I sent all of my engine tin and injection parts to Awesome Powdercoat in Vanlue, Ohio to get them all powdercoated before I put it all on my new Raby Camper Special for my baywindow.

Beautiful job, good communication, and well packaged for shipping. Money very well spent and they really did a nice job on it. I am very pleased with the results. Very Happy

I too had a complete engine tin kit powdercoated by Awesome Powdercoat. Parts look outstanding, and great communication for me as well. I think it took a total of 3 days from start to finish once my payment was made. Also took the time to e-mail pics of my parts after he finished. Great service!

Well they have done it again.

I dropped off 5 rusty bus rims to have them powdercoated in Ohio and picked them up a week later on my way back to Maine. Came out super. I am very pleased.....again.

Note...that is my Jeep Comanche rim in the upper right corner.

Awesome is an appropriate name for the company. As with everyone else in this thread, I too am completely satisfied. Very quick turn around, excellent communication and great to deal with. If you need powdercoating done, don't mess around-just go with Awesome for a no-hassle transaction!!

I just got my shroud and tin and they look awesome. Volkaholic is great to deal with and comunicates often. He even mocked up my shroud that I sent him and sent me pictures as he was doing it. As soon as I learn how to post pictures I will.

I just ordered and installed the cylinder head tin deflectors. Fit was top notch. Good to see that guys like Volkaholic are stepping up to offer parts to correct crappy aftermarket tin. Can't wait to have a cooler, more reliable engine!

Thanks!

I just had my type IV tin finished up by Awesome Powdercoat. It looks amazing. The whole experience from start to finish was great. I will happily get more of my parts finished there.

Just got my muffler back from Clark; looks great!
I think I'll mount it on the wall in the living room. If I put it on the car, it'll just get dirty....

done and had the venturi ring added and a few holes filled. Great

communtications. Had a small problem with the end results and volksaholic

made it right. Great turn a round time even waiting on a part he didn't have.

Would definitely use again.

Hey folks! I really apperciate all the feedback. As you all know, the VW community is a tight group & it is great when people work together to improve what is avaliable.

PS - My email is in the process of changing from [email protected] to [email protected], I will have both for a while. My old email had limited file size & people kept sending me pics that crashed my in box. Not a problem with yahoo.

Thanks again for all your support!
Sincerely,
Volkaholic

I just received my order from Volkaholic and am absolutely thrilled. I purchased a complete tin set for my new engine plus had him powdercoat my Berg linkage. If you have been considering sourcing them for your tin, read below:

Customer Service: Awesome. Clark is friendly, helpful, answers emails quickly and provides plenty of information. He clearly enjoys dealing with people.

Product: Awesome. In addition to the complete set of tin, they modified everything to fit properly (I can see the mods, well done). They reworked my lower tin to clear the full flow adapter, installed the proper vanes in the cylinder tin and welded in the AN8 fittings into the valve covers. In addition he mocked up the Berg linkage bar so it would sit level on the Scat fan housing and put in threaded inserts exactly where I asked.

Finish: Awesome. I had my tin done in factory black satin finish and it's killer. I'll never spray paint a fan housing again as long as I live!

Packing and Shipping: Unbelievable. I've seen jet engine turbine parts that weren't packed this carefully. Each and every piece of tin was individually wrapped in bubble wrap and the whole kit protected beyond belief. And the shipping was overnight via FedEx ground at a very low price. By far the best packing and shipping ever from a vendor.

The Price: I bit the bullet and spent a lot on the tin and mods. The pricng was very fair and the cost of each mod and part was individually listed in my price quote and the accompanying paperwork.

This is a great vendor and deserves and earns the business. I'm happy to see such a great addition to our community. Good work Clark.

Hadn't thought of doing the berg linkage, what color did you do that in?

Same as the tin?
