Tonight I dropped the chassis off to Colour Tech Powdercoating, its almost a bigger milestone than it was to get it running, why?
Whenever exposed steel is open to the elements its prone to rust, what is rust? Rust is that ugly red covering formed by the reaction of iron and oxygen in the presence of the moisture in the air, not only that but also the oil in your skin will make any raw steel surface rust.
Every 3 or so months I strip everything down, wash the chassis in thinners and recoat it in a drying lanolin oil. This keeps the rust away and the finish bright. Divide 30 months by three and thats a lot of work that I will never have to do again.
Can you imagine the entire chassis looking like my BMX frame? Well ill show you tommorow night.
Stay tuned we are about to get coated!
