    $100 for a powerdercoating kit

    $25 for powder if you don't want the color that comes with the kit. You'll need about 1.5#

    Find an oven on the side of the road.

    Plug er in and stink up the garage.

    There is an outfit here in KC that quoted me $25 a wheel and another that quoted me $60. I have had them sandblasted and might just paint them, but I can't buy the materials to paint them for $125, so I'm thinking PC.

    i prefer paint over powdercoat on wheels. although not as durable, much cheaper and much easier to touch up.

    My Dad used to go to the state prison and have the inmates do it for him in Phoenix. Real cheap and good quality, but they take their own sweet time.
