So i assume you are not doing 5 layers of primer and 3 coats of frame paint on this

Re: The Doc & Kim 69 build

put some powder on them baked and not bad for my first shot at this . I can't believe I bought this PC kit in 2011 (the receipt from Eastwood was in the box ) and bought the oven around the same time just never had time to try it, more fun to come......

Re: The Doc & Kim 69 build

Jess, nice work!

been thinking of doing that, but the wifey won't let me near her new kitchen with my greasy, rusty truck parts....

guess I'll have to buy a oven for the basement, does it put off fumes when you PC

is there a setting on the thermometer for powder coating. lol

you cant do this and cook in that oven I know you know that! she wouldn't have it anyway....some fumes not anything crazy I think you would be fine in your work space ...more powder dust left behind than anything else... my 70s era avocado over under didn't come with a setting for baking........on enamel LOL there is a rotisserie in the upper oven that works along with the oven light its a Gem directions say 400 degrees the powder started to flow at about 350 after just 5-10 minutes left them in for about 20 cooled about 20and ready to go ....like anything else its all in the prepby the way i have a couple of fenders that are not, in my opinion, worth fixing they are yours if you want them can meet half way if you want to use for fitment purposes with the hood ...I been peeking in at your thread

I think it would look great I just clear coated my spindles so the are natural cast. But you could do a light or medium gray and it would contrast well, what color are you painting the body ?
