Just a little bling bling teaser

Today was very productive - got my buddies head on his E30 S52 GT35R setup and initial stage of 60 ft lbs on a 0.070" MLS done today, with all sealing and stuff, so that's good. I myself spent most of the day bead blasting various parts and then he helped powder coat them. I think it came out re-freakin-diculous.

Looks good. How much do you usually charge for powder coating?

Very clean. I am sure they will hold up well too.

Pics as promised.

Today jay and i did my valve cover xtreme chrome followed by candy gold top coat, turbo housing xtreme chrome + clear, and IC pipes xtreme chrome + clear. All this 2-stage powder coating is a real bitch.

The piping came out excellent pictures to follow tomorrow.

The gold came out "ok" in my opinion. We had trouble getting it to stick and when it would stick it would repel itself and there'd be "bald spots". I think higher voltage is the answer but I am not totally sure. I am going to stray a little from 2-stage powdercoating because its such a bitch. I wonder what would happen if I did gold over blasted aluminum. I have another valve cover to try that on, so we'll see!

The first batch of parts look awesome, but I'm less than thrilled with the way the valve cover came out. It just doesn't seem smoother enough...is that what you were talking about in your post? The texture?

The texture of it is unavoidable. BMW didn't feel it necessary to cast the part smoothly. There is a plastic "BMW" cover that goes over it... but yeah theres really no way to smooth it out. Its cast that way and even sanding would mean that I would just reveal more imperfection.

I am going to coat my current valve cover either a different color or different method.

I did this one with Xtreme Chrome and it looked INSANE, but I am not sure that so much chrome/polished looking stuff will look good.
