I’ve got a couple of new finishes of vent ring to show off. First is this satin black. Not bad eh?
The satin version has a little bit of metal flake in it. It shows the angles of the vent ring much better than the gloss black finish does. I was a little worried it wouldn’t be much different than the material around the vents anyway (which has a semi-gloss finish) but the metallic quality shines through.
My powdercoater rocks. That’s all there is to it.
And then there’s Wrinkle Finish. Yes, it must be capitalized.
Honestly, I’m stunned. I really REALLY expected the wrinkle finish to look just like the OEM dash parts it was covering up, but that isn’t the case at all. If even the smallest bit of light hits it, you get this amazing metallic shine off the wrinkles. It’s GORGEOUS.
If I hadn’t already started powdercoating various things on Bucky in gloss black, I’d be seriously considering swapping out the old gloss vent rings for these.
Gotta catch ’em all?
If you want some vent rings, you know where to go. I’ve got a huge pile of them.
I mentioned something about a contest, didn’t I?
