    Need a stitch of info on split rim powder coating

    Just wondering if some one would be able to confirm if when a split rim is powder coated ,
    is it necessary to mask off the mating faces, or is it ok to have them coated also?

    I believe it is the first, but just wanted confirmation

    Thanks in advance

    Yeah good thanks Fran. You too I hope

    Would be even better if I didnt have to spend my next weeks worth of evenings sanding back powder coat that the painters 'forgot' to mask

    yeah pretty settled now Its lovely to have room for us all now.

    I was secretly hoping someone would say they would be fine, and save me the sanding job.

    I really really really really really really really really hate sanding!!!

    Erm You paint/powdercoat the lot then bolt them together or else they will rot fast .They will not go out of balance there painted all over from the factory .They will need balancing after in any case
