DeadStroke's Engine Parts

Forum Member Deadstroke contacted me about coating his engine parts. I'm really excited about this project and since my albums are practically full, I thought I'd document the process from beginning to end......

Pictures attached are of all the items to be coated after being de-greased and ready to be taped off before heading to the Media cabinet.......

Made quite a bit of headway today, but MAN am I TIRED of taping off parts!!! LOL....Most folks think that powder coating is just shooting some powder and then it bakes & magically pretty stuff comes outta the easy bake oven.......well, the main reason for this thread is to show the entire process. With any parts as this engine project, any surface that comes into contact with a gasket I feel should be undisturbed (some powder everything....I think it needs to be taped off).....The following are a few pics of some parts taped off before the parts go into the Media Cabinet for blasting....

Several items out of the media cabinet and protective tape removed. Now heading to the oven for a process called "Gassing Out"..... gets any impurities out of the pours of the metal. 2nd pic is the Rocker tops & bases taped off & ready for the Media Cabinet.

Top Tranny Plate showing final tape lines after heat resistant tape is removed (again - a lot of coaters just blast & shoot......I think some extra time should be taken to do it properly).
