I hope it's OK to use this thread. Just wanting to know if anyone has ever done any powder coating themselves.

Personally no, but a neighbor of a former coworker did powder coat some parts for me in his garage.  I have a place within two miles of me that will do it cheap.  I had all my engine brackets done for $20.00 (cash).  A new rear diff cover was $10.00.  With that kind of pricing I personally wouldn't bother doing it my self.

I haven't used that process, but wondered how it held up to rust (?) I see that some folks on another forum had their entire frame powder coated. I suppose that's OK if it's a show type car & doesn't get wet..

I wanted to have my frame powdercoated but decided against it. From what I've read, its tough to fix chips on it and a street driven car will get chips. So I went with epoxy instead.

Yes, it's more difficult to fix chips in powder, but powdercoat is MUCH more resilient than just hitting it with a rattle can (and it looks a heck of a lot better as well). idk about getting your entire frame coated, you'd need a MASSIVE oven to pull that off. Unless you're trying to take your car to Autorama, I'd just hit it with POR-15 and call it good.

The reason I was asking is I have been thinking of getting into sand blasting and powder coating along with doing full restoration on cars from top to bottom. Thought I might get some tips on the powder coating. I saw that the powder is sold in 8 oz. units. Seemed like a very small amount and isn't cheap unless it doesn't take a lot to cover things.

Most powders are actually pretty inexpensive. The powder itself is actually going to be one of the cheaper things you'll need. You need the gun (which requires electrical and compressed air connections), a clean place to spray the powder (such as a paint booth), and an oven large enough to hang your parts (DON'T use your kitchen oven). You'll also need high-temp tape and teflon plugs for masking stuff off.

Eastwood has starter powder-coating kits that are reasonably priced. Your biggest expense will be an oven -- as wispartan mentioned, not the same one you prepare food in. For large parts, there are infrared heat lamps you can supposedly use to cure a section at a time without having an industrial-sized oven, but I don't know how effective they are.

I new a guy who used to powder coat motorcycle parts. He picked up a scrap kitchen stove with over and hooked it up in his garage. He also used an old toaster oven for the smaller parts. Came out real nice.

Harbor freight has a small powder coat system for $65 bucks on sale right now. They also have the powders in 16 oz. containers for $5.50 a piece.

Seems like a cheap way to go for small parts on your car. Figure less than $90 from harbor freight and you have all their colors (4) and the gun setup. Pickup a toaster oven on craigslist or a garage sale and your good to go.

Huh, I wouldn't have thought a toaster oven would cut it -- doesn't it have to bake at 400°?

it depends on the powder, but it's usually in the 350-400 range.

From what I have saw it can be done for under 2,000 easy with professional equipment. But it will be a while before something like that would happen for me.
