Thank You Nate. I knew I asked the right guy.

The stuff you linked apparently is pretty straightforward and easy to use, so I'll use it and the SprayMax kit mentioned. Should give me a nice long-lasting and durable finish.

Also, by relaying this knowledge you have unwittingly opened new doors. I shall use this technique for all of my satin black finish needs instead of sending to the powdercoaters as I've always done in the past. Seems easier.

FTR...I don't trust powder coaters. They seem to be sloppy when it comes to process.

For steel car parts that have big bolt holes or parts like that.

If you've got a tight fitting part or threaded holes I'd not even consider it.

Not even that consideration. I can't tell you how many powdered parts that receive no care in handling, or attention to process. No phosphating, handling bare metal without gloves...there's even a guy down by the seacoast that cooks aluminum wheels in the oven @ 800 F to remove paint because it's faster than blasting. You're an engineer...what do you suppose that does to the crystalline structure?

When I worked in the fab shop I painted parts with threaded holes everywhere. Each hole was plugged before sandblasting, and plugs were removed before shipping.

Yes. Even when you tell them you want the parts beadblasted beforehand and the threaded holes plugged, and they nod their head or otherwise acknowledge your instruction, your stuff comes out with neither one of the aforementioned done. Even if you tell them twice!

Some people watch some YouPube videos talking about how "easy" powdercoating is then they go to HF, buy cheap equipment, get an old kitchen stove and call themselves a powdercoater and do subpar work convinced they are doing it right. Even the local classic car hotrod shops that are the go-tos are not what I would call professional grade. There was only one shop in the area here and they have moved on to govt contracting work and no longer do smaller jobs for individual customers. I'm always needing to make something satin black it seems, and I think I'll just paint now.

I have a set of wheels that were powdercoated black. Lay em down, and there's the wheel bearing laying on the ground when you pick it up.
They'll hold the bike off the ground, that is all.

The bulk of the parts powdercoated are low rent stuff, no knock on cheap stuff, it's cheap so there you go.
Modular fencing? Lawn furniture? Jackstands? Mailbox? Awesome, PC that shyt.
Airplane flap hinges, mmmm .... probably not
