PostSubject: Don't Powdercoat your Gauge Panels!   Sat Mar 10, 2012 12:43 pm

Okay, I had my entire frame and all interior parts (except the steering wheel) powder-coated. My gauge panel was totally warped when I got it back. I thought someone at the powder-coater had stepped on it. I finally found a dash for sale in Canada and bought it. Sent it out for powder (same color) and it warped too! These things must've contained lead because they slump at 400F. Anyone know where I can get another gauge panel?

Do you need the stamped dashboard, or the potmetal cluster housing?

I have plenty of either available if needed.

he must be talking about the housing because it was an almost plastic like feel to it, the friction and heat of the sand blasting must have melted it
