    Hey i just scored sum 16" bbs rims from trademe last night for $90 w/tyres on... awesome price ;-)
    I was just wondering if any of the kiwi guys in here knew of a good powder coater that does a great job but at a good price..

    These are the rims

    nice pickup!

    it cost me $40/rim to have my 17's powder coated, so i wouldn't pay anymore than that.

    saw them on TM, but they wont fit over my brembos so gave them a miss even thou they went bloody cheap!

    HPC http://www.hpcoatings.co.nz/ or Pro Coat http://www.procoat.co.nz/,
    dont skint on it or it will just peal/flake, do it once, do it right.

    just so you are aware, when items are have been coated,
    they are baked in a oven at a high temperature, to harden the coating

    this will soften the metal, making it easier to bend/buckle,

    personally i wouldnt recommend powder coating mags,

    i would have them painted.

    Yeah i was pretty happy getting them so cheap even if i dont use them i will easily make a profit off them.

    I am with Carsten on this, we only ever get rims painted. Most mobile guys these days do a good job for a good price. I reckon we pay about $35AU per rim, I think that works out about $17,000NZ :cool:

    I dunno, you've changed it a bit in the last few hours. The current one looks good though.
