I have a set of magnesiums that I got cheap. I just got them straightened and called up a powder coat company. They said it generally costs $150 to bead blast and power a set of motorcycle wheels.bob said:I used to work in powder coating - just a couple of tips:
- make sure your coater has a zinc phosphate system, not iron. Alloys and/or aluminum will not etch without zinc. This will GREATLY help with adhesion.
- go ahead and pay extra for a clear coat over the color - it's well worth it.
- use polyester or acrylic based powder with UV protection - this will help it weather better - won't get that ashy coating after a while like some of the cheaper powders do.
