Powder Coating Kit

Has anyone had anything to do with one of these powder coating kits? click here. Im pretty keen on getting one, just modify an old oven, and use it to powder coat all my brackets etc in my engine bay, as im from Australia, and i have looked everywhere over here for one, but it looks like i will have to buy one out of the states, which i have no problem with doing, but i would just like to know about the quality of the product.

Thanks in advance for your help

They did a reveiw on one of the car shows on TV over here a few years ago. They said the worked well for small parts.

Word of caution.................Don't use the wifes oven.........She will kill you....

There might even be a thread or two on it but I've heard of people making their own ovens for powder coating by just putting a hot plate element (or two) in an insulated, fireproof box. By making a custom oven, you might be able to compensate for some long skinny pieces (axles etc?) that would not fit in a conventional oven.

I've heard (don't know if its true) that you should only use an electric oven. No gas.
