    i wonder if he'd tell me my stock MS3 rims will need to be sandblasted....

    like what determines whether you should or not? i mean i'm curious what his decision is based on?

    That's a pretty good deal
    errr, i got mine chemically stripped/ powdercoated / clear coated for $250.

    The powdercoater is a member of the nissan240 forums , handle is "JEDI". Only thing is that his shop is in waterloo. Worth the drive to do it. I wasnt happy with them the first time around so he did them until i was.

    But my clearcoat doesn't have sparkles like that. Looks good garu!

    You can't powdercoat rims for a leased car rite? I really want to do it but I'm not 100% sure if I'm going to keep the car.

    Of course you can for a leased car. Just tell them that some punks spray painted your rims orange, or whatever you wanted to tell them, and that factory colour just wasn't your style, or whatever. As long as it's a quality job, and looks good.

    2006 Mazda 3 Sport GT 5 speed manual. Titanium Grey. Eibach Pro-Kit. TWN Shift Bushings. 13% Solar Gard HP Tint. Black painted brake calipers (Dupont brush on kit) Love stains in the back. New mod: replaced original Gt bumper with a new one without plate holes. Relocated plate. (Thanks raccoon!)

    I called the number this guy named Quy told me to come in and he'll do the whole set for $150.

    His office hours are 7:30 am to 3:30pm, but he said I can call him whenever I finish my work and he can drop by the shop for me. Very nice guy, he will try everything to take care of you. I asked him about the clear coating he said he would charge $250, if I'm doing the second coat.

    Anyways after 2 days, he told me they were ready, I picked them up, here is the result.

    Amazing result at amazing price. I highly recommend this guy if you want powder coating job done to your rims.

    He's located at Brampton near Main st & Bovaird. His cell phone number is 416-219-9463. Tell him Brandon sent you and you're part of the club, he'll give you a deal.

    I just did it today. I did an set of rims of (4) , 3 years ago too and the payment was reasonable ($450). Today I did only one rim (5 flat spoke) and I paid almost $300.00.. Very expensive for just one rim, beside that is really far way up almost to Caledon city. Be careful before you bring the rims there, you better ask first how much would it cost.

    Kind of dumb you didn't ask the price before going there. Setup is key so it's cheaper per rim to do 4 rims than it would be to do 1.

    Also kind of strange you are complaining about the distance even though you still went there lol.
