    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!

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

    here's the tape:

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