  • Any One want to give ADVICE?

    I am going to shoot these tomorrow in PBTP screaming eagle and these are some deep groves in the valve cover. Maybe just thrown the powder at the ribs Put my sifter over the top and let it fall Or let it heat up after I soot them and then put some back on the top warm/hot? And all the dag plastic thingies are off also and not going back on the customer said. Just make the BLACK. Already did his air cleaner and it looks great.

    Couldn't you just turn the kv's down on the gun? This is what I would try. I would worry about heating it up cause if the powder piles on top of the ridges then it would start to flow. If it was cold you could blow the build up off.

      I have a set of MT covers for a customer and they're identical to those. I was thinking about the same thing, how to get the powder down in there. I'll probably hit it warm since the rips are going to be polished anyway.

        Cheater! Polishing the ribs would solve the problem of build up. You guys will have to tell us what you did to get them done.

          Lets don't tell him NUTIN guys :

          The guy don't want no polish on his covers.

          He wants black and I have considered using a flat or lighter texture for shooting the rib area and then try to come back with e screaming one for the sides and maybe dead center?

          I don't know if any of you have shot the screaming eagle one yet? Its on the heavy side of texture and looks great? I am not sure but it might be one of the Harley ones? If these were mine then no problem but I don't have any thing with that deep of a rib to play with but I do have high temp flat back paint I will Get the dags things one damn way or another I bet

              You have to shoot under the flow temp so that the powder will just stick. If I would quit forgetting everything I was told and what I have done then I would be set DON"T GET OLD GUYS I think around 125/150 is when I have pulled stuff back out real quick and shoot some in the faraday effect areas? Never had a problem except on a set of wheels when my dag BRAIN took a friging break from the powder world and I paid for that screw up with extra work for sure Someone please correct me if wrong on the temp please.

                If your MT's are like the two sets that belong to me then there shouldn't be a problem with those. They are not deep and not even close to theses. Wait till you get or see a set then you brain will saw OH shT The only problem I have with my MT's is what I want to do with them and how I want them to look? I have a set I blasted months ago and still can't decide how I want the dag things


                PS I am going to go watch SIFI and forget powder for the evening! Where is my rum and coke? Its where the TV is I go now Where was I going

                      I have sprayed many of those valve covers. They acctually accept powder well. No need to pre heat. Degrease, blast, clean and coat.

                      Heres a set in chev Orange I did. Fins were polished forst, then I used a foam brush to wipe the powder off the fins before curing

                            ??? well the coating parts was no problem but the screaming eagle didn't scream? There is texture around the bottom of the cover and a see some in the rib area but the sides either turned out dull slick or look like a few places wanted to texture but didn't? I let them cool down to around 100 or less and shot them again and no change? The air cleaner top I did Fri turned out great. Any one got any idea? what went wrong? I am thinking of just shooting back over them with reg textured powder? just to get away from the slick part and I don't have enough of the SE to go at it again.

                              You probably put it on a little light would be my guess. Some texture/wrinkle powders need to be applied a bit thicker in order to get the proper effect. Just my 2 cents.
