Powder Coated Gas Tank

Wanted to share some pics of a gas tank I powder coated. I wish the pictures did it justice, in person, it looks like nothing I have seen before, very happy with it. It is bare steel with a sort of random brush pattern and then powder coated with 2 coats of clear. I know the finish wont last as long as a blasted part, but sometimes you gotta make sacrifices, in this case its form over function.

It was actually looking good. Powder coating can be applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Its coating gives a perfect finish to the metal. Read more about the exclusive decorative wood grain powder coating system for metal, glass, etc.

Not so sure i would click that link since it was the responders first post!

Very cool I will be interested to see hot holds up on our humid climate. I wanted to do this before but got talked out of it as my coater said it will rust under the clear. I dig it. Reminds me of the Harley Davidson and Marlboro man FXR.......

Thanks, the gas tank lives in FL, I did it for a friend of mine but I haven't been in touch with him for a while to see how it has held up so far. I did 2 coats of clear, the 2nd coat was to help seal up any bare areas that may have been missed in the first coat. I did some do some test pieces a long time ago, just some angle iron pieces that were bare metal with clear on top. Still no rust to this day and the pieces live in my non-climate controlled garage. There is a sacrifice with adhesion because the bare metal is not blasted, but it was a chance he wanted to take for the look he wanted.

As a full time coater I coat over cleaned chrome and polished aluminum all the time and it holds up fine. The down side is it might chip easier but have never had any my customers say they had any problems even after new tires were installed.

Why would nice clean metal rust with a clear on it??? And you put two coats so that is even more sealing. When doing second coats always cure the first on like 75% and apply second and fully cure. You get a better bond between the two. But if you use a chrome powder then it has to be fully cured before you use a clear or candy and that is the only one.
