off before blasting, heat dried, blasted and then 2 batches through the oven 2 times for clear. The whole process was way longer though because I had to walk away at times-
