RX-7 and I are interested in getting our rims powdercoated.

Him in white, me in "hyperblack".

I'm just gauging the interest in forming a groupbuy for this. I will be phoning Panther's in Surrey (I think that's where they are), and Green's in Richmond for quotes.

Let me know if you guys are interested at all.

UPDATE:

A friend of mine called Panther's in Surrey, and the advice Panther's gave was that "powdercoating is not recommended because it weakens the wheel".

Therefore, I'm going to find out about painting them instead.

The quote my friend got was around $125 per rim for painting (he has a Volvo)....hence, I think if we can get a few more people, it will be cheaper.

power coat will not weaken the rims

panther and green don't do powercoat.......they just paint that's why they say don't power coat.

mind you it's $125/rim PLUS mount and unmount the tires......

also unless you have another set of rims to use, check out the down time and find yourself 4 jackstands before doing it.
