I am looking to purchase the Rokmen tummy tuck and want to have it powdercoated. Anyone have a good reference.

I live in Auburn, WA.

I would go with the powdercoat. I don't know of any place near Auburn but if you get desperate enough to drive I know a place over here in Everett.

There's two places near me, one is Ken's Powedrcoating:
20104 78th Ave E
Spanaway, WA
253-847-9431.

Another is a place near the Boeing Factory in the Fredrickson area, on Canyon Road:

Perfection Powder Coating
5402 184th St E
Puyallup, WA, 98375

(it's in a little industrial park, east side of Canyon Rd)
875-0010

I have heard of POR-15 but never used it. I will do some research on that option. I heard more people using that for frames.

Not a fan of powdercoat myself. Personally I would paint it myself in POR-15 and follow that up with good old black spray paint. This will inhibit rust far, far better than powdercoat!

It's great for that, but you still need a good top coat of something for UV protection... If you do go with Por-15, don't forget a paint of some kind over the top.

Best of Luck,

American powder coating in Auburn Wa.

3802 b street NW.

I used them for years when I was building motor cycle stuff. Good quality to price ratio. They are right down by Gitts springs in that industrial area on 37th at the end of the runway.

Yup! Mike is right about that. UV light will change the color of it, other than that it won't harm it. Simple spray paint will surrfice as a topcoat. And your right they market it a lot for frame restoration... but once you use it, you will find a million uses for it, and it can be applied to anything darn near, including preped concrete floors.

Whoa there buddy-Hijack alert!!! Prepped concrete floors? Would you recommend doing a full 3-car garage with the stuff? I have ONE container of a "seal crete" or something-pewter color that you sprinkle flakes over if you want and/or add non-skid too (already in the kit) but will need 2, maybe 3 more for the whole floor. Only thing in the garage will be car/Jeep/trailer-or four wheeler, so no scuff items or anything... My Dad did his whole huge new shop with this stuff and it looks really good but I don't know if the "shop" was the best place for it-thinking a garage might be OK though. If the Por-15 would be better, I'm all ears...

Hijack off... :laugh:

Best of Luck,

Mike

:laugh: Mike I just read where it can be used for it and I think they might even make a special version for it. But IF I remember correctly they spawned their concrete version from testimonials of people using the original version for concrete. Here is their special version I have heard what you were thinking about is great also!! I don't think you could go wrong either way. BTW... Line-X has an application also, but I bet it is $$$ but worth it. Honestly the thought of me prepping any concrete for paint sounds like a major PITA.
