Powder Coating Aluminum Intake

I'm polishing my aluminum intake right now and I was wondering if you can powder coat it? What I want is it 60% powder coated and 40% polished to give it a different look. I'm sanding down the porous surface of the intake and polishing the plenum and center intake runners. The rest I want to powder coat. Should I use High heat coating for this or can I get away with the standard coating? Reason I ask about the high heat is there are only a few colors in high heat. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Powder Coating

I just happen to be in the powder coating business. I do this all the time. How difficult it is depends on what you want to remain polished. Sometimes it can be tough. I also have an idea for you. Th whole manifold can be polished, then a candy color applied over the areas that you want colored and you get the polished shine under the color you choose. We can even add metal flake over and or under the candy for a really great look. check our our website for some pictures.

Here's one I polished and then clear coated using Eastwoods coater and their powder...nothing high temp. Here is a thread about the process...the manifold discussion starts at entry #13. In that thread I also included side by side photos of the manifold before coating and after coating so you can get an idea of the luster that you might expect to loose via the coating.

Powder Coating and pictures

Sorry Guys, I guess I did not do it right. Our website is **************. You will see pics of some of our powder coating. We had our site crash just before Christmas and lost A TON of Pics. If necessary, you can e-mail me at ************** and I can send pics.

Thanks. If this is not alright to do on this site, Mr Editor, please let me know. I have no wish to operate outside the rules to promote my business.

But if you guys would like to see the stuff we do at ***********. ********** is the place to do it.

Chuck

My Mistake

Mr. Moderator, and all other members.
I just read the 3 rules concerning promoting your business on this and several forums. Please understand that I have no wish to operate outside the rules here. I just was not aware of how to do it or not do it. Can I post pictures of some of things we have done to spark the imagination of readers concerning what can be done with powder coating that most people do not think is possible?

The e-mail address posted earlier is my personal e-mail address. Please be aware that the e-mail address is not associated with the business, or website. This IS the address where I answer questions relating to powder coating and internet sales and customer service.

Thank you for the information and the education.

Chuck Clark

No problem. You can post pictures from your site all you want. Just right click on the pic and select properties and then copy and paste the url of the pic in the insert image box here. You can also add your web site address to your member profile and direct people there to see the link. You just can't post the link to your web site in the forums.
