Hello Everyone,

We would just like to thank everyone first and foremost for another already incredible year. MBX has continued to grow more and more each year and only because of customers like you. We would like to take this opportunity to let you know about our latest service in Powdercoating. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the coating and process, please allow us to explain below:


Powder coating is the process of coating a surface in which a powder material is applied using an electrostatic or compressed air method. The applied powder is then heated (cured) to its melting point, after which it flows to form a smooth film which dries to a firm, durable finish very resistent to scratches, cracking, peeling, UV rays and rust.


The unique application characteristics of powder coatings provide superior consistency and uniformity of finish without sags, drips, runs, or bubbles. They provide extremely tough, durable films, enhancing the high quality, value-added image of consumer products. In general, the performance properties, such as impact resistance, flexibility, and corrosion resistance, of powder coatings are better than with liquid paints. Powder coated parts resist cracking, peeling, and marring during handling and normal service use. In many cases, merchandise is specifically being advertised as "POWDER COATED" because of the quality image it projects.

If you would like to have any items Powdercoated such as Intake Manifolds, Valve Covers, Throttle Bodies, Fuel Rails, Alternators, Rims, Brake Calipers, Metal Brackets, Fan Shrouds, Door Sills or anything you can think of powdercoating, please ask us for a quote!

We will take your part and sandblast it, pass it through our parts rinser, powdercoat and bake it leaving an incredible durable show finish.

We can also fill any missing metal from your item ie: Wheels that are knicked or curbed can be filled and then coated!
