First 3 Piece Wheel Set

December 27, 2017


This blog will be a little bit shorter then normal. So I shot my first 3 piece wheel set during my first year of coating. The customer brought me the faces in for a simple flat black coating. The barrel was just going to be polished by him, but he wanted to do something different on the lips. 


After some consideration he landed on a sexy bronze color as you can see in the picture (although i cant remember the exact color name). Any who, having never shot just lips before i had no idea how much powder to order. In my infinite wisdom I guessed. I was very very close to being very very wrong. I ordered a half pound of powder and used every bit of it to get all 4 lips coated. 


In the end the customer was happy and i got away with a near miss. 


If you need your wheels done or just want them not to corrode any more give us a call.
