Question Powdercoat Paint!!!!!!!!

I know some of youse here have Painted your machines with it. I have a Question or 2 for the masses at hand on this 1. Does it turn out to be a show room paint shine with it??????? you know does it shine just like a Cadillac Hearse?? and what is the going rate for some 1 to do all of the parts on said machine??? feel free to post up close pics of those jobs you have had done. so the masses at hand and even myself can have a really good looksee at the finished job. I got some stuff that needs to be painted or maybe have powdercoated. and I am pondering which road to travel down with.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

It will come out like paint whatever finish you choose. I had a bucket for a 32 inch ariens powdered for a customer for $100. Here is my 2 cents. Not all shops are pros at it. There are prepping things like zinc primer and blasting procedures that some skimp on. Its expensive compared to painting yourself. It was nice not having to sand,feather edge, prep a rusty chipped bucket. It's a tough finish but touch up can be tough to stick to it without sanding the finish. It will scratch like paint. Would I do it my blower. Probably not. What I would do is have the parts sand blasted if really bad. Rustoleum enamel paint if sprayed correctly can be one of the toughest DIY affordable methods I've ever used. And come out really nice. Tough to give an opinion what you should go with since we don't know the parts or the condition of it or how it will be used. I'm assuming its blower related.

YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I am going to have to tear "JR" Down and repaint him. when I painted him back in 2013. It did not turn out as I hoped and the primer I used was not the best stuff and was done at the time before I remodeled and heated the garage. The factory metal is still perfect. I just have not had the time to mess around with him. when I painted "SR" I used better primer and was done under better conditions, I painted him in the Basement of the house.

Here are a few pics of some powder-coated augers on an old Toro 421. I had a local shop media blast and powder-coat the augers, as well as just blast some other body parts. Those I just rattle can or roller painted red or black. The augers cost me around $30, and the misc blasting around $20 total. The shop works on my parts whenever they are doing other (priority) parts with the color I want. The guy is really reasonable that way, though it may take up to a month. It will be interesting to see how well the auger powder coating holds up.

The auger is powder-coated, the auger housing is painted (roller) and the handles are spray painted. And yeah, I should have done the impeller while I was in there.
