Hey guys, I'm looking to finish up a small project car very very quickly, and I'm running out of time. I'm looking for a high-gloss black powdercoat service local to southern california, and I'm willing to drive the distance if someone has had great experience.

I'm currently living in Oceanside, and work in San Diego. I'm not afraid to drive to LA.

Can anyone recommend a good place that has quick turn-around? Money isn't as much of an issue as quality - they're 2-piece wheels, and would prefer the shop to do the tear down, and reassembly.

Thanks!
-Chris

Chris, most people in SD recommend US wheels out in El Cajon. It might be somewhat of a drive for you but it's worth checking out.

Let me know what you recommend. I am looking for someone that will do a hyperblack like on the G35s. Any dark silver, basically. If you can get a better group price, I'm in.

US WHEEL does NOT powdercoat. Valcano and Romeros do I think, they all in the same area - CLANTEE.

us wheel doesn't do coating, they are just expensive wheel repair facility, i have always repaired my own wheels and had Kels coating coat them, he charged me 50 bux a wheel and got it in 2-3 days or so. that was for a 18in wheel done in vulcan black. do not deal w/ RW little, takes them over 2 weeks to get ur stuff done and they charge ur 1st born for it.

GPM Engineering, whom I trust wholeheartedly trust, recommends North County Powdercoating. (760) 727 4121 and ask for Lauri. If anyone contacts them before me, please post feedback and ask about any group discounts. I am ready to do 4 wheels ASAP.

as it turns out, we're doing a bake-in paint since the wheel design (welded 2-piece) wont allow for disassembly to correctly powdercoat.

however, i may still get some work done in the future, so if jangy, or any of you other guys happen to get some work done first, let me know how it goes and i'll do the same! thanks for all the input and support all :D
