    Two sets of five steel wheels 15" X 10". They were stripped, zinc washed which is an important process to help adhesion and protection. £40 each wheel. One set black and another blue.

    Aluminium steering guard, same process as above £40.

    Aluminium Patriot roof rack £80.

    Loads of bits and pieces ranging from £10 upwards. Triumph centre stand, speedo surround, chequer plate wing tops, rear swing away wheel carrier etc. etc.

    Prices, ability and quality will vary from region to region and be dependent on process (if they zinc wash or you want the wash process) and colour wanted? If they do not have stock and need to 'buy in' the powder it will naturally cost more. Also if they have an order 'on the go' you like the colour of it can work out cheaper too.

    Best I found is to go on a recommendation from someone who has had it done locally.

    That's a great price Cornish,

    Did you get them done locally?

    Sorry for the dumb question...but can you powdercoat on chrome.....my guess is,no.

    I would love to get my rack and a few chrome bits powdercoated in black.

    Hi Zeke,

    There's no such thing as a dumb question on this forum.

    It can be done, it depends how skilled the powdercoater is, not all powdercoaters are created equal. The powder initially adheres to the metal using an electrostatic charge, chrome isn't as good at conducting electricity as steel, therefore if it was me I'd have the chrome either stripped by a metal finishers using the reverse process to chroming, or have the chrome bead blasted off to give a rough key for the powder to adhere to.

    Why not ask your local powdercoater if they can coat over chrome, they should be able to give you an honest reply.
