    getting started

    You need the kit, an oven of your choice or heat lamps if you so desire and an air compressor. Then get the colors you want and start in on scraps of metal. Acetone is nasty stuff. Soapy water works well with a clean rinse works well, if you need more then clean with alcohol, it's cheap and won't be as nasty to work with. None of this pretreats for rust on steel or promotes adhesion. There are many types of cleaners/pretreaters on the market that are affordable and friendly to the evironment.

    http://www.harborfreight.com is a good place to start. They have a basic powder coating oven around $400.00. Better to go with this then using your home oven. I use Acetone to clean the parts really good before I powder coat it. You can find Acetone at Wal-mart dirt cheap..

    Hope this helps..

    You need a compressor that outputs between 10-15 psi. It should have an air pressure regulator and should output clean, dry air.

    You should ensure that parts are free of grease. Most commercial degreasers will suffice. You could also use our SP Cleaner.

    Try Sears, Home Depot etc. or http://www.harborfreight.com for good compressors.
