    Powdercoating a head

    Thought I'd share a picture before I installed it back on the ski. While I had the head off, I had a local company sandblast and powdercoat the head. For high heat applications, I had only 2 choices; black or silver. I thought it turned out well.

    Yeah, I was impressed with the work, the company is run by some Austrailian guy... Thought about going for some brighter colors, but figured I'd stick with the high-heat stuff.

    Looks great to me, and going with the high heat tolerance was the smart move as well.

    'Just a thought regarding the head bolt area; you may want to sand down the bolt area. The layer of powder will compress when you torque the head, giving an inaccurate reading.
