true, but it is still possible to get current (static) to flow to plastic, the proof is in most of the chrome parts we have on our cars, all plastic, no, the problem hides in the curing process, after powder been applied it need to be cured in a oven for 20 to 30 minute at about 400 d. you know plastics and high temps usually don't mix very well...dmtalon said:Isn't the engine cover Plastic? As far as I know, you can only powder coat Metal pieces.
Powder coating relies on a static charge by cliping a metal clip onto the object you are coating. I don't know which way, but basically the object get's - charge and the powder is + charged (or vise versa) which is how it sticks to the metal.
Hope this helps
I painted it myself.shong43826 said:
