Forgot to take pictures of everything installed... but Shaun did a fantastic job on replating my G50 spring plates and end covers in Zinc.

Same with all of your stuff Trent, some of my best work, have to get it up at the web site and your car on the Customer Cars page someday.

Needless to say, after learning the hard and expensive way here recently since I did not take the two flipping minutes to send him an email to ask if he even provided a particular refurbishment service, which to my chagrin he does. What was I thinking?!? So do not make my mistake. I sent it to another shop and I am and will be regretting that decision.

Just ask him about his services before going somewhere else. What is worst he could say? "Sorry I don't do that" Highly unlikely...

Bottom line, go with Shaun at Tru6 or at the very least ask him first !!!!

Shaun,

I am looking at windshield / rear window trim for my '80 Targa (the window seals are toast and need to be replaced). What are the advantages / disadvantages of refinishing with Cerakote as opposed to just buying new trim pieces? How close would they be in appearance? I am more concerned with durability than cost, but only to a certain point!

Thanks,

Thank you Trev, again, sorry to hear about your experience, I do my best to make sure every customer's expectations are met or better, exceeded when they unpack their parts.

My web site isn't done yet, will be in about 3 weeks when I get more pics up, but it shows most of what I do. tru-6.com

Hi Dru! Buying new means you don't have to ship them to me. This means you both don't have to be very careful taking them off, though I've found the wire-type PVC cutters work great for pulling out trim, and you don't have to pack them very carefully. You probably know that this trim bends just by looking at it with a stern glance.

Cerakote has a pencil test hardness of 9H, the hardest on the scale which would have to be as hard or harder than the paint Porsche uses.

Here is my current version of black for door handles and trim.

Is that right? 9H? I think powder coat is like 4H?

Time to start Cerakoting chassis...

Shaun,
I recently purchased a long hood latch from you and was very pleased with the quality of the finish. I had no idea of the scope of your business. Currently in process of turbo "special" bare metal build. In Arizona but will certainly be in touch and sending you a boat load of metal bits. Keep up the fine work!

I'm kinda thick sometimes, so please excuse that. Do you sell "new" trim with Cerakote? If so, at what cost?

Dru, your best bet is probably to buy new from Porsche and leave it at that.

I am reanodizing 2 sets in black for a pair of early Turbos but that's a special case. Porsche went to paint at some point (not sure when) over black anodizing.

The black is Trem as stated by Cerakote on their site. My guess is other colors are lower on the scale (why they focus on a particular black) but probably not down to 4H, or even close.


I am not a fan of powder as it goes on fairly thick.

Hi Barry,

TECHNO
Could you give us an idea of how much your plating cost ? Did you do any prep work, like removing the rubber from the spring plates, etc. Was it $20.00 or $399.00 ?

Shaun, You're still plating correct? I have a friend here performing a nut and bolt 356 restoration and he was looking for plating options. Thanks. Tom
