So I know people have done this, haven't heard anyone chime in on how they lasted in the long run though. What I'm planning to do to save on cost, (I'm a college student, working part time makin 8$ an hour lol!) is to get the entire rim powdercoated including hubs and spokes. Yes I'm aware it would be best to take them apart and do it, but I'm seriously limited on budget and the rims still turn out good when powdercoated completely assembled. Which gets me to the question. What all would I have to mask off (or tell the powdercoaters to mask off). The inside of the hub, and the threads for the brake rotor anything else? I'd love to see pics of rims that have been powdercoated this way too if you have any.
