Powder Coating Question.
I took my triple pipes off my GP 1200 earlier this winter and wanted to get them powder coated. I have seen some pipes on the hulk that have been powder coated and look really nice. Well, I went to a local powder coater and he said it was going to be hard and the cost was like close to 250 bucks blasting/ coating. What i wanted to know, who ever got their pipes coated, did they get them blasted or chemical dipped? And what was the price around? The more info the better. I felt that blasting would eat away at some of the pipe creating weak spots. Please help! If you wanted to post some pics of your powder coated pipes that would be cool.

I would go to them but it is a little too far to send the pipes. We would be talking at least prob 100.00 just to sent them. Any other suggestions?

I was looking at their color chrome and not the powder coating that they do for my tripple pipes.

Go to your local hardware store or automotive parts store and buy a good chemical paint stripper (or Walmart and buy the aircraft paint stripper in an aerosol can, automotive section), strip the pipes yourself. Then have them powder coated or better yet, polished. It may take a little time, but well worth the effort, and priceless when it comes to "eye appeal". You could take them to someone with a hot tank and have them dipped, just make sure the chemicals they use won't damage the aluminum. Most dippers, only dip engine blocks and cylinder heads, and they're made of high nickel content iron, not aluminum.

Klean Strip Pro sprayable is the stuff to use.

Those pipes look great! So does the waterbox! Did you polish them yourself or have someone else do it?
