Hey guys,

Who's done some powdercoating? I'm thinking of powdercoating my calipers black and painting the little clip red.

Where's a good place to send them to for powdercoating?

Save your time and hard earned money and just go to Canadian Tire and get the Dupli-Color Caliper paint kit. Works just as good as the expensive Folia Tech caliper paint.

I did the same and its held up really really well. But there's no question that powder coating is better; especially when it comes to cleaning.

Keep in mind that most powder coating places are going to want you to have the calipers fully disassembled.

Thanks for the feedback guys! I'm pretty sure I'm going to powder coat as opposed to paint. And yes, I know that I'll have to disassemble, but nothing worth doing is ever easy.

Back to the question - know of any good shops?

On the left side of the building there is a door in the middle. Ask for the plant manager Maria......you can deal in cash with her.

Yes, Byers Bush does. Don't see why the other places wouldn't, either.
