    That's funny. I was cleaning the garage up the other day and found the horse shoes I rescued and have had for a year or so that are waiting to be blasted. I was gonna ask you if a PC would last on them.

    They will chip, however they can be burned off, blasted and re coated for the next season. The process takes 2 days to allow for a slow cool from the burn off.

    I used a generic stick on label for the "J" on all sets. This masked the chrome base to bare metal with them. Then when coated with the tinted clear, the image is "ghosted" in and can only be seen under the correct light angle

    One set was done with black tint clear, and one with purple. Here is the purple example

    [​IMG]

    The green ones have a gold "J" which was applied then covered with clear. The hardened clear holds it in place with no feel to your finger, like it was painted on under the clear.

    I tried to coat over a pitted license frame and it turned out poopy, so, like i always do in this situation---into my small oven for a "self clean cycle"

    650 degrees will burn off the powder. No biggie. Then a light blasting and it will be done--whooops!

    Damn, I wish I lived closer to you. I'd have you powdercoat my swing out tire carrier. The raod salt is playing havoc on the paint.

    Maybe eventually when I build mt Sliders and do my SAS I'll have you do all those parts all together and just make a trip out of it.

    Great work man !!!!!

    Love the color on those springs Jon! Do you have any more pictures of the brushed looking finished you did on your wheels? Hopefully we can meet up and I can see them in person.

    This is where I am amazed. The pipes were on bikes which were laid over. Not only did I fill in the "vance and hines" logo plate holes on the short set, but both sets had some deep scrtching, which I filled in. I used JB weld as a body filler.

    Thanks. Lot of tv watching time went into the pipes. Smoothing while listening to history channel--:D

    There's no way to charge for the time, I just wanted to overcome the challenge today.

    I might have to send you some Stang parts so you can put that matte black to use again.
