Re: Powdercoating?? Doing it myself...
What do You want the powdercoating for?
If You want it for the look, than OK it looks very nice.
If You want it for rost protection, than go for hammerite!
Why, becasue with Hammerite You see what happens to Your metal during the coming years, and You can rework it everytime You want. Powdercoating almost always looks nice, but sometimes You do not know what is going on under it, plus You can not easily rework it if it is neccesary even on a smal spot.
For example, I drive a 67 Triumph TR 4 A in winter rallyes like the historical rallye monte carlo. 10 Years ago I made a body off nut and bold restoration. The frame and everything on the frame is painted with Hammerite.
The result is that salt ice smal stones everything You can find did not harm the metal, and everytime i have the car on a lift I take a look and have a smal brush with hammerite in my hand to make 1 or 2 tini spots.
So like You see, it is a question of what You want from the work You are willing to do.
