Re: Exhaust tip question

I use ceramic from NIC and have had good luck with it. I only use glacier black. I don't offer other colors unless the customer is willing to purchase all of the ceramic. I never seem to use it all when someone wants a one off color and it doesn't stay good for more than 6 months to a year.

Re: Exhaust tip question

I would use ceramic on Diesel stacks. I've done a few of them. We took IR readings before hand. Just driving around town it got super hot 500* plus. I can't imagine how hot it would get when towing.

Re: Dormant Blue

Everytime I've used Illusion Royal it has a purple/violet tint to it.

Re: Dormant Blue

Illusion Royal has some purple to it. I believe this is the same as the old dormant blue.

Re: Apex Custom Coating Gallery

That's quite the timely transformation! I usually end up charging too little on those jobs but I sure am happy to see the final product.

Re: What Media Are You Using And From Who?

I use a mix of sharp shot(copper slag) and green diamond. I buy it locally from company that sells a ton of different blasting products. I think sharpshot is $10.00 per 100lb bag. The green diamond is $25.00 for 500lbs.

Re: Hanging wheels?

I use wire through a small washer then feed that through the valve stem hole. People will wonder how you hang them because everything will be coated with zero bare spots. Make sure you get a few different sizes of washers. Valve stem hole sizes vary.

Re: Dead Spectracoat ES02 / ES03

I have an es02 with faraday. It works intermittently. Fine for clear. Terrible for heavier metallic powders.
