  • Powdercoat (in SD)?

    Hey guys,
    I'm looking to have my airbox and valve cover powdercoated crinkle black. I would do it myself, but I don't want to ruin the FG airbox. I was wondering if anyone knew of a place in 92115. Also, if anyone has had it done, how much did it run you? Thanks

    Chris

    *EDIT*
    Since I hope a lot of the SD guys will chime in here, I was also wondering if you guys knew of any good exhaust shops around here. Looking to get a custom single exhaust welded up to go along with my alpha-N/airbox install.

    Chris,

    The oven for powdercoating gets to about 450 degrees F. Your fiberglass will be toast by that point. If you spray with VHT wrinkle spray paint, you only need to slightly heat it. Check with the FG manufacturer (JEDM3?) first to make sure it can handle the temperature...

      Good point, John said it could handle the oven heat ( I think the crinkle paints only need to be heated to ~100* )

        CeeP....call San Diego Powder Coating in Santee at 619-956-0987. When Michele (secretary) answers, look for Philip or Bob. A cleaned, ready to powder coat valve cover will go around $50 - $70. I did not ask for the air box since I do not want it powder coated.
