    Powdercoating shop in MD?

    anyone know of a good powder coating shop in MD, preferably near the Columbia area although I have no problems traveling.

    Looking to possibly get some quad exhaust tips done in a gunmetal color.

    I cannot personally recommend any of these, because I have never had anything powdercoated. Maybe they will help.

    High Tech Powder Coating
    7806 Old National Pike
    Boonsboro, MD
    (301) 487-5427
    Website http://www.htccoatings.com

    They did my bike frame and my '02 head cover. Bike frame came out with orange peel which I sanded down (1500#) and polished. Looks great. Head cover looks good also. I think I paid around $150 for both, but it's been a couple of years.

    Haven't tried:
    Technical Finishers
    180 Penrod Ct. Suite G
    Glen Burnie, MD 21061
    (877) 590-5600

    Also:
    Sandblast-America
    6974 Wellington Road
    Manassas, VA 20109
    www.sandblastamericallc.com/
    They can do your whole car, I understand.

    Finally, if you have access to an oven that isn't used for cooking food, take a look at the powder coating gun at Sears for around $100.

    Can anyone comment on the rumor I have heard concerning Powdercoating wheels? I heard/read that the heat used to bake and cure the powder is high enough that it weakens alloy wheels.
    I am prepping a set of wheels for painting right now with many applications of oven cleaner to remove the millimeters deep caked on PF97 and Hawk blue dust. I am planning to use a strong primer, 2 coats of Wurth silver, and a coat or two of clearcoat. Any bright ideas to ease the removal of this uber dust would be appreciated.

    Bob -

    Brian Hair turned me on to a product called Rejex. It works very well on wheels. In fact, I now also use it on the car. Recommend it highly.
