Get Outta MY Waytay - UTVUnderground Approved
Ok I would like to have trinity in AZ paint these but dont have time for travel back and fourth. So I need teryx plastics and door panels painted. It would be the hood, 2 rear fenders, 2- door panels aluminum and the two rocker panels below your feet on the outside. WHO can do this in san diego or close. Fair price and good turn around time. Not looking for something I would die if I scratched but something that looks good. Please Pm or post info... I am in san diego

Wet coat on panels isnt always the best if you put decals on waytay....you may want to powder the panels.......but maybe I am wrong.......

Let me ask around to the boys and see if they gto someone for you.....
 
i had trinity paint mine and the easiest way is greyhound bus, cost me like 40 bucks to ship the plastics each way and they arrive same day. $40 same day delivery, how can you beat that? you just need a big box to package them in.....
 
well look who decided to come play in the baddest looking site around.........

You can only lurk for so long before you got to jump int he ball game!!

Joey I dont think you can powder coat plastics can you??
 
freaking amazing i never thought of powdercoating plastic, i wonder if i can just buy the paint seems the process is same and my fencce company next door do my plastics not my hood and fenders but all my other plastic
 
The same questions apply to the powder coating of plastic. Since plastics tend to be non-conductive, the electrostatic charge will not be transferred to ground, and the powder will tend to not stick to the plastic unless it is preheated. The softening point of the plastic will be the constraint on doing this. If it is an engineering plastic, it may take a 300°+ preheat and post heat. If it is a commercial molded product, it probably won't. I spoke with a coater a few days ago who is coating cast pewter parts. The pewter tends to melt at the standard 400° oven temp. Since the part was dense and solid, I guessed that it would not do any flexing after being coated, and the coater could get by on less than a full cure. He will try coating at 275° to 300°. The only down side is poor impact resistance, but he said that should not be a problem.

So, wood and plastic can be coated, but probably not with a standard procedure and cure schedule.

Glass should not be a problem as long as the coater can get the powder on the part. Armstrong Powder Coatings (since purchased by Morton) used to produce a flat black epoxy which was used on a Tequila bottle. One coater I know said he would put a "grounding rod" down the center of glass lamp bases to enhance electrostatic attraction. Others routinely spray hot to get the powder to adhere to the glass, then do a conventional cure. It may take two coats for complete coverage. After the first coat is applied and melted (not cured), it is easier to get the second coat to stick to the first.http://www.powdercoatingonline.com/html/powder_coaters_corner_20.html

i am pretty sure you say aluminum door panels there, and yes you can powder coat aluminum, it conducts electricity pretty darn good... i think joey was referring to these
 
Wattay, You will not be happy unless you have Tony paint them. But you do want your doors powder coated first then let Tony match the color. He has painted 8 of my vehicals including my Teryx this year & for once in my life I'm can say I love my painter. :D. My hood blow off my Teryx before the last M4SX race going down the raod @ 60MPH & it hardly scratched it. Sorry Tony, Now you must add the Flames to the race car.
