can you do plastics? (i've heard some places can...) and if so, i have 2 plastic pieces I can send you, along with one intake tube (metal)...

Plastics cant be done at this time due to the extreme temperatures of the curing process. They are however working on lower temperature powders at this time we are told.

What kinds of temps are you guys running?

Standard temperatures used on my IM when doing it up silver vein (flawless) didn't melt my VRIS plastic pieces (those round ones sticking off the back of the IM). And yes, some powder coat stuck to them (not jumped across from the IM, but completely separately). Obviously you can't do rubber hoses, but a hardened plastic that someone wants to take the risk on probably wouldn't hurt.

Between 350 and 400 degrees depending on the powder being used. What a mess that could turn into. I can only see this hurting our business and reputation by sending a pretty blob of plastic back to our customer

Hopefully they will come out with lower temp powders just for this purpose. In the meantime, i think spray paint is your best resource for plastics.

how much would it be to do just an intake pipe (like a 3inch diameter 16 inch pipe with a few vacuum ports on it) in a silver matching my VC?

Is there a link out there to see the colors you've mentioned?
BTW, I'm damned interested. I have a project car that's taken apart just begging to be colored.

Well, at the moment I'm liking http://www.columbiacoatings.com/SilverVeinBlueTrans.jpg and http://www.columbiacoatings.com/candyorangeinake.jpg a lot, just not on the same motor at the same time. I think either would go with my teal green '93 GT. Or maybe http://www.columbiacoatings.com/candybluecloseup3.jpg. Or maybe http://www.columbiacoatings.com/Ebay...plewrench1.JPG
Now this is interesting: http://www.eastwoodco.com/shopping/p...iProductID=395 or maybe an Emerald Iridescent.

Hello Barry,

We use Columbias line along with Eastwood's line and a few others. We also have custom colors and additives we can use on standard finishes for a true custom look and finish. Let us know if you need anything done

Yep, I did an online search using Eastwood and Columbia from an earlier post by you. That's when I found those colors I linked to. I have a light teal green GT I'll be doing things to so I have to pick colors that won't clash with that.

Baxter! Got anything close to a "gun metal" type color? Also, how much would you charge me to powdercoat some 17x8.5" wheels a high-gloss black and either polish the lip, or coat it with a high gloss polished type color??

Got any color examples?

Let me know!

I need to get my totally stripped and almost polished v6 IM powder coated. I very much like the Black Chrome.
With my IM, i started sanding it with a 400 grit, would I need to make the metal smoother in order to have a great finish on the top coat?
like if you were to do a completely stock Im... would the Black Chrome fill in the pits or would it match the pits and feel orangy or pitted?

The smoother you have the VC, the better the coating yes. Very small pits would go un-noticeable, large pits will be seen. Black chrome is becoming very very popular here at MBX
