Unknown Coatings - Ep 16 - Powder Coating glow in the dark wheels!
I know that this probably looks really cool in here in this pitch-black room but this video is to show you how ridiculous
powderreally is what's up everybody welcome back to the channel as you can see by the title of this video we're gonna be doing something a little ridiculous today I asked a bunch of you guys what I should do this demo wheel or one of the new demo
wheelsfor the booth this year I got a bunch of good suggestions I had a bunch of people suggest
darkI was pretty against it for a number of reasons that we kind of get to here in a minute but I decided I'm gonna go ahead and do it the reason I'm gonna do it is I want people who are thinking about
coatingor people that are gonna have parts
powdercoated or even other
powdercoaters that haven't used this product to see that it's pretty much a waste of money I've used it before on projects not automotive related I had one thing I did that was automotive related I think I did a valve cover for somebody in it one of the biggest issues that you're gonna run into with this product is it needs a bunch of light to charge it you know like any
darkthing we all remember as kids putting the stuff up to the lamp to get it to charge so when you get it to charge it does
glowwhich is awesome the biggest issue that I've seen with it is it it basically has to be pitch black to be able to see this which doesn't seem like a big deal except...
where it's pitch black there are no people to see it so I mean if you're out in the middle of nowhere I guess it's pitch black there's no city light no ambient light no light from anything you're gonna see it I guess what I'm gonna go ahead and do is we're gonna spray this demo wheel in a
darkwe're using a polar white as a base actually I think it's a choice white is a base not that it will really matter with
glowing yellow is just a transparent kind of antifreeze green that I use often is really close to shocker yellow which I think a lot of people are probably familiar with as well as
glowbe clear the
glowbe clear will of course be going with this it's the
glowing yellow technically has a
darkadditive it's basically the same as shocker yellow it just a night it seems like it reflects the color a little bit better so it probably has like some sort of
darkelement to it so we'll be going through this process right now hopefully to save you guys some hassle and time money assist me I mean if you want me to do it for you bring me your parts up happy to spray it anytime you want it's just for me it'd be a waste of money so I can't imagine it being a good idea to tell others to do it so we're gonna go through this process right now we're gonna get this wheel blasted this is a nosy that has some cracks on it that were welded and they...
cracked again I got it from one of my good customers so we're just going to use this demo and map it out right now again inspired see your flexion to the beautiful tres Oh you all right so that last clip that you just saw is this wheel so you buy this light for an hour and a half so the
darkjust doesn't work it's a bummer it would be awesome if it worked I mean it
glows some it shows up okay on camera it's not great obviously but the fact that you have to have a light like this with super high output softbox I mean put as much light on it as I possibly can for over an hour to get just a little bit of
glowyou can't get the color even you can't even get the light on it even you can see all the tops of everything where all the light was coming down at it is better that
glows better or whatever that would be so you know unfortunately the
darks is not gonna work hopefully this saves people the hassle you have to bother your
powdercoater if you're a
powdercoater you know not to even bother with it I've watched tons of videos online of people that say that it works and I've never seen results that are even decent so for other stuff I've used it for household stuff before and it works pretty well made like a light switch that made it
darkbasement at one point so that was pretty awesome but beyond that it's pretty much a waste alright guys that wraps up another video...
I want to give a big shout out to Justin's tan for printing the decal that's now in the back of the booth hit that like subscribe hit the notification bell so you get a heads up every time I post a video if you guys want to see any other Mia try any other
