    I left the entry way open so that I have room to work since the fan and the gun push the excess powder away from you anyway. Up top I also put in an extra strut across so that I had something to hang parts from as I was coating.

    Ill be moving all of this stuff back to CT so I will take pictures of it when I put it back up. Wheels are getting done on the race bike for 2014 =)
    Ok, that's kinda what I was envisioning

    Chris, I've got a couple random days off (25,26,31,1) but otherwise I'm at work, and it'll be pretty dead around here so I could probably squeeze in some government work.

    My powder coating "booth" is a big rubbermaid container laying on its side. I just hang the parts inside of that and spray them.

    Matt did an incredible job on these parts.
    That dude is OK in my book.

    Finally did my rearsets, rider's footpegs, shifter and brake pedal. The shifter came out a little glossier because I didn't want to bake it as long because I wasn't able to separate the linkage. I forgot to coat the shift rod when I was doing it, but I just hit that with some satin black Krylon.

    The heel plates I painted with a matching blue spray paint, then some clear. It was kind of a test to see how well the paint held up. Well, after only 1 ride to work, the zipper from my suit made them look pretty crappy. I'll be coating those soon.

    If anyone is looking for an oven I have one sitting in my garage I need to get rid of
    It's full size electric. Top range still works so you can cook and bake your parts while you wait.
    How about 30$ and you do some parts for me.

    Nice paint job. The only paint job I have done is painting my bike's rims with plastidip.
