How much thickness the powder coat adds to the part?

Depending on the process and applicator but thickness could range from .002" and all the way up to .010" (or more). There are ISO/ASTM standards but it applies for aerospace/defense industries. If done properly, thickness should be around .002-.003 (or so) and will provide a nice durable coat for cosmetic and protection purposes.

Any threads and bearing surfaces should be taped-up prior to PC.

Powder coat looks nice and even.. factory quality!

Do you still do bike detailing, or will you be focusing more on painting full time?

Hey Mr Todd.  I will hopefully have a metal piece going to use for a passenger seat rack that I'd like to powdercoat.  Will message you or let me know if you have time or if I can buy material and bring to you
