Anyone in Wichita with blast cabinet?
« on: January 24, 2017, 05:40:34 PM »
Need a blast cabinet large enough to blast a 2 piece 4 into 1 street bike exhaust system. Then I'll have to decide on a finish product, any recommendations on either? Thinking I'd like to finish it in a silver of some type, its old and pitted so chrome or other fine finishes not really a good idea...

First I'll need to have a dent in one of the head pipes repaired, probably find someone to cut out and replace the flat spot, that seems to be the general consensus on proper repair technique for this type of damage.

Ceracote is an awesome coating.  Not sure how much it costs but there are a couple of applicators in Wichita.

I did chat with FTW Coatings, he is mainly a gun guy but claims he can prep and coat but I thought it was a bit high at around $250!! Also, he said it is an air dry application which surprised me but said it goes on pretty thin, not sure how much of the pitting may show through? I could probably send it to Jet-Hot for that price? Just trying to sort out and weigh my options I reckon... Thanks for the input sir!

It looks like I'm gonna take it to Joplin to Performance Coatings Plus, good price and they do great work, all prep included...

After watching the video below I've decided how unimportant repairing that dent in the header is!! This video blew me away! So hopefully I will be taking the pipe to them Saturday for an overhaul... I will also post a picture of an example of their finish I'm going for....
