Ok, guys I am just posting to tell you about one of my sponsors. This place is one of the best powder coating facilities around and honestly has the best pricing. Great customer service and a refundable core if you send your old valve cover or whatever was coated. www.trgperformance.com is the site. Tom is the owner and he does really amazing work. If any of you have questions feel free to ask or talk to tom. He also does really great work at polishing and chroming. He powdercoated my valve cover but polished the letters on it They do great work, so If you are in the need for something powdercoated,polished or chromed, drop them a line. If you tell Tom that Kasey sent you, he will most likely give you a better price if thats even possible since his prices are reasonable...

looks like a good fair price, but people that want to do it them selfes could do it cheaper(well that is if they do more then just the valve cover)

The average person doesn't usually have powercoating equipment in their garage :). I could polish it like they do, but thats the extent of my equipment.

powder coat is cheap and easy to do, here is how you can make an oven that will fit most things up to the size of an atv frame. We made one that was six feet long, and 4 feet high and as wide as our mod rear end. used simple steel and sheet metal to make the box, even used some wood. then covered it in a insulating mat, and made a door on one end. For heat we used two forced air heaters, like you would in your gaurage in winter the tube ones. Make sure you have an air outlet or the back pressure will kill the heaters, it gets plenty hot for a valve cover, we do our rear ends for our mod in it. we have a smaller one madeout of an old oven the ones with the coil tops, then boxed that in and walla small powder coater, itd do a valve cover and u could get an old electric oven cheap, 30 to 50 bucks maybe even free like we did. POWDER COAT IS CHEAP TO DO BY YOUSELF>!!! hotcoat is what we use. oh you have to have a comp. with reg. and a powdercoat gun.

When I bought my house last year, the previous owner left an old stove in the kitchen. I had it out in the garage before donating to the local landfill. Was going to try to use it to powdercoat, but I had no room in the house, certainly not using it outside my house..... my neighbors wouldn't appreciate the stink.

there shouldt be any smell, unless you burn it or the ovens had to many burnt pizzas in it. We do ours indoors, and the only smell is from the heaters. We cant paint wiht a gun it sets off the fire alarms, like car paint but our powder coating doesnt so its not fumy either

Thats cool and what not if you can do it yourself. But 9 out of 10 times you can tell when it was an amature person doing it in their garge. I would rather just pay and have a show quality job done and not have to recoat it all the time, or not do it just right, because I am about show. But for those of you who can do it yourself, more power to you, thats an awesome skill to have..if you know what your doing(its not as easy to make it look great as you think)

well for it to look good alls you have to do is have it clean and smooth, not to hard for a valve cover, for it to last, the hotter the bake the harder it gets, too long or to hot burns, cool two step coats are awsome too btw, and polish and then a candy red looks really cool. just some ideas. And yes it is true, it does take paitence and some skill to do, but powder coat is nothing like paint, its pritty brainless if you follow the insructions, it sticks almost to anything metal. Its not to exp to get it done either, wed charge about 20 to 30 for a valve cover thats got a cool two step powder job, im doing my whole front subframe and a arms and calipers in powder.
