I am not going to explain again the techniques of powder coating & its advantages. I am sure you already know. Instead I will focus on the company I use for many fancy projects. Since 1987, date at which Sumax founder Kirk Van Scoten bought his first powder gun, the company is not only still the leader in powder coating, but also excels in special projects and engine treatments. You know: the ones that we conceive at the shop and ask experts to produce, especially if nobody did it before. Meaning very challenging ideas that some would reject & colors that some would not touch. And at the game of custom powder coating, I can say without hesitation that Sumax (that some pro-builders call affectionately Zoomax) is a team of the most talented people you can find to resolve technical and paint issues, including working with difficult engine textures and special colors like candies.
