    After. Powder coating is oven baked to fuse the coating and the Frame Saver will probably melt off. The powder coating shop will not be amused either with the smell or with the Frame Saver dripping into their oven.

    If you get overspray on the frame after it's coated, it will clean off with kerosene without hurting the new paint.

    All oils and greases nned to be cleaned up inside and out as when the frame or part goes into the oven a little dab of oil or grease when heated will spread out alot and the powder coat paint will not adhear to the metal and will flake off easy
