I stopped by my brother in-laws powder coating shop today to have some parts redone because of some scratches. I throw them in the blast cabinet to see if they were powder or paint. If you know anything about powder coat then you know that powder coat should not blast off. You have to use a chemical dip to remove it, at least if it is done correctly. The rear brake pedal stripped in the blast cabinet fairly easy but it was powder. The top triple blasted off very easily and was paint. The problem I have is they never prepped either part. Paint comes off quickly but you can see the layers as it comes off and there was a shiny layer under the paint. There was little to no prep done to the part before it was painted which explains why it was starting to chip. The brake pedal was just awful. Like I said, powder should not blast off. There was boot wear on it and I can see why. If you're experiencing any chipping of painted parts or wear on the powder coated parts it is because Victory cheaped out and didn't prep the parts correctly. I had my brother in-law powder coat parts for me 7 years ago and they still look brand new. I've helped him out in the past when he was really busy and once in a while he'd get parts back that he already powder coated because the customer wanted a different color. I tried blasting them and all it did was take the shine off the part, the powder wouldn't budge. If you plan on having any parts redone, check into the shop you're sending them to. If they don't do the proper prep you'll end up with the same problem all over again.
