Hey all does anyone know of a good local powder coating shop in the Vancouer/Portland area?

I am thinking of getting my stock wheels powder coated or painted anyone have any suggestions?

There is a place that always advertises on Craigslist in the auto parts section. They say that they will do them for $200 a set and they have many finished product photos that look great. Search the auto parts section for powder coat.

Call Advanced Metals 503-491-1415 . Ask for Scott and tell him Lance from Columbia Body sent you . You will need to take tires off and strip the paint off though but they might strip the paint now though .

Here is the ad. http://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/pts/1038728466.html

Hey I know the dude who posted that.. I had him do my WRX wheels black w/ a flake to match STI black wing... He is awesome. He did all 4 wheels for me for $120.00. He can do pretty much any colour combo & the more stuff you take him, the cheaper it gets... With that being said, Ive been looking for his PH# for awhile not & i'm going to call him up. I'm going to prob do my stock wheels a dark charcol almost black w/ red flake if anyone is interested in doing their wheels same dark colour he may give us a break =} Let me know!

that craigslist ad is from forest grove? i have not seen a shop out here that would do powder coating. then again i havent been looking.
[/quote] He has a large house w/ a niec shop on the side. Its not a 'real' shop thats probably why you havnt seen it. I highly recommend him though. =}

Im probably going to give him a call tomorrow & see if he's down to do it this weekend- I have Wed & Sunday off So i'd be dismounting my wheels prob Wed. Im off work at like 4 or 5 Saturday- So prob drop them off to him then if hes available. If you want to look into it/go with me let me know. Graphite might be simular to what I'm looking to do too.. He has, no joke, thousands of colour samples and finishs to pick from..

I have a set of wheels already dismounted and ready to powder coat.

If you can get a significantly better price for 2 sets, I'm down to go in on it with you.

Hey Cherylynn when you give him a call could u see if he could give us a deal....;).

I would like to roll out there with ya and see his shop and some of the color choices he has. I work swing shift at the airport so I could either do it in the morning on one of your days off or do it on one of my days off.

So looks like maybe 3 or 4 sets for him.. He'll prob give us a good price w/ that quanity. Ill call tomorrow, ask & let everyone know. Since ive had stuff done thru him before + new biz incoming I dont see why he wouldnt give us a good deal =}

BTW. My normal schedule w/ work is Mon-Fri 11.30AM-8.30PM w/ Sats & Suns off. But this week I have Wed & Sunday off & working till 4.30PM Saturday-
With that said for anyone wanting to roll out w/ me. I'm prob going to go pick out colours/maybe pay Jamie Wed if he has time. & drop off wheels Sat or Sunday. If others want to go Wed sometime & pick out colours etc. I can always take ur wheels w/ me when I drop mine off etc.

We'll figure it out after I call dude tomorrow morning & see what his schedule is looking like.
