Question about powder coating....does the powder paint flow level to fill tiny pits & such? Not knowing about coating much, I do know they have to be baked, so if it doesn't flow level, then what is used to fill pits that powder will stick to and not be destroyed by the baking process?
BTW...nice work!

powder itself wont fill pits sometimes it only makes them look worse ,they do make a powder fill primer that is amazing ,you can apply as many coats as you need until its perfect then shoot your color

you need to bake/cure everycoat before more can be applied so it can build and fill but the results are worth it for someone going for the perfect look-the cost for perfection can easily get out of hand if the part is real bad to start with

when powder cures it shrinks making it go into any valley or divit etc,when using the fill primer treat it almost like bondo sand out imperfections and apply more if needed

I can shoot powder so it cures anywhere from 1-4 mils no different then liquid paint just alot more durable when applied correctly

how does powder coating looks compared to paint? is it a smoother finish? I know its way more durable. just wondering if you came out smoother.

click on the 1st pic it dont get any smoother than that! there 314 side covers.

not really sure what you mean otherwise,have you looked at all the orange peel on all the new cars and trucks the clear coat is the only thing that makes them smooth

applied correctly with the proper tools I can and do acheive better finishes than any wet painter can !and I dont have to spend 10hrs buffing


the pic of the 420 is the owner of the 216 parts. I did the 420 last fall for him,I did everything but the hood

these are show quality finishes the 420 below and the 216 above received a primer, a color, and clear 3 stages
the 420 in the 1st post just got color and clear

heres an honest question for you guys ,how much do you think I charged for the parts in the 1st post its not all the parts

each tractor consisted of 2 side covers,seat brackets,big pan ,steering tower ,and battery tray ,grill ,
they were blasted and chemically pretreated its part of the price

I don't know much about powder coating...aside from the remarkable results!! :thumbs: I assume that this is not a "do-it-yourself" surface treatment. Is there a lot of expense involved in the necessary equipment?

they do sell hobby equipment ,but its not all there is to it ,sandblasting a part only cleans it -it does nothing to surface treat the substrait(steel,alum,etc)

so unfortunatly theres alot of hacks doing a half ass job

-if your having something powder coated make sure you ask how there going to prep -blasting to white metal and properly applied phoshate -if they dont have that go elsewhere some use a spray bottle if they do RUN FAST---I have a 5 stage's in my washline

my price is more reasonable than you may think -when compared to other forms of metal finishing and the longevity of properly applied powder coat- if someone is restoring any type of farm equipment powder is the only way to go -its all they use nowadays, they just dont do a good job

and just like your signiture says
If something is worth doing, It's worth doing right.

I would post more pics of other things but dont want the moderators to be upset with non tractor items

If you have one or two pics your more than welcome to post them. I like the looks of this powder coating.... If you have alot of pics you can post them in the "off topic" forum. I'm sure others will like to see as well :thumbs:
