I have simulators on my 5A but have been thinking about having the wheels powder coated. Anybody done this?  Cost?

Powder is the ONLY way to go!!!!!!! I do allot of metal work (sculpture, architectural metal, Hot Rods) and I use powder coating EVERY chace I can!! It's great and lasts a l-o-n-g time. If you were going to have someone paint your wheels for you, powder would not be much more expensive...if at all. But if you're doing it yourself, well.........
  Powder coaters vary in what they charge. The powder is cheap, but their labor- and how proud they are of it- is where it costs.
  But my suggestion is if you want paint, use powder. Plus they have virtually every color imaginable right down to "candy's" and "pearl's".

    Always colorful                (I'm told)
