Yellow Mach 1 is back again!
#61
Fabrice - i powder coated a bunch of my brackets and suspension parts when I restored my '71. Most parts were sandblasted clean, then treated with POR 15's Metal Ready for a phosphate coating. I used powder from Morton, a low gloss black and a textured black. All parts were single coat and cured in an industrial powder oven we had at work at whatever the recommended temp was. This was in 2002 ~ 2003. Parts still look great with no rust showing through and little if any chipping.

Thx for clarifying, very interesting. The kind of answers you don't get in the "look how easy" promotion vids.
My little finger tells me you had to go thru some trial&error before get where you are now.
The parts you did look awesome.

Yes, that's pretty much the process the company that I've called for a quote told me for my 429 hooker headers . Just like plating, the costs are all about the prep and not really into the material costs. These headers are expensive in the USA and even more once at my door if I would order new ones. So its worth it.
They are too big for a home solution anyway, but for smaller parts I'd love to try this myself.

I need a much much bigger garage...

Regular powder coat will not hold up on headers. I have my coated on the outside with CeraKote (Ceramic Coating) and InsulKote on the inside. Keeps heat in the engine compartment way down.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

I recall you mention that in a reply. I did ask for heat resistant coating and they had only one black solution for this. Not even sure the one they proposed was really suitable or just the only one they had in house. I want contact more companies anyway. 
I surely keep that in mind.

Thanks. Yes it was a lot of trial and error! Lot more error than I like to admit!! But I have it down pretty good now. 
Don’t we all need a bigger garage?? I know I do!!

Nice job! I see you're using the aluminum foil 'trick' described in another post.

You've been a busy bunny today!! The owner is going to be very happy with the new look, as well he should be. And, if I remember without going back, you were not going to pull the motor, just spiff up what you could. Good call to pull it.
Now d'ya feel like coming by my place a doing mine??
What clutch did you end up choosing? it is a long finger by the look of it.
