www.racecoated.com/Colors.htm <--Samples of the colors

Looking for a color not listed? We can get it for an additional $10 to $25 depending on how much is needed and the color. Email or PM me about the custom color and we'll get it.

Ideas of what can be powdercoated:
Suspension Components
Calipers
Valve Covers
Alternator Housing
Intake and Intercooler Pipes (no longer than 24")
Misc Brackets
Bolts/fittings
etc... (Basically anything made of metal...anything)

Pricing: This is determined on a one by one basis, below I've listed the most common parts and where prices start at.

Valve Covers: $50 per cover
Calipers: *$100 to $150 a pair depending on the units
Intakes & Turbo piping: *$15 a foot
Wheels: Currently NOT doing wheels

*Prices do not include shipping or core charges. All valve covers require a core return unless you're sending me a cover to coat with no concern of downtime. Meaning, you have to send me your stock valve cover in the same great condition that I'm sending yours out. Core swaps are done cover for cover meaning if you're sending me a K20a2 cover, that's the cover I'm sending you. If it's not deemed the same quality (bad gauges or scratches) then you will not be refunded the core charge. If you're not sure, email me pics first.

Core Charge: What is a core charge? It's the price/value of the valve cover. Since I'm only trying to offer my powder coating services, I buy a few valve covers in anticipation of having your stock one returned to me once you install the newly coated one. This reduces my turnaround time and lowers your cost.

Conditions for Core Charge: The valve cover MUST be in the same great condition that the cover is when I send it to you. It must also be the EXACT same cover that was sent out to you. If there are deep scratches or gouges that must be repaired, then the amount of the refunded core chage goes down. If I find the VC to be unusable, then no refund will be offerend and you must send $15 to cover the shipping of the VC back to you or after 5 business days it becomes the property of RaceCoated. It may sound harsh, but as long as you talk to me and take pictures if you're unsure, everything will be fine.

Currently, it's taking upwards of 3 weeks to a month for EP3, CTR and ITR covers due to core swaps coming back slowly and not at all. So the core charge for the "HONDA" covers are now $75 and a2 covers are $60.

If I have a core instock, should only take 3 to 10 business days.

I'd like to, but I'm so busy doing valve covers from everyone else, that I just don't have time.

That and shipping wheels would be insane. People could buy new wheels after they ship them to me, I coat them and then ship them back.

Too much money.

Working on adding more sample colors to the site and finishing up a couple of orders. Also working out the plans for a larger oven and media blaster to accomodate IC Piping, strut bars and possibly wheels. (They'll fit, but I'm not sure I'll be doing them.)
