Rob, who did you end up going with on the Blasting and Podwer Coating? How much was it? How would you say they did?

Dave also in the other thread had this to say...

Does anyone have an opinion or input either way? Getting my "tire situation" taken care of, and was thinking it might be nice to get the wheels cleaned up while I'm at it. Does anyone have any "NEW" info about these places or any others?

While I do some powder coating myself, IMO some items would be best painted than powder coated. Coating is baked into bare metal. Some "exposed" parts like bumpers and wheels can and do get chipped. When powder coat gets chipped there is NO "re-coating" the chipped area!!! It must be blasted clear to bare metal as a whole, re-coated and then baked again. Whereas painted parts that get chipped can easily be sanded and repainted at the chipped spot then "buffed" to match the rest of the paint. :cool:

It is mostly personal preferrence and with that said, the 8-spoke rims on my Bug are coated! 8-[

This is the company I went with,

Custom and Commercial
14547 Hawthorne Avenue
Fontana, CA 92335
Bus: 909-357-3505 Fax: 909-357-0443

I talked to the owner for a bit told him what I wanted and what kind of deal he could give me. If I remember correctly I think the deal he gave me was $145.00 that included widening two rims and powder coating all four rims. Again not positive but it was a lot less expensive than Stockton Wheel. I'm happy with them :grin:

I used self etching primer and DupliColor engine enamel on my wheels. 2+ years and still in good shape. Cost: About $25.

But that is just my opinion. Do what you want.

Thanks Pyro...for the benefit analysis...it is helpful.

David & Bill...thanks for the reality check!

Rob...that sounds like a kickass deal you got. Basically it sounds like the dude threw in the powder coating, or charged you next to nothing...?

Prolly will go with a rattle can combo like OB Bus...if I can't get a quick and sreamin deal on powder coating locally? NOT!

Itching to get the BFGs on there, spray em and go!...so many things and never enough time...Summer VACAY...right Bill and David?
