    If anybody is looking into powder coating,
    Perfect match is Alien Silver from prismatic powders, top coat is Transparent Dark Ruby Red from All Powder Paints

    That is one of the best ones I have seen so far that was powder coated. Looks great, if I pick up another bike I will be going this route, thanks for sharing info on the powders.

    I have powder coated orange, blue and ruby red so far.
    Everything gets a Alien Silver Base from Prismatic Powders
    All the Candy Colors was Found in Transparents at All Powder Paints

    Your bikes look great!! How much powder is needed to finish one? I’ve always painted, but may try the powder coated option.

    Less than a pound for the base and about the same on the clear.
