my friend he found a used house oven and he took the racks and shit out of it and he just bys the powder and the conductor wire and some hangers and he does all his own shit for a fraction of the cost of professonal pwdercoaters and it looks nice too :thumbsup:
Eastwood generally has good stuff.
Harbor Freight has China junk.
I'd expect the Eastwood powdercaot to be as good or better than OEM, since OEM stuff just has to look good in the showroom. After that, it's the customer's problem.
my kids got the new one for boys calld queezey bake oven. they made dog food and all kinds of nasty sounding stuff out of sugar and little mixes. i thought it was funny. it got trashed a long time ago :lol:
Glad this topic got brought up. I was looking at kits online yesterday. Dont know which one to buy yet but would definitely be nice to have. I know eastwood makes good stuff and craftsman is usually at least good enough and better than a lot on most things.
Sure it looks easy... Pro's are demonstrating it...lol
I'll pay the extra few buck's to avoid the hassel and mess. I have a good friend that does custom airbrushing and graphics on just about anything. Long story short knowing the industry he got a kick out of it. If you can pull it off let it rip and make some dough!!
Dont get me wrong, I dont know that I would try to do anything more than brackets, levers, things like that. Not even wanting to make money or even really save money. Just that powdercoat is much more duarable, assuming you know how to prep something correctly. Be nice to do it when at 10 pm you have to make up a bracket or are getting ready to put your levers or pegs back on you decide to make them look nice while they are off. When ever I am reassembling anything I always try to make it nice before it goes back on, I mean you might as well while it is off instead of messing with it later. Just nicer option as opposed to hitting it with a rattle can.
But I am with you. Leave the stuff that matters to the guys that know what they are doing. Unless it is yours and you just want to say " I did it myself", which is the route I like to go. I love it when my buddies that take everything to the shop to get done and they look at my bike and say "who did that"? I did
