Hi all. I am looking for a shop to powder coat a set of wheels for my 122S wagon to approximate as much as possible the original finish. I am hoping that this will be more durable than simply sandblasting and painting. I am located in Connecticut.

Does anyone have experience with powder coating vs. painting?

Welcome to the Forum, Don.

Indeed, I have refinished a goodly number of Amazon wheels but powder coating was high science at the time.

My experiences with super-hard finishes in a spray can tell me that the wheels look great until you mount the tire with a power mounter. Not sure if powder coat is immune to scratches.

On my '68 Amazon wagon (now gone) the wheels had the OE accessory chrome beauty ring and the OE hubcap which left very little wheel visible.

ipd markets a wheel paint near the correct wheel color and your local auto parts house has it also.

Contact these folks...

...for some ideas on wheel finishes, repair, prices, etc.

Please let us know what you decide so we can admire your new wheels.

Thanks.
