Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Masking a tank for powder coating?

I was wondering if anyone knows if you can mask an area of a bike for powder coating? I have a Schwinn Cruiser that I would like to powder coat but would like to retain having two colors on the tank



From what I've read it is very hard to paint over powder coats so I was wondering if there is a way to mask out the white area on the tank so that it can be liquid painted after the bike has been powder coated?

Thanks!

yes. there's a high temp tape that can be used when powdercoating.

Thanks Potus. It seems that would be my best method to getting a two color tank.

I'd talk to the powdercoaters before you do anything. I'm not sure if you mask the area before or after media blasting.
