Custom Wheel Refinishing

Custom Wheel Refinishing

A customer of our came in for wheel refinishing with his Jeep SRT. He wanted to change the color from the polished aluminum to gloss black. We removed the wheels from his Jeep and put it on jack stands during the wheel refinishing process. Then we removed the tires. We noticed all the the wheels had some curb rash damage. The customer opted to repair all the rash which was a little extra in labor cost. We began the wheel refinishing by stripped this wheels in a chemical bath. This removes all the paint, clearcoat and any dirt or debris. It also etches the surface slightly. After stripping we repaired the wheel damage and media blasted the surface to insure powder coat adhesion to outlast the warranty we provide.

After the wheels were cool and came out of the oven, we hand painted the inside of the SRT logo with silver leaf paint. After all was said and done, the wheels turned out well.

Dustless Sandblasting

Powder Coating Harley-Davidson Parts

Powder Coating Harley-Davidson Parts

Our long time friend Pete came in last week for powder coating Harley-Davidson chrome parts for his motorcycle bike. Since we can not powder coat directly over chrome, we knew we had a challenge.

We would need to etch the chrome in some way for the powder to stick. We ended up media blasting the chrome with 34 grit aluminum oxide. This takes about four times longer than any other material to etch.

We set up our automated media blaster with rotisserie to blast his items for about an hour. After that done, we did touch ups for around 30 minutes to get everything even and etched properly. We then cleaned and prepped the surface throughly and hung the parts for powder coating. We use Cardnal Industrial Finishes, BLACK Super Durable 90 Gloss, color code P009-BK180. This extremely glossy powder will withstands the riggers of the road and lasts five times longer than any other powder. As you can see the finish and the glossiness is pretty amazing.

Powder Coating S550 Mercedes-Benz Wheels

Powder Coating S550 Mercedes-Benz Wheel Project

Last week, we completed a customer’s Mercedes Benz wheel project. We powder coated the wheels super durable red, coated the calipers, installed new brake pads and rot

ors and made new decals for the wheels and calipers.

The process for the S550 Mercedes Benz wheel project started with freshly chemically stripped wheels, cleaned and prepped. two coats were applied (not in video) to hide thin spots and to ensure a uniform finish. This powder has a 90% gloss and looks wet all the time. It’s very easy to clean due to the glossy nature of the powder. Soap and water clean the brake dust off with ease. We also coated the calipers black, installed AMG decals on the calipers and logos, Mercedes logos on the caps and finished it off by replacing the brake pads and rotors. with Akebono zero dust pads and Zimmerman rotors.
