Re: Ayers Garage - Powder coating, ceramic coating, restoration

Can you do bicycles? I have a 1935 Wards Hawthorne which I'd like to pencil in some approximate costs to blast and powdercoat... And those rims you did above are along the same lines of what I'm looking for in the bicycle.

Absolutely. I just did a Felt last week for a guy.






I'll send you a PM and we can talk about what you want.

Gold is one of those colors that doesn't have a good anodized powder available for. I can get anodized red, blue, etc, just not gold.

But, I think we could find a nice gold and then I could put a flat clear topcoat on it to make a pretty close facsimile. This clear I'm talking about turns any basecoat into a semi gloss color that kind of glows in the sun.

Here are some pics of what I'm talking about.




If I did all four hubs at the same time, figure about 120 bucks for the job, assuming the hubs were pretty well degreased and fully disassembled when I got them (no bearings or seals in them).

Re: Ayers Garage - Powder coating, ceramic coating, restoration

Marko,

This shade looks like it might fill the bill with a flat clear topcoat. Note these pictures are not my personal work. They are sample color pictures from my distributor. I don't want to claim anyone else's pictures.

Re: Ayers Garage - Powder coating, ceramic coating, restoration

Marko, we can try that, but it will be full glossy for sure. Candy topcoats are just pigmented clears. If that's what you dig, I'm game.

Re: Ayers Garage - Powder coating, ceramic coating, restoration

That's some pretty nice stuff. I like the idea of vinyl under the coating, I didn't even know that was possible.

What's the turn around time on small stuff? Would it be something where someone could do a ride in ride out type of deal, waiting around watching the artist at work?

Re: Ayers Garage - Powder coating, ceramic coating, restoration

If it's a job using a stocking powder color, I tell folks my turnaround time is 3 days. I usually get it under that, but 3 days is a safe number so I don't disappoint. Customer waiting wouldn't work out really. I do stuff in phases. One day is strip and clean day, one day might be blast day, one day shoot and cure day. It's more efficient that way.

Ahhh, gotcha. Didn't know how you worked things out like that.

Absolutely. I just blast it to etch the chrome so the surface has some tooth for the powder to adhere to.

All of this stuff was chrome. Choose your preference, any black from full gloss to dead flat.

Re: Ayers Garage - Powder coating, ceramic coating, restoration

Question: I'm ordering some saddlebag protection bars for my '10 Kawa Concours14 which is "Candy Neptune Blue" (whatever that is in the real paint world) If I plan on sending them to you for a fairly close match to "Candy Neptune Blue" should I order them Chromed or black powder coated for the best appearance or ease of your reworking on them?? If it doesn't really matter then I'll get them in black.

(I also got some Honda Trail 90 frame/fender/swing arm/gas tank(?)/misc work for you down the road a bit. You can match Coleman Cooler red, right? {see avatar } )

Definitely powdercoat. I can strip it easily and have nice bare metal to blast and coat. With chrome, I have to blast the chrome to etch it enough for adhesion. The labor, and consequently price, is lower with powder finish.

I'd be happy to do your Honda Trail stuff too. I've done a bunch of them and really enjoy the work.

I wonder if anyone is heading up here from Houston anytime soon? Maybe they could just bring it with them? I know that in the next few weeks I will be making a round trip to Austin and back but I don't think that'll help in this case.

Keith was very gracious in his offer and it looks like codyy might be able to help in the future.
