I know people that have like 2 or 3 little overs and does small parts all day.. Would be sick if psi offered something like this for motors just not sure if you can bake them or not..
You can tape the magnet off with powder coating tape that can with stand the heat spray top and bottom plate ANY color you can think of even over chrome to get a candy chrome..
This is one of the bikes we did the frame, wheels parts of the motor, etc to give you an idea..
BTW you only bake it from around 350 to 450 so any oven works some powder works better at different temps but nothing higher then 450.. You want an even heat..
any powder come with it?
I had some red lft like was on the bike above.. Powder you can get rather cheap though, a box of it might be $100 to $150 and that did 4 bikes like the one above.. Plus if you don't keep powder cool and low humidity it will go bad.. Not good for the system so we ordered it when needed to be sure it was just right.
Going to upload some photos to give you some better ideas..
Some work we did with this system:
two tone yellow/black
candy blue over chrome to get candy color.
Chopper rim set we were doing, front rim show
All the white and purple on the metal we did. 1000RR bike for csc here in Orlando.
