    Hi, I've heard good things about fosters in Renton. They have a good reputation for repairing pranged wheels, but I don't know who they're powdercoater is. I do know that Chuck has one of their cards in the free pile at the meetings.
    Good luck!

      I've used American Powder Coating in Auburn. They coated my subframes, the door panels in my old blue car, my BWA wheels, and a number of other little parts. Their cash-and-carry prices are pretty reasonable.

      And they're just around the corner from a sand-blasting shop, so my wheels got cleaned up and coated in quick succession.

          Powder coat booth at Greenwood Car Show

          There was a booth at last year's Greenwood Car Show. I don't remember the name, but they had a very impressive assortment of examples of their capabilities on the table. If not to late for you timing, look for them there next month.

            Thanks George.

            Northwest Powder Coating quoted me $240 for the set which includes sand blasting.

            Bulldog Powder Coating had the next best price of $250.

              I've used Pacific Performance Coatings in Everett. Two 10" steel wheels, sandblasted and powdercoated, $50 for the pair.

                I picked up my wheels this past Monday from Powder Coating Systems in Tacoma. I have to say, considering the condition they were in when I dropped them off, they look better then I expected. Sorry I don’t have any close up before photo’s, I do have the after!!

                I was also informed I was under charged by $15, oh well, what's a girl to do? Pay what I was quoted!!

                    Really Sweet, Priscilla! This beauty almost makes you have to buy new lug nuts and center caps!

                    Looking forward to seeing them on your rag top,

                    Best regards,

                      When you have the tires mounted and balanced, ask them to use lead tape on the inner surface of the wheels. That way the nasty old lead weights arent' be visible.

                        those are gonna look so good! but i do wonder what the gloss would have looked like if that's semi-gloss.

                          Jerry,
                          I didn't see your post and yes the NASTY lead weights are visibile. Darn it!!

                          Dave,
                          Unfortunately there was a glare when I snapped my photo, they are semi gloss and yes the gloss they had was too shinny for me.

                            Lead weights! That's why Group 2 does any mounting and balancing of my mag-type wheels.
                            The more I know about Minis, the more I know I don't know about Minis.

                              Yeah, but you have to watch those guys at Group 2. I caught them trying to get away with putting no weights at all on one of my wheels. Even after I demanded weights they refused! Some outfit.
