    Lonsdale Powder Coaters.

    I've had a bunch of stuff done there years ago. They have so many colours and a big oven. Good stuff.

    Just a thought...

    Mask off where the wheel pieces mate before powder/paint, since sometimes tollerances will be too tight with that extra coating to make reassembly difficult. Wisdom from a friend who plays with/collects old BBS wheels.

    Oh, and make sure you post up the results.

    my wheels are a 1 piece, so no need to mask anything off as i'm getting the whole wheel done.

    need to do a ring around this we

    Yeah i was a powder coater for a few years use to paint the wheels for denzo and all the candy cam covers and junk,Abbinett powder coaters on Beafield rd Para Hills use to be good.Try ARTMETAL at holden hill next door to adelaide jap on Jacobsen cres,Just tell em travo sent you there one of the best in adelaide ide say,I done pretty much everything under my car i could.Wheels from memory just for the center part you'd be looking at say 25$ to 30$ a wheel with sandblasting if you tape all the dish up Depending on the colour,Take my advice..Doubble up on the masking tape even tripple up the more the better and its easier to remove thicker tape than thin stuff and make shure you put clear over any silver based powder as it fades real quick in the sun and goes brittle looking other colours are fine,Hope this helps ya mate
