Default Powder coating info.

Met HItoAK tonight and he bought my old MSR wheels. They had some paint cracking off. He asked me about local Powdercoating shops.

I know there are multiple places that do this line of work but wanted the group to speak about their personal knowledge of these businesses to show him how resourceful this AKIC community can be.

Lets help a new addition to the state. Whadda ya say?

What's the average price for this task? Got a co-worker's friend asking about it and I rediscovered this awesome pre-drama thread.

I seem to recall it was under $70 per wheel for my 16s a few years ago at Advanced, but I think he cut me a deal because I removed the valves and centercaps. I also gave them a good scrub-down before I dropped them off.

I, too, have used Advanced Powdercoating and was very happy with their service. They turned my particular order around very quickly and were flexible in having someone other than me pick them up since I live in Anchorage. All in all, two thumbs up to their customer service and the quality of the product.

I have quotes with Advanced right now for the following:

18x9.5 DPT's - need to be cleaned and sandblasted then coated, 85 per wheel

18x8.5 BBS - Need to be sandblasted then coated - 80 per wheel

This is using my custom color mix that I discussed with them as well.
Super awesome guys, REALLY worth the trip to Wasilla.

For the price I should have just taken my winter set over there instead of doing all the work myself w/ standard paint. Oh well guess I'll clean em up after break up and go there now lol

I think I was told they do ceramic coating as well? I can't remember if the flyer Tribal gave me was the same place.

What temperature does advanced bake their paint? I want to get something done but don't want the strength/structure of my component compromised by baking it too hot.

not sure but they dont over or undercook. My rims were done at precision like 4 years ago and they are chipping now because they were undercured. they need to bake for like 40mins i wanna say at 250, either way they do good work and they stand behind it if they make a mistake.

ohh no! I'm picking up my rims tomorrow from precision. Was charged 600 dollars for a set of 4 18 in rims. But... I went with the candy purple powder coat so it is more expensive. I believe that the normal price is like 110 per rim for a normal color. I'll post pictures when there done. Thinking of adding silver flakes to them so there more glossy

They will look fine, if they bake for 15 mins they look good but wont have the longevity they should

Yeah.. I would not pay that much for powder coating.
The color I'm getting is a pretty special mix and didn't cost any extra.

Nvm. lol

For a moment I was going to say the gas cost may offset the difference... but didn't really pay attention to the earlier 85/per mentioned before.

I just got quoted $100 per caliper at Anchorage Custom Powdercoating. Will shop around some more before final decision is made.
