    I just wanted to start a post saying I've start powder coating my upgrade armor and parts at my shop now. I had a local company do it for years, but lately they were getting busier and busier so my turn around times were long. Now, I'm doing it in house I have a lot faster turn around time on my orders and customized Pinball Refinery edition machines.

    I'll post some pictures on some of the powder coating jobs that I've done on this thread...

    Thank you to everyone that has ordered my products over the years. I will continue to do what I can for everyone that would like my products.

    Are prices dropping now that you do not have to pay someone else to do it?

    #5 3 months ago

    Rates are competitive and I'll do an exchange program on un-needed armor as well. I've done this for years but this isn't advertised it on my website.

    Yes. I can get it very close to matching it up. But I buy my legs in sets of 4. If I sell you 1 I'll have 3 left. Send me a PM so we can figure this out for you.

    This might be the best looking game I have ever seen. Looks great.

    Remember that TWD premium you did with the light green armor? I am pretty sure it was a 1 time color you did for TPF. Nicest TWD I have ever seen.

    Thanks Woody. My customer wasn't too sure on this powder coating color, but I assured him it would look great on it and I feel it does. He is very happy with how it turned out.

    Yes I remember that Walking Dead Premium. It was a oops color but looked bitchin.

    Actually I'm on a little vacation right now with my wife in your neck of the woods. (KY and TN). We were in Nashville today. It has been perfect weather this week.

    Steve, I'm going to want some of that Root Beer action on my Maiden Premium and some of that black sparkle on my Batman 66, hopefully we can do another 2-pack right around the end of the year or start of 2020. Just beautiful powder coats.

    No Problem, just PM me when you're ready to place your order and I'll hook you up.

    Thank you for the kind words and yes they are Awesome looking when insided.
