    I’m working on Mickey Thompson valve covers and an Edelbrock intake for a Chevy Malibu. The guy wants them in Chevy orange. I prepped them good (degreased, chemical strip, and then media blasted). I like to never got the powder to stick to the valve covers. My booth is literally grounded to a ground rod right outside the building. I had degassed the parts since they were aluminum and left two parts in the warm oven. My powder was old and I think maybe the static properties were weak. My shop was cool inside also (in the 30’s outside). To make a long story short, I took the warm piece out of the oven and it went on good. After they were cured the powder is a little thin in spots but otherwise looks great. I guess I can just put another coat right over the first coat? I’m just wondering if I should warm the parts in the oven to help the powder to stick again? I haven’t ran into so much trouble in a while. Just have questions and sharing the frustrating moments… 😀
