I wish that i could find an anodizer, not that easy to find one...so I like the idea of the PC, but I'm not familiar w/what the OP is talking about.

With those trans colors u gotta be careful cuz it may not look the way it did on the sample card. I run a jollipop blue from powderbuythepound and it came out lighter than the sample card. Found out for the parts i am coating it was best to use no base coat and just bare aluminum. I know it doesnt answer your question but, wanted to give you a heads up that it may not look 100% how u want and some shops do not warn of this. I will tell you though, powder coating is the easiest form of painting i have done lol. Cheap to get into as well. Bought a simple craftsman all in one powder coating gun, ordered some powder and followed some diy instructions online and my stuff has been turning out great. Aside from powder i am in it for $45 and just use an old oven off CL

Havent gotten around to the hubs yet lol. In fl its always riding season! Here are the levers on my motard. Used jollipop blue. No base coat. Just be warned you will use ALOT of that powder for 1 part. Especially compared to super wet gloss. Its a 95% gloss, love this powder! All this was done @ home with a toaster oven and an hour of free time. Did passenger pegs. Both levers. Shifter lever. Bar clamps. Lever clamps. Ignition key holder. Hose clamps. Starter cover. Engine covers. Rear rack. Frame guards.
