ZCP Powder Coat question

So a couple months back my car was at the dealership to get my Steering wheel trim replace and someone pull out with ZCP on his car and i knew i had to get them one day! So after months of searching for someone local I pick these up the other week from a forum member who decided to go with the GTS Wheels

Now does anyone from the Bay area know where i can powder coat these at and price per wheels.

Les Schwab in San Carlos can do it. $75 per wheel pretty much any color you want.

I had a set of BBS CHs powdercoated @ Precision Powder Coating in Belmont, CA. I paid $70 per wheel. Look for Allan - he's a good guy to work with.

Looks good, does anybody know how many times can you powder coat a wheel?

Im not sure how many times you can powder coat the wheels, but the powder coating process should out last any painted job.

Here some better pictures and my new build thread if you want to check out better views of the wheel.

I've never done any coloring with wheels before. What exactly is the difference between powder coating and semi gloss painting? It's seems the painting options I've seen are more expensive. I think those wheels look great and want to understand my options.

$75 sounds really cheap. Does that include stripping the wheels down completely before powder coating? I paid $120 per wheel but that included chemical stripping and sand blasting prior to the powder.

They acid bath them to strip them to bare metal. However, it doesn't include dismounting, mounting and balancing the tires.
