Default Powder coating

Since I've been working on the so so fun project of replacing the oil pan gasket and timing chain cover gasket on my project 2000 Monte I figured since I have it all tore apart I might as well spray some powder on it when I need a break from wrenching. She has a long way to go but it's a start. I'll redo the wheels this week as I'm trred of the gloss black then same blue on the plenum,second part of torqyr mount, and wrinkle black on the valve covers.

I've heard you don't wanna put powder in an oven you use for food, make sure you look into it!

Ya you don't want to cook your parts and dinner at once. You can pick up used ovens for nothing though. That's how I started and taught myself with YouTube and alot of trial and error. I'm hoping to get the subframe done tomorrow, then valve covers, plenum, and intake coated next week if I can make time

Finally got the subframe powdered up. Now just have to install it. Next up the intake manifold, plenum, valve covers, and probably will change my wheel color too

Nicely done! That subframe is certainly a BIG piece to powder coat!

Its ackward as hell, luckily I have racks to roll it to and from oven with. Having to carry it would not be fun. Now if I could get it in that would be great. The motor somehow twisted on me and I'm having a hard time getting it back in place by myself.

Been a minute but finally got some time to get some personal work done. Intake and valve covers today and will get the plenum done tomorrow. Then the wheels in a black and blue two tone. And I still have to put it back together lol.
