    Congradulations on your first part. It came out real nice.

    All the powders when sprayed on a part look fuzzy. Sometimes the fuzzy-ness looks so good in some colors that I wish it would look like that after being cured.

    Outgassing isn't such a big issue on mild steel (am I correct that the part is steel?) and billet aluminum but it is a big hassle when dealing with cast aluminum such as valve covers and aluminum intakes.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of powder coating and the relentless pursuit for even better results.

      Thankies. nope it is aluminum. My 2nd part is also aluminum but it was about 1/2" think and I think I should have pre-heated it before coating. Well luck for me it is a good friend who is letting me experiment on his parts!! Glad I ordered yellow from here as the Harbor Frieght Yellow is too orange for me but he likes it. I will be doing a few more parts today. Man this is cool.

        Harbor Freight is also *way* out of line on price. Caswell's powder is usually half the cost of HF, and comes in about a hundred more colors
