I bought a new supercharger cover and my buddy took the old one and hydrocoated it. Check it out.

Lot of people don't know what hydro coating is.. theres some cool utube videos of someone wants to post it

#11 4 years ago

I just did me some googling and found there is a company over here in OZ that do hydro coating in a myriad of different textures, colours, designs, flavours (yeah ok, not flavours, just threw that in for bullshit factor ) on all kinds of different materials, plastic being one of them. I'm going to scrutinize this further with an extreme amount of scrute

It's not a simple process, primer coat, base coat, dip part in hydro tank with print of choice floating on top, wash it off, then cleat coat.

Very cool set up...

Well i scrutinized so much that i got mine done. I really liked the carbon fiber look but i also wanted to be a bit different so i went for this instead. This is the pic i was sent of the finished product, should be in the mail today hopefully and will post a pic of it attached

wow that looks kool, how much did that cost ?

Quoted from fast_in_muskoka:

It ended up being $167 shipped, that's OZ dollars of course and interstate (From a company in South Australia, a LONG way from where i am). Some would argue that's a lot and fair enough but i really feel it's worth it for the individualistic factor. I'm sure the purists would be going off their nut about doing something like this (as in, not keeping the machine stock). I'm considering doing the BOP head but it would be with a pattern that ties in with the machine ( a metal look of some sort)

I bought my kid a HydroDip kit for xmas a few years ago. I may order some Carbon Fibre print and do mine.

Do you know if the results from these are any good? It might be something to look into, IF the end product is good quality!

The quality is very good. I do all the priming and spraying and my kid does the dipping. He's only 12 but we've been dipping for a couple years. He went on a school field trip and seen an automotive shop that does hydro dipping and wouldn't leave me alone about it. mydipkit.com has everything you need. I buy primer and paint locally though mydipkit says its recommended to use their paints. We started dipping simple objects for practice. I bought some cheap travel mugs to practice on. If your going with carbon fibre print, it is by far the most popular film and sometimes sold out. There are quite a few other sites that sell film as well. Make sure you check them all out as some prints look much better then others especially if you want flames. I spay clear on everything we dip. Makes it pop.
Hope this helps.

Next up ... BoP helmets

I've got a spare helmet. What should we try

#28 4 years ago

Look what turned up in the mail today, i'm REALLY happy with it. I think it fits in quite well with the theme and ties in nicely with the play field colour scheme.
