Powdercoating a hood latch


Post by 69XRRR7 » 08 Dec 2017, 20:20

Has anyone had the hood latch mechanism on there car powdercoated? I am concerned about the moving parts and if they would be affected by the powdercoating. I want to do the latch assembly on the 69. Any input would be appreciated.

I powder coated the hood latch assembly on my 69 also and absolutely no problems. Harbor Freight powder coating setup and an old used oven is all one needs. I purchase all my powders from Columbia Coating.

Powder coated almost all of my front end parts to my headlight assembly, no problems at all. Including my hood latch as well..
