    Default Customized 1200's

    I was looking through some ebay postings for custom 1200's and came across a set that had been powder coated instead of painted.

    Anyone have any experience with having any gear powder coated?

    Yes. I have some 1200s' base frame powder coated. But I had that done because it served as primer coat to the one I usually paint. Much better than oridnary acrylic primer epoxy but costs double.

    What kind of cost roughly are we talking about?

    I saw a set on ebay that had the platters powder coated and wanted to do the same with mine, is that going to cause me any issues or is there something to look out for?

    Take them apart and take them to get powder coated, should run about $100.
    I powder coat stuff all the time, stuff lasts forever........

    Thanks for the info... yeah I just ordered a new tonearm and some leds... going to pick up a good set of RCA's and get them all refreshed while I get the chassis powder coated.

    I'm also thinking of doing the quarts lock disable to them while they're apart!

    I powder coated my decks and had an issue with one. One looks awesome and the powder coat is super strong. The issue I had with the other deck is that when I put it back together some of the parts didn't fit correctly and it caused the paint to chip. If you do it be careful of the buildup of the paint. In my opinion Car paint looks better and may be easier when putting it back together.

    hmm... thats something i was a little afraid of.

    Was the build up something you could have sanded down a bit to make fit?

    I was thinking of painting instead PC again because I just got a set of dicers and was thinking of having them painted at the same time i get the tables done.

    Anyone else with Powder Coat vs Paint thoughts?
