We will do anything that we can fit in our tank..  Guns are probably going to be very big part of business!

We can do engine parts, wheels, picture frames, lamps, anything you can think of!  I am going to do my truck wheels in Carbon fiber for display.

we could do a helmet! the little bit of water that would get on the inside would be very easy to dry out.. We wont have to completely submerge it.

Very cool options you have there for the designs.  That would make for some really sweet details.

I've always like the look of Kevlar better than carbon fiber.  The color at least. Would be cool alternative to carbon fiber look bits.

Thatís what I found out last night searching hydro dipping.  This stock stood out to me.  Looks like real bark.



In general is the cost similar to painting or powder coating a item or is it a lot more expensive?  

NM found some prices from a online shop.  Not too terribly expensive.

A stock like that runs about $75.. So its alittle higher than powder coating, but you cant get any detail with powder like you can this stuff.. There are roughly 300 different patterns you can choose from. If it blows up and goes crazy i am going to buy the machine and software to design custom stuff.. That would be down the road though, cause that would be a stupid expensive machine!  LOL

Depends on how intricate the helmet is and what pattern you want..  Probably around $125
