    Hey guys,

    I am restoring a 1973 porsche 914. I have never powdercoated, nor do i plan on starting. I found some local shop, and the guy wants to help me on the side. So i dropped off a brand new bursch exhaust, gloss black, totall krap paint. It usually is gone after a month of running the car. So I decided to make this one last. The guy tells me he will blast it and apply a high temp powder. He mentioned the powder is good up to 1600 degrees. It was picked up yesterday, and it looks awesome.

    Now…..

    One hour after driving the car, and a smell that i was hoping would go away. It seems that all of the paint has cooked off the thing:(
    WTF soooo. i will call the guy tommorow. What happend???

    Here is a before and after pic … i dont have a yuck pick because it is dark out right now. I could post in the morning.

    I am totally bummed

    The black one is factory paint (no good)
    The grey one is High temp powder (i got ripped off?)
