We had a lady from Northern Utah call us about her patio furniture. She had acquired several different pieces of outdoor furniture. They were random in colors & styles, and didn’t match; but she loved the unique design of each piece of furniture, and wanted to turn them into something more.
She was very particular about the color, because she was color matching against the trim on her house. With over 65,000 colors and textures to choose from, we at Full Blown Coatings, were able to color match our Tundra Green with her house trim exactly. She was thrilled that she could keep each piece of patio furniture, that not only match each other, but now match her house perfectly.
Full Blown Coatings sand blasted, powder coated, & transformed her sun-faded, worn-out, furniture, into a beautiful, complimentary patio set.

Unique Possibilities of Powder Coating

A customer of ours takes his jeep rock crawling in Moab, and wanted a unique custom roll cage,… something different that isn’t seen very often, that would also match his jeep. He special ordered an unassembled roll cage, and did all his own welding.
Full Blown Coatings was able to complete the finishing touch,.. powder coating it Black Frost with a Lollipop Red top coat. The Frost is a vein, which separates into a black & silver when it’s baked. The Lollipop Red is laid over it, turning a silver-red and leaving the black showing through. This custom roll cage was left with a TOUGH textured look and a high gloss finish.

Three-Tone Powdered Coated Wheels

posted in: Powder Coating In Utah | 0
A friend of Full Blown Coatings wanted his wheels done to match his car. He decided to do a three-tone….., Ink Black wheels with Toretto Red insets, covered with Clear Vision top coat for extra protection and extreme shine. They were beautiful!!!
A set of wheels like this can take up to 8-12 hours, and entails a great amount of detail. Each coat gets its own masking & prep, powder, and bake cycle. For this particular set of wheels, we charged $500.
Later we had a customer who wanted his rims done as well, and he happened to have a very similar color of car. We were able to show him these rims as an example of what Full Blown Coatings can do. He was in love, but wanted to switch the colors to create his own look. He chose a three-tone…, Toretto Red rims with Ink Black insets, covered with Starlight Clear coat, which gave it more metallic flake. Another happy customer, another great day at Full Blown Coatings!!!

So, with a little help from Full Blown Coatings, “The Barbarian” got a personalized, new BLUE bike, for his 5th birthday, that was created special, just for him! powder-coated-barbarian-blue-bike
