Question on coverage

I have some small parts I want to powder and I want to try it myself.
Will powder fill in small scratches or pits in metal?

Can you powder a large part 1 section at a time? I'm looking at the eastwood with a heat lamp and it says the lamp covers 10". A few of the things are longer than that (exhaust support on my 71 ironhead for example)

I would powder coat prime, block sand, then apply color.
not familiar with using a heat lamp, may want to try asking that question here The Powder Coating Forum

Not much on that forum.

I take it that you can powder coat over powder.

Actually I would never recommend using JB weld for anything let alone as a filler! If it is a scratch I would actually coat it with 3 to 4 mills, sand it smooth and shoot again that scratch will be long gone.............a gash is another thing but I can tell you this I took a 59 GMC truck front bumper that looked like a Motocross track and Coated it with 4 mills, block sand it and shot it again and blocked it again and shot it 1 more time and I was shocked at how flat it was. Now the Orange peel was a bit more then I would have liked but all in all it looked pretty good!

Covering 10" with powder coating does not sound practical possible to achieve uniform surface . for covering 10" pit you can follow this process, fill it with epoxy putty then dry it off and rub it with sandpaper and level it. then now coat your component.
