After 6 years of abuse the pitshark got a face lift. the pitshark originally had a clear coat finish which began peeling off after a year which exposed the bare metal and then the corrosion set in . note to self, clear coat is a bad idea. upon purchase in 2011 idolmaker and one other facility in miami were the only facilities at the time who owned them. $1100 later and a fresh powder coating finish applied by bpc, best powder coatings inc. located in hialeah, florida the pitshark is like brand new and ready for more punishment. powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. the main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. the coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". the powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. it is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.
