Postby Mr Joshua » Mon Apr 30, 2012 3:40 pm

Just got done powder coating one of my rims. Coating turned out ok but am trying to decide if i like the color i hva picked out before i coat the other three.

What does every one think? I can get a more silver color or i can put a clear top coat on it with a high gloss or a medium gloss.
Thanks

I'd probably just give it another coat of silver.

It may just be the lighting, but it looks like it might be a little darker than the originals were. If you like the color, that's all that counts.

Powder coating the rims is great if you want to show only, I had all our tractors powder coated , the problems I faced are as follows
1 the clear coat over the silver tends to look stained after numerous washings
2. surface rust is beginning to bleed through
3 bridging of powders leads to rust around any attachments like the mounting brackets on the rim

" Solutions"

1 repaint the clear coat from time to time
2 keep in a reletively dry place and keep rims waxed and polished
3. I put clear silicone around any areas that may have been bridged during powder coating. that may flake off, to keep the moisture out.
Just a few things I have noticed on our 49 after 7 yrs after resdtoration. I did these on our 1940 M we restored last yr hope to keep the rims show qaulity for yrs .

Just remember that these rims didn't have any coating on them from the factory, so there is no "correct" color.
