The powder coating on my AC blacklines dosn't seem to have bonded at all. I only went ridding for a little while at the mx track and when I went to wash them the powder coating started flaking off. I was using just a hose and not the pressure washer. Any one else have problems with their AC nerfs?

Sounds like it wasnt bonded dense enough ..maybe improper grounding or not enough charge when powder coating?..

Mine seem to be okay. Numerous digs from the rock trails here, but they don't appear to be flaking off as of yet. Bummer about yours... could it be a warranty issue??? AC seems to be a quality manufacturer overall....

definately a bonding problem guam..looks more like it was caused by the hardness process(the oven)

Man, that sucks.
It reminds me of a car I had in the late '70s. Ordered brand new. They said not to wash it for a month til the paint cured, which I'm guessing was common back then cause I was told that twice :confused:. I didn't figure rinsing mud off the rocker panels and such with a hose would hurt... it looked just like that where the mud was. The mud had bonded better to the paint than the paint had to the metal :mad:

I'd call 'em.

Congrats! I'm glad they are taking care of you, even sending you a new set and covering all costs. This particular post just sold my buddy on a set for his yfz. Quality product and service.
