    Hello MNSubaru family. My name is Jason, some of you may also know me under my other screen name, twiztid_rs. Over the past year I have been working on setting up a Powder Coating business on the side. My goal was to set up a business that I would enjoy doing and be able to do around my regular job and my family time. I have a decent amount of powder colors options on hand and have literally thousands of options available to order. I do have a smaller Blast cabinet as well, that I can blast parts if you are just looking to clean something up and not looking to have them coated. Anything that isn't able to fit in my cabinet I outsource to a local business that has done great work for me. The oven that we have is 3'x3'x5' inside dimensions, so I can fit most any parts you'd look to have coated next to a bumper or something like size.

    Here is a link to my Facebook page, please check it out and give it a like.
    http://www.facebook.com/fusioncoating

    I am located in Southern MN which I know is not optimal for the majority of members here, but I am glad to work with you in getting parts back and forth through shipping or if I'm up in the cities on the weekends.

    If there is anything I can do, please let me know, shoot me a PM and I'll respond back as soon as I can.

    I'm working on putting a General Pricing sheet/guide together, but anyone that has had any powder coating or painting done can tell you its tough to have "blanket" pricing. I also will not discuss pricing in this thread, so please do not ask. If you have a pricing question or any other question for that matter, Please PM me. I will respond as soon as I can.

    Thanks

    Jason

    Put together a "general" price list on my facebook page the other day. I also have a few projects setting in the garage currently. Going to drop off a set of wheels, some antique home decor pieces, and a small out door table to my media blaster this week. I'll be posting up some progress pictures in the coming weeks.

    Here is the general pricing I've put together. Mind you this is a starting point which includes blasting, cleaning, and general prep. Certain jobs may require extra prep/blast time or extra masking which may effect the price some. I do ask a down payment on special order colors prior to ordering.

    @Aluminati shipped over a new shift knob last week. First off these things are awesome just raw aluminum. I coated it in base coat and then a translucent red. Really like how well machined these are and how the coating came out.

    First picture is in full light

    Here it is in lower lighting

    That tree stand looks amazing, killer job!

    For the brake calipers, is that price assuming they have been disassembled of seals etc when dropped off? Otherwise those prices seem too cheap!

    The price is for them ready for prep and blasting. All parts need to be disassembled prior. Thanks for asking. I should have clarified that earlier.

    New powders arrived yesterday! I found a 2 stage blue that looks like it will be a close match to WRB! Keeping my fingers crossed it turns out, I will keep you updated.

    Few other colors are for a custom colored trike I will be coating for a Auction fundraiser. I will be posting pictures when that is done.

    As always, thanks for the support and interest!

    A local Car group asked me if I could help out with their Winter Car meet. They were doing a silent auction to support the Eagles Club Cancer Benefit. I coated an old Radio Flyer Tricycle in Alien Silver, a 2 coat Alien Silver/Powder Blue and a Pearl White. The Silver and Blue were top coated with a High Gloss Clear and the Pearl White was top coated with a Glow in the Dark Clear. It ended up bringing in $150 to help a great cause.

    A customer had this awesome Harley Davidson sign laser cut and dropped off to get coated in Wrinkle Black. This is going to look nice hanging in a garage or man cave.

    Here is the current project. Customer still needs to drop off 2 more wheels, as well as the grille, side steps, and tank straps in the next few weeks. All parts are going to be coated in Ink Black and high Gloss Clear. The customer is also going to fabricate custom hexagon stacks which will be coated in a flat black high temp powder.

    Wheels that were a time crunch as the customer needed them in gloss black on short notice to have his car ready for Automotions.

    This is a picture the customer sent me after he installed all new stainless hardware, and showing off his custom lug nuts.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but wouldn't headers/exhaust manifolds need something higher than 1200*? Exhaust gas temps that i've seen can exceed that(whether they should or not it is a different story).

    Looking awesome J! Keep up the good work!

    Most things I have read, Granted I haven't spent hours researching it, The internal temps when checked with a probe can reach upwards of 1200-1300 degrees under normal load. Obviously something for track use or an engine not running properly can increase greatly. The external temps measure between 600-800 with a thermal gun from what I have read, which is well within the rating for this powder. Regardless, this was a test run with a new product to see how durable it is and I figured why not really test it as the header is going to really magnify the abuse.

    Had a customer drop off another Test piece for me to gauge how well the High Temp Powders work and hold up. This time it was Exhaust for a Ducati Monster. If this stuff holds up well as advertised, we will soon be offering high temp coating services.

    Do you have any figures on calculated surface temp drops with these coatings?

    None as of yet. My supplier does not list anything and Neither customer of mine has picked up or installed these parts. I'm hoping to be able to get readings with the temp gun to see what differences the coating makes. I'll update if I have the chance to.

    Is that rated for 1200F or 1200C? If it's F, then I think you're going to end up disappointed, put the wrx on the dyno and do some good pulls... Your supplier should be able to get you 2000F ceramics, those work great.
