I just ordered a powdercoating kit, so if you guys want any small items powder coated let me know. I of course will not do this until I get my pieces done so I have somewhat of an idea what I am doing. Small parts, going to be using a toaster oven at first. Maybe buy a junk oven in the summer and do some larger pieces, but we will see how it goes.

Sounds good, hopefully by then I will have some experience under my belt and be able to do some pretty good stuff. ~10 sq ft of powder is only around $9. So after the initial investment, not that bad.

The past year has been a rough one,hoping 2013 will be better.The list of things I want to do to the GTO is long......time and money will decide how much gets done though.


The debate to roll or cut will go on forever.My fenders are untouched but if I had to,I would cut them.........might have to with the 275/60/15 drag radials I want


Do you have any new mods planned for your car?

Mods, not really. I just want to do more with it......more shows, perhaps a GMHTP LSX event or the Power Show. Work will always be there, I have to to take vacation and MAKE plans to do these things or I will never do them.

I have a propane oven I just took out of the kitchen and replaced with electric. You could easily to set it up to work off a propane canister from a grill. If your interested it is yours. Its just sitting in my garage.

I may have to think about this... How big is it both inside and outside dimensions. Any idea how long it can sustain a 400-450 degree temps, and how consistant is it? I had been thinking about buying a cheap $50 oven on craigslist and just wheeling it in the kitchen when ready to do PC cure. Shoot me some pics.

Will I be able to stick an 18" wheel inside the oven???

Saw a blue Maloo (yes, you read that right) turning onto the I-80 eastbound ramp @ the Stuart exit this morning. I was too slow in getting the phone out for a photo.

Wait 'til Mustang owners look under the hood of your 'stang and see that it is powered by a Chevy(with PONTIAC valve covers)......you won't be making any friends there either LOL!!!

I can't wait to see the GTO and the 'stange on the road and at the track

Mine is now in storage for the winter
